(The Hosting News) – CloudLinux Inc. makers of CloudLinux OS, the only commercially-supported Linux OS made specifically for shared hosting, today announced that it is now being run on more than 5,000 production servers worldwide, a 100 percent increase in just six months.
CloudLinux isolates each user account within its own Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) allowing system administrators to limit CPU, memory, and the concurrent connections available to each server tenant. LVE effectively prevents the, “bad neighbor effect,” wherein one tenant can slow or take down an entire server – the number one cause of shared-server stability issues, making it an ideal platform for shared hosting.
“We are now beginning to see the exponential growth in CloudLinux OS adoption that we expected once the OS gains acceptance,” said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux CEO. “Shared hosters, data centers – and others – that need a commercially-supported, cost-effective means of providing a secure, dense, server environment are increasingly turning to CloudLinux to maximize efficiencies.”
More than 500 web hosting companies around the world run the CloudLinux OS on their servers today and that number is growing daily. Additionally, over 100 datacenter partners bundle CloudLinux with VPS (virtual private servers) and dedicated servers.
By limiting abuse, shared hosters can substantially increase stability and server density, bringing far greater efficiency to their businesses. As a part of the CloudLinux OS, CloudLinux now offers MySQL Governor which enables tight control over the MySQL resources available to users, and will soon release CageFS, the industry’s first virtualized file system for shared hosters. CageFS assures that user files are only available to, and viewable by, their owner. CloudLinux offers the fastest updates in the industry. Professional support is available 24/7.

CloudLinux OS is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS, as well as most major control panels including cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and others. Hosts can easily convert to CloudLinux, typically in less than 10 minutes.
By providing expertise in the areas on hosting, kernel, and open source, CloudLinux serves the specific needs of those in the web hosting industry. Founded in 2009, CloudLinux is privately funded and headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
CloudLinux has been recognized as a leader in the industry by receiving numerous awards. Twice, CloudLinux has been listed as a top 10 cloud provider by HostReview and CloudLinux has received the Editor’s Choice Award by Web Host Magazine & Buyer’s Guide.
