(The Hosting News) – Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, announces that in the last 90 days, it has been selected by 16 dedicated and virtual server providers and data centers covering a broad geographical spectrum of markets including Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines, Russia, Norway, Romania, Portugal, Belgium, Latvia, Ireland, U.K. as well as the U.S. and Canada. As a result, Cloud Linux is now available in the top global hosting markets. These new service provider partners recognize the value of CloudLinux technology, bundling it with their server offering alongside with popular control panels, driven by the growth in popularity of CloudLinux among shared hosting providers.
The newest CloudLinux customers include Hosting Ireland Limited, VeriPortal (Turkey), Usonyx (Singapore), TopHostingCenter (Canada), CH-Center Hosting (Romania) and UK2Group, which operates a family of brands across the U.K. and Europe including VPS.net brand. CloudLinux is gaining traction among a wide range of customers because CloudLinux is uniquely able to address complex shared hosting server issues because now they can reclaim control of their environments, improving stability and performance and making their servers virtually “crash proof.”
“We are grateful to our community of users who have shown tremendous support and interest in our solution,” states Igor Seletskiy, CEO and Founder of Cloud Linux Inc. “The LVE technology was specifically developed for this market and we are honored that these leading edge technology companies trust us to introduce CloudLinux to their infrastructure.”
A key problem that CloudLinux addresses is that while hosting providers often host hundreds or thousands of customers on one server, even with vigilant monitoring, a single customer can affect performance of the entire server adversely. CloudLinux technology allows service providers to control CPU resources at an individual tenant level, significantly improving stability and reliability of the server. Its cutting-edge technology offers service providers the ability to double the density on its servers and control server resources via its new Lightweight Virtual Environment™ (LVE). Priced at a fraction of the cost of other options, CloudLinux LVE helps extract more performance per server, provides flexibility in management and better, faster updates. In addition, CloudLinux recently introduced a series of tools to help hosting providers gain more control over their server environments including:
Secure LVE (beta) extends LVE isolation to users with a virtualized file system. The file system will separate each user into its own environment, preventing one user from seeing any other users on the server. This creates a new level of security, making it much harder for hackers to attack, deface, or steal data from the shared web server.
MySQL Governor (beta) monitors MySQL users and restricts connectivity if they start using too many resources. The tool comes with a utility to see current usage giving unprecedented control and visibility over MySQL usage, significantly diminishing the number of support issues caused by MySQL abuse.
LVE wrappers are the set of tools that allow system administrators to run various users, programs & daemons within a Lightweight Virtual Environment. It provides control over system resources at the application level and prevents misbehaving programs running within the LVE from draining resources and slowing down or taking down the whole system.
Cloud Linux is becoming a popular choice among the wider community of hosting services providers since it is proving to be efficient, profitable and effective at reducing operational downtime.
