Hi All, I'm definitely not expecting immediate answers or solutions here... although that would be nice! So this is more of a conversation starter. Our company has been a cPanel/WHM customer for over 20 years, and we've seen a fair few major Linux kernel versions over that time, including the inevitable EOLs for older versions. Given that in-place upgrades to major new versions is not a viable option, therefore we're on an endless rinse-and-repeat cycle of 1. Commission new servers. 2. Migrate sites to new servers. 3. Decommission old servers. Migrating 100s of sites between servers is a non-trivial exercise, especially when the DNS of many of those sites are externally hosted and managed. Non-trivial means time consuming and costly... and hard (but not always impossible) to pass some or all of this cost onto our clients. It would be brilliant if either: 1. In-place upgrades to new major versions of Linux become possible (I sense that this is unlikely), OR 2. Serverless computing to the rescue? How far are we away (or maybe it's a reality already) of being able to run cPanel/WHM on a serverless platform? Thoughts, feedback, ideas, welcome. Thanks, Ross
