We are going to start work on replacing all Plesk servers with cPanel/CloudLinux servers in an effort to standardize our offering and provide greater performance.

We will likely start with our EU region clients since the provider we are using has had a few problems over the past week.

Old Setup:
Plesk 11.5 over CentOS 6.6

New Setup:
cPanel (Latest) over CloudLinux

-We can limit the amount of memory, CPU, disk I/O on a per-client basis, which will keep your site running fast (by keeping abusers or hacked sites from using all of the available resources).
-Better functionality of PHP version selector, this setup lets you pick the modules you wish to enable/disable on a per-account basis!
-Alternative PHP versions are also correct when you SSH or run via cron, unlike the way it works with Plesk (you simply call it via "php" and you will get the correct version your site uses).
-Ability to limit outbound emails per account instead of having to disable email functions after we get blacklisted.
-Ability to select from more PHP versions than we can offer on Plesk, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 for example.
-Automated system updates including PHP version updates (about 1 week delayed) without manual intervention from us.

These functions are already available on our NYC server.  If this is your closest server, you might want to request migration and see if it offers any benefits for your site.
