We are currently reviewing solutions available in order to create a simple and robust hosting solution for our clients. 

After reviewing various « panel » type of solution (not so robust at the level of the , we were wondering if anyone had already developed something which would incorporate (partially or totally) the following aspects : 

1. strong quota management (ideally based on ZFS) 

2. secure user access to data (FTP/SFTP) - authentication (LDAP ? or DB based)

3. template based jail (in order to provide pre-configured environment to clients) — might include classic environment such as PHP + MySQL (and all classic Drupal, Wordpress, …) or other types of environment. 

4. API based on a correctly described language (XML ? SOAP, …) in order to pilot that from our existing front end or backend (J2EE based) 

I have two skilled engineers which will work on this project for couple of months… 
If things have only been partially developed, It might be interesting to further discuss… 

So there might be a good OpenSource deal to find here… 

Sincerely yours.
