Partnership Expands CloudLinux benefits of increased
Stability and Performance to their Customers
Princeton, NJ, June 23, 2010 – Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, announces today that CH-Center Hosting, a Romania based full service hosting company, will offer CloudLinux across its hosted offerings. CH-Center Hosting provides its customers shared hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), as well as dedicated hosting. Selected for its new innovative Lightweight Virtual Environment™(LVE) technology, CH-Center will deployCloudLinux to increase its ability to deliver stability, reliability and a higher level of customer service to its customers.
“CH-Center is excited to offer CloudLinux to our customers. We have been looking for a solution to allow better control of server resources and this is the best solution we have encountered,” states CH-Center Network Administrator, Claudiu Popescu.
CloudLinux’s core technology is Lightweight Virtual Environment™ a kernel-level technology that limits the amount of resources (CPU, I/O, memory) available to a group of processes. While similar to container type virtualization technology, LVE is completely transparent and lightweight. Once installed, the LVE works transparently to manage resources that the hosting provider sets for the accounts on a server. It controls the CPU resources to ensure that each account on a shared server is allocated enough resources to run efficiently without jeopardizing the other tenants on that server, making the server more stable and delivering better performance.
With LVE, CloudLinux can deliver performance, reliability and operational benefits for hosting providers like CH-Center including:
Increased density and capability per server without increasing risk
More efficient and stable servers
Reduced impact of unpredictable events like load spikes that can take down or slow down a server
Reduced operational costs related to hardware, electricity, datacenter space and management costs
Better utilization of existing infrastructure
CH-Center Hosting provides a diverse set of service offerings for the different needs of its customer. With CloudLinux, they will deliver:
- Increased uptime since no one account can slow down or take down an entire shared server
- Better reliability and performance with a server that is running at peak operating capacity
- Compatibility with all major control panels for easy management
- Protection from hackers and poorly written scripts that drain resources, cause outages and impact productivity
“CH-Center will be able to provide a unique solution for their customers and benefit from the reliability and performance CloudLinux can deliver,” states Igor Seletskiy, Cloud Linux Founder and CEO. “Service providers can achieve higher density and increased stability with our proven technology which ultimately provides a higher level of service and support to their clients.”
With LVE, hosting providers like CH-Center now have the tools to control the CPU and I/O demands of individual tenants, so that a single site cannot slow or take down a whole server and provide customers with the easy management and solid solutions they need to stay ahead in business.
CloudLinux is priced to support all types of hosting providers. For shared hosting providers, CloudLinux is available at a tiered retail monthly price based on the number of servers under management. The CloudLinux Partner Program offers discounts and more competitive pricing and a support model designed to meet the specific requirements of hosting companies as well as an opportunity to leverage the CloudLinux brand.
