  • Ann Arbor, MI (1888PressRelease) September 14, 2011 - CloudLinux, Inc., today released CloudLinux OS version 6.1, which is based on kernel version 2.6.32 that adds enhanced security, stability and compatibility to the company's flagship product.

    As the only commercially-supported Linux OS made specifically for shared hosting, CloudLinux OS 6.1 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. With the release of CloudLinux 6.1, the company is offering free conversion/installation support through October 15, 2011.

    "CloudLinux 6.1 further improves on what has quickly become the premier OS choice for shared hosters," said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux CEO. "Support for the latest Linux kernel enables hosting providers to offer the best service offerings to their customers by delivering shared hosting products that best meet the needs and budgets of businesses of all sizes."

    CloudLinux cages each user account within its own lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) allowing sysadmins to limit CPU, memory, and concurrent connections available to each tenant. LVE effectively prevents the, "Bad neighbor effect," wherein one tenant can slow or take down an entire server. By limiting abuse, shared hosters can substantially increase server density, bringing far greater efficiency to their business. In addition to CloudLinux OS, CloudLinux offers MySQL Governor which enables tight control over the MySQL resources available to users, and will soon release CageFS, the industry's only 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.
