Hi,
This might be a very easy question to answer, which is probably why I'm missing the solution.

I've been successfully running a CentOS 5.x/cPanel cloud set up for quite a few years for my website clients, but I've just won a contract which will outstrip my existing set up.

Part of this new contract is that the client will periodically send out a large mailshot to their clients (In the 1000's) as well as hosting several websites.

For now though, their requirements is for me to host 3 websites and handle the mailshots.

That's the background, and I'm already planning to have dedicated servers during the latter part of next year, but for now, I only want to expand my current set up.

My question is simply, what is the most efficient way for me to expand my current single CentOS 5.x/cPanel cloud server to 2 servers?

Am I right in just setting up a new cPanel server complete with new license, or is there a better way? Ideally I'd like them to act as one entity, but if they have to be independent then thats fine for now.

I have full control over how these servers are set up, from CPU size, to memory, to disk space to as many Static IP addresses as I want.

Thanks in advance,

Each cPanel server runs independently of the other and will require it's own license.

I'm not clear on your use of the word cloud in that sentence.

What is CloudLinux?

CloudLinux is a commercially supported Linux operating system interchangeable with CentOS. It includes kernel level technology called LVE that allows you to control CPU and memory on per tenant bases. It is a bases for application level virtualization. CloudLinux delivers advanced resource management, better security and performance optimizations specifically targeted to multi-tenant hosting environment. This improved performance helps hosting service providers and datacenters provide better support to their customers, reduce churn and save money.
