Reviews

  • 10 months ago
    This module has really made integrating OpenStack and WHMCS fantastically easy. My favorite part is that the users can do everything for their OpenStack VPS from right within WHMCS, so no one has to create another account. If you've ever used a pure-OpenStack provider, you likely have some (basically) UUID for a username and another panel to log into. This module skips all of that for you, easy peezy!
  • 2 years ago
    This module is production ready and we create more than 1000 openstack instances with this module without any issue!
  • 5 years ago
    Well done! I'm very pleased with ModulesGarden support. They were very pleasant and responsive from the start. This experience gave me confidence to explore more of their module offerings.
