Great news, CentOS 7 is now available on our full range of servers! We have Vanilla and Plesk installation profiles set up and as soon a cPanel is available on CentOS 7 we’ll have an installation profile for that too.

So what’s new in CentOS 7?

The init system has been replaced by Systemd which incorporates features that help enhance scalability and optimise performance. The default PHP version is now 5.4.0 and MySQL has been replaced by MariaDB, delivering further improvements in performance. There’s also enhanced support for containers.

If you’re interested in upgrading get in touch with your account manager for details.
