Virtual Server Providers

Virtual Server Providers is the mechanism we’ve developed to allow us to connect multiple accounts to the same cloud service.

In prior versions of WPCD we could only connect to a single account at any cloud server provider. That works well for most customers. But there are use-cases where you might need to use multiple accounts.

For example:

  • You have multiple departments or branches in your company, each with their own cloud-service account, sub-account or budget.
  • You have customers that want to use their own accounts (for security or because they’ve negotiated better rates than you can provide.)
  • You have separate accounts for development, staging and production.
  • You have separate accounts in different geographies because of geo-political and privacy considerations.
  • You choose to deploy across multiple accounts in order to limit the fall-out if any single account is compromised.

With our Virtual Server Provider feature you can now meet these requirements.

This feature also opens the door for connecting custom servers at providers we do not directly support.

This feature is now available in Version 4.0.0 of WPCloudDeploy. It is being released as an add-on as well as part of the All Access suite.
