New version of Virtualmin Professional enhances support for Ruby on Rails, making it the first product of its kind: A full-featured web hosting control panel that enables easy Ruby on Rails development and deployment in a shared hosting environment. Other new features include advanced system data analytics and graphs.

Virtualmin, Inc., a systems management startup developing Open Source and commercial administration products for the web hosting industry, today announced the release of version 3.46 of Virtualmin Professional and Virtualmin GPL. Virtualmin is a next generation web server control panel, addressing the needs of Web 2.0 developers and the web hosting providers who serve them. Virtualmin is available for all major Linux distributions and Solaris.

This new version of Virtualmin Professional enhances support for Ruby on Rails, making it the first product of its kind: A full-featured web hosting control panel that enables easy Ruby on Rails development and deployment in a shared hosting environment. While Ruby on Rails provides for very rapid application development, the deployment options for those applications has been limited to just a few Ruby on Rails focused hosting providers. Now, any hosting provider that offers Virtualmin Professional also offers an excellent platform for Ruby on Rails application deployment.

Virtualmin Professional Ruby on Rails support includes:

  •     A comprehensive UI for installing and managing Ruby Gems, a packaging system for Ruby libraries and applications.
  •     Several easily installable Ruby on Rails applications, like Instiki wiki, Radiant CMS, Mephisto blog, and more.
  •     An instant Ruby on Rails skeleton creation tool, with automatic setup of Mongrel and Apache proxy rules, to make getting started with Rails development quick and painless.
  •     Safe deployment of Ruby on Rails applications, even in a shared hosting environment, removing one of the primary barriers to deployment of RoR on shared hosting systems.

System Data Analytics
Virtualmin, Inc. also announced new system data analytics features, with advanced interactive plotting features. Memory, disk, quota and bandwidth usage, as well as Virtualmin statistics like virtual server count, mailboxes, and databases, can all be graphed over time, including hourly, daily, weekly and yearly graphs.
