          The new console (already in private beta for some 500 customers and to be in public beta from next week) already includes this (no server access option) along many more fine grained privileges that will be possible to set.

          We are not going to implement it on old console as it should be out of the way in short time.

          Oh yes, that's great. When is the new console going to take over the old console. I mean what's the ETA for old console decommissioning?

          This is such a no-brainer feature that is a must have. Without this the access system is kaput. Here's a scenario. I give access to a team member with limited application level only access.

          Now with that access, he can do the following:
          - Upgrade / downgrade my server.
          - Change server settings and packaging too.

          Above two are a killer. Why would I want someone to change the server settings when all I gave them is an access to an app.

          Please implement this asap. Without this I am just getting built up a lot of frustration.

            After some difficulties with Cloudflare, we have spoken now with Sucuri (https://sucuri.net/). They offer malware removal, website firewall (providing DDoS protection among other things, requires DNS redirection to point to their firewalls) and site scanning (via local agent). All features independent (we can offer all or some).

            We are thinking that a better approach to solving our customers problems when it comes to security and performance will be to offer (as add-ons) Sucuri (security centric and very focused on our most common apps) and MaxCDN (pure CDN focused on performance).

            Any one has had experience with Sucuri? We have already tested (and in talks with them) and looks very promising.

            Let us know thoughts on this (Sucuri + MaxCDN) approach (vs Cloudfront). We know this is well overdue and want to get it rolling.

            I am using cloudflare and they are pros when it comes to DDoS.

            What was the difficulties with Cloudflare? Please elaborate.

              For the last couple of month we have been doing preliminary work on this. We are working on a cluster like solution that will provide high availability and easy scalability while offering a high degree of control and customisation. We expect to have an alpha version available at the end of the second quarter.

              Will keep you posted.

              Load Balancer and Horizontal Scaling please. It doesn't make sense to buy a 32 GB machine and have the risk while I can have 4 x 4 GB machine and load balance it with a load balancer.

                I think you guys should create your own cache for wordpress to have competitive advantage. I don't know how much percentage of your customer base is Wordpress, but I can bet it is huge. When I compare you folks with WPengine (who has their own Evercache https://wpengine.com/scale-to-millions-of-hits-a-day-or-hour/) and Pantheon (where you are not allowed to run external cache as their infrastructure takes care of it), you guys run shy when it comes to caching.
