CloudLinux to Show How Hosting Companies can Increase Server Stability and Density

Web Host BlogANN ARBOR, Mich. – CloudLinux Inc. makers of CloudLinux OS, the only commercially-supported Linux OS (operating system) made specifically for shared hosting, will advise attendees at the upcoming annual Automation Bootcamp cPanel conference in Austin, Texas from October 10-12 how they can become more efficient by switching to CloudLinux. The director of operations at A Small Orange will lead a session on how the company converted to CloudLinux.

More than 400 attendees are expected from all over the world. This is the sixth annual technical and training conference, which brings together technical decision makers, executives and product managers.

“Once hosters see the benefits of CloudLinux, and the ease of conversion, they realize there is no reason to stay with their current OS,” said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux CEO. “With our three sessions, and hearing a current user’s perspective, they will be able to see for themselves.”

CloudLinux will be featured in the following sessions:

CloudLinux: MySQL Governor Improvement

CloudLinux is being run on more than 5,000 production servers worldwide, a 100 percent increase in the past six months. 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.

The way CloudLinux works is that it 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.

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.
