Sunshine Coast, QLD Australia – atmail, a leading email hosting solutions provider and the company behind more than 40 million mailboxes worldwide, today announced the release of their newest product, store(obj), an object storage plugin for Dovecot, designed to help email administrators drive email storage costs down.

“Our new object storage plugin is yet another example of our commitment to continually improve our offering and help customers reduce their costs,” said CEO Dave Richards. “After all, who doesn’t want to drive the costs down on their email platform?”


Additional benefits of atmail’s store(obj) plugin include: reduction of an organisation’s exposure to the inherent risks of storing all of their data in-house; compatibility with various cloud storage and cluster file system vendors; de-duplication support; compression support; cache support for bandwidth optimisation; and flexible administration (for example, an email administrator can choose which attachments will be uploaded to cloud storage, based on multiple parameters).

Object storage brings simplification of current file system storage from a directory structure of traditional file systems to a flat list of ‘buckets’, that store information using unique IDs rather than filenames. This means that for each piece of data stored, the amount of overhead data (metadata) required is significantly lower than a traditional file system. Object storage systems store this metadata with the object itself, which makes it very easy to scale. High availability is provided by replicating the objects across many geo-locations and disk drives.

Whilst object storage might have only gathered some serious steam in recent years with the rise of Amazon S3, the origins of object storage can be credited back to research on Network Attached Secure Disks led by Garth Gibson in 1995. That was the research that first promoted the concept of splitting less common operations (such as namespace manipulations), from common operations (such as read and writes), to optimise the performance and scale of both.

PALO ALTO, CA – CloudLinux, the maker of the leading operating system for hosting providers, announced today the beta release of the CloudLinux OS Reseller Limits feature, which allows resellers to manage end-user resource usage. Now hosting providers can set limits for the amount of resources each reseller can operate. It gives tools to the resellers to control the resources each end-user has. These resources include CPU, IO, memory, number of processes, and concurrent connections per each end-user.

The CloudLinux OS proprietary Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology prevents users from bringing down the server by allowing hosts to set up individual resource limits. This ensures that users can never use more resources than was allocated to them, and now the ability to set limits has been extended to the resellers for their end-users.


“CloudLinux pioneered end-user limits seven years ago, yet, the ability to limit resellers was still out of reach for hosters,” said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux chief executive officer and founder. “Over the past eighteen months, our team has been working actively on this highly anticipated feature and we are very excited to announce its beta.”

The Reseller Limits feature within the LVE Manager will ensure the stability and security of servers and will allow hosting providers to offer more valuable services to their resellers. It will also empower resellers to expand their offering to their end-users, adjust their pricing models, and optimize space usage.

To learn more, customers can watch the CloudLinux Academy webinar on LVE Manager Reseller Limits: https://youtu.be/0fogW3rOPfQ
