Can I create a single Hosting Plan targeting multiple servers?

A concrete example I'd want to be able to do is the following.

My MS Sql Server is not installed on the same server where I have my Hyper V.
If I wan't to expose both HyperV and MS Sql Server to a customer, I have to create two hosting plans, one targeting SQL and another targeting Hyper V.

In the customers view, they now have to choose between their hosting plans, depending on whether they want work with SQL or HyperV. They also loose the overview for all resources at once.

It it possible to create a joined Hosting Plan? Or maybe a joined Hosting Space?
I couldn't make it work with AddOns, but maybe they are the way to go, and I'm using them wrong?

Hello,

This is where Virtual Servers come into play.

One thing that is important is that the "System"  service is always equal to Web and FTP if you have it.

You then assign the Virtual Server to the hosting plan which can have all kind of different servers and services.

Regards,

Marco

I'm sure there's something I don't understand then.

When creating a Hosting Plan, I have to target a server. I can't find a way to assign multiple servers (neither virtual now physical) to the same hosing plan?
I'm able to select a single server and then the services/quatas that's available on that server.

When you say "... the hosting plan which can have all kind of different servers", then how do I assign multiple servers to a hosting plan?

A virtual server can assign services from multiple servers.

So you have:
Virtual Server 1 -->

System: web1

Web: Web1

FTP: Web1

mySQL: DB1

MSSQL: MSQL1

etc etc.

You can also "balance"

For example: SQL: DB1, DB2, DB3

You then simply select a single Virtual Server in the hosting plan, which represents multiple servers/services.

Arh! That makes sense!

Thank you so much for being that explicit for me 🙂
