Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, is the recipient of the August 2010 Editor’s Choice Award from Web Host Magazine and Buyer’s Guide. Cloud Linux received the award for its ability to isolate individual websites on a multi-tenant server using Lightweight Virtual Environment™ technology and for its web hosting-centric focus as hosting providers migrate to cloud based service models.
CloudLinux was launched in early 2010 and is a new commercially supported operating system proven to increase server density, stability and performance, helping customers realize reduced operating costs and increased profitability. Cloud Linux invented the Lightweight Virtual Environment™ a kernel-level technology that isolates specific hardware resources in a lightweight environment and prevents one tenant on a shared server from affecting others – especially due to a sudden peak load from a single tenant. The technology is designed to eliminate the risks of unstable servers that can undermine businesses’ operations and profitability.
“Hosting providers have a unique set of needs and they require a solid infrastructure that can be managed easily and effectively for complex and multi-tenant environments,” states Igor Seletskiy, CEO and Founder of Cloud Linux Inc. “We built CloudLinux to give hosting providers the control they need to protect customers from outages often caused by individual tenants. This award is a rewarding validation of the work we are doing and the team is greatly honored to receive the Editor’s Choice Award.”
CloudLinux has signed on 41 datacenter partners and is installed on more than 880 servers in less than six months. It is compatible with all major hosting control panels, including Plesk, cPanel, ISPmanager and InterWorx control panel products, as well as with Apache and LiteSpeed web servers. It is also used as a base for Parallels next generation H2E hosting platform..
