CA Workload Automation

CA Workload Automation is well suited for firms having to manage and monitor multiple applications operating in multiple environments. and having SLA requirements. CA Workload Automation is less appropriate and not cost-effective for non-critical applications and/or jobs. CA Workload Automation is ideal for companies that require reliable and stable Production support for their business critical jobs to finish on time.

I personally use it for any website hosting I do for me and others. There are a few others but I have stuck with the old tried and true and it always works for me and I know how to get around it so it has become a breeze for me. For those who are extremely new to websites and hosting or to those with very little technical know how cPanel could be very overwhelming and they might want to do like a managed WordPress hosting where they don't really have to see or deal with cPanel. I also probably wouldn't use it for straight email hosting. If you have thousands of cPanel accounts it may get very expensive and that could be a factor.

  • The costs can be a limiting factor for some businesses if you are not using a web hosting company that uses it. I have been experimenting with Cloud hosting, which can be very daunting for the novice. There is an option to install it on the cloud but it is expensive.

Although it can be a little bit bloated with a lot of options and configurations, it's very straightforward to use and maintain. So it's a great option even if you don't have large experience in hosting configuration. The WHM tool is more suited to heavy users since it requires more expertise, so it has a steep learning curve to better understand how to use it.

I have never had a problem with cPanel that required me to contact support so I can't really give any feedback here. I've never lost a password, encountered a system-breaking bug, been hacked, etc. I would think that this speaks to the reliable nature of the service and product.

cPanel offers a more friendly to beginners experience compared to Ajenti. The latter is feature rich but you will need more technical know how to navigate. cPanel is more accessible and universal and for those reasons a great solution for my business needs. cPanel works best with shared or VPS hosting. Ajenti seemed to be a great solution for VPS management.
