    Hey,
    PPA is dead. Do you have any plans for future? Do you wait for hosting module for OAE? Or do you migrate to another solution like Plesk with Multi server module, ISPConfig, home-grown solution? Thanks for your replies and suggestions!

    Hi Jan, the two main problems we have with OAE are that it costs in addition to the Plesk licenses required on every node, and that it requires billing run through OAE. The former I would guess would probably result in 5x or more than our cost for PPA alone (OAE already being more than our PPA cost, at the $499/mo price I most recently saw), while the latter would cause problems for our existing billing system that is fully integrated with our ticketing/billing/management software.

    Plesk Multi-Server doesn't currently support dedicated mail nodes, centralized DNS, or Windows, though those are on their roadmap. They say they'll help migrate but I don't know how they could accomplish that until it is more finished, in a year or two. A Plesk license would also be necessary for every service node as I understand it.

    Overall, we're kind of depressed and looking for options...

    Wow, OAE seems to be very pricey. We are investigating migration to multiple standalone Plesk Onyx servers with WHMCS and modules its for "server balancing".

    I should amend my post to say the Plesk part of the pricing is much less than the $30 I remembered...the low end being $5/month and the upper end is $15 for a VPS. Multi-Server is $10/month in addition to that.

    In post http://forum.odin.com/threads/plesk-automation-roadmap.336531 it was stated OAE was $1000/mo, and I thought I'd been told $599, but now it's at $499 plus a free year, so maybe they're having trouble convincing people to convert...
