Top 3 user-friendly Multi-Server Management Tools

System administrators probably all agree that a web hosting control panel is more or less essential to their jobs. Because it eliminates the need to manually manage disparate servers – a time-consuming task. Control panels make multi-server management less of a chore because they handle site launches, security, and updates automatically. Here we’re looking at which multi-server management solutions are the most user-friendly.

Server Control Panels Guide How Multi-Server Management Works

DirectAdmin

DirectAdmin

DirectAdmin does not offer single-dashboard for multi-server management. It does support DNS Clustering though. Plus, it can automate the transfer of DNS data to and from other DirectAdmin machines. And finally, it can look out for instances of domains that have been duplicated on a DA network.

InterWorx

Interworx

This web hosting control panel divides itself into NodeWorx for admins and SiteWorx for website owners. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feature the convenience of multi-server management from one dashboard.

For clustering, one box acts as the Cluster Manager, meanwhile, other machines are Nodes.  They mount the CM /home partition in order to balance the load between all servers. And the CM server retains all data.

ISPManager

ISPManager

ISPmanager 5 Business is a multi-server management solution that can manage server clusters and handle data based both locally and remotely. They installed the node on each of the remote machines on the network, managing the nodes using remote calls. Hence, each local node is managed just like every other one, apart from when adding a new cluster node.
