Linux Containers: Press Release

CloudLinux Announces Preferred Partner Program

VPS.net first to join initiative

CloudLinux, Inc., developers of a commercially supported Linux server operating system made specifically for shared hosting, has announced its Preferred Partner Program with VPS.net the first to join.

VPS.net, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, with operations and data centers all over the world, is part of UK2 Group, which provides web hosting and Internet services to a million customers worldwide. With offices in London and Utah, the UK2 Group employs more than 200 staff. VPS.net provides a high-performance, optimized and scalable cloud hosting service that includes the CloudLinux OS, which it offers to all of its customers worldwide.

As a Preferred Partner, VPS.net and CloudLinux will do joint marketing and sales while VPS.net will have special access to technical resources. Additionally, VPS.net will host CloudLinux repositories allowing for exceptionally fast and reliable updates for VPS.net customers using CloudLinux software.

"The combination of CloudLinux OS with service from VPS.net gives shared hosters ready access to deliver to their customers," said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux CEO. "The enhanced security and stability offered by CloudLinux OS provides an unmatched experience for shared hosting customers and is proven on more than 5,000 production servers running CloudLinux OS."

"The opportunity to expand our relationship with CloudLinux made perfect sense for us," said Terry Myers, chief evangelist, VPS.net. "They deliver a product that is in high demand from our customer base and offer an innovative solution addressing common problems faced in shared hosting environments."

CloudLinux cages each user account within its own Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE), allowing system administrators 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.

Also, CloudLinux OS includes 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 also offers the fastest updates in the industry, with professional support available 24/7.

About CloudLinux, Inc.

By providing expertise in the areas of 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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
