Focus on developing and scaling your web application, not on running infrastructure or managing security – Plesk helps you with all your WebOps needs.

What is WebOps?

Web Operations (or WebOps) is defined as a domain of expertise within IT systems management that entails the deployment, operation, security, maintenance, tuning, and repair of web-based systems. It is considered a subset of the larger DevOps movement. In the past, these tasks required a number of specialists to ensure correct functioning of all the components throughout an application’s lifetime. Today, the WebOps role is rapidly becoming a distinct specialty to support application developers by automating all such relevant tasks and processes through a platform like Plesk.  These processes are today mostly based in the cloud – hosted at a service provider or one of the large cloud infrastructure providers such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure.

How does WebOps differentiate from shared hosting?

  • Shared Hosting is generic and focused on SysAdmins – WebOps focuses on developers.
  • Shared Hosting is geared towards services (websites, email, etc.) – WebOps comprises application development workflows plus automation of infrastructure and security underneath.
  • Shared Hosting is about installing services only – WebOps handles the whole life cycle from installation, operation, maintenance and security of services.
  • Shared Hosting uses server resources in a siloed mode – WebOps provides an integrated environment of services that is entirely friction free to operate.

Ready-to-code Environment

As a developer, Plesk not only provides you a siloed set of services but a full ready-to-code environment. That time saved will increase Flow and get you in your zone faster, whether it’s a simple WordPress instance, a complex environment of multiple PHP versions, PHP Composer and databases or even Javascript frameworks like NodeJS.  IDE available directly within Plesk.

Rock Solid Infrastructure & Server Security

Security for Web applications is something both developers and SMB end customers consider important once it’s too late.

With Plesk, you get all your security needs installed at a simple click, with pre-defined security pre-sets so you don’t need to think about configurations.  If you still need flexibility to update any of these pre-sets, that’s also available.  Sleep tight at night – by using Plesk Security on every level – Operating System, Network, Web Application and Plesk itself.

Vertical Auto Scalability
