(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Innovative shared hosting operating system (OS) developer CloudLinux (http://www.cloudlinux.com), announced today its achievement of 25,000 server installs. CloudLinux currently has over 2,000 direct customers, over 300 partners, and an estimated 2,000 hosting companies using the CloudLinux operating system through partners.
“This is a significant milestone for CloudLinux as we continue to evolve the operating system and push out new features to help our hosting customers continue to grow their businesses and increase revenue,” says Igor Seletskiy, Founder and CEO at CloudLinux. “Our core features have evolved to help shared hosting companies resolve stability and density issues, which improves performance.”
CloudLinux is growing at a rapid pace of over 725 new servers being added monthly. This number has doubled since 2012 and continues to increase year after year. CloudLinux says its success is due to helping hosters reduce hardware and support costs, while providing features that matter to end users.
“We have proven that we can significantly improve security and provide better performance for hosters,” says Seletskiy. “And we provide flexibility such as supporting multiple PHP versions – 4.4 to 5.6 – and we support over 100 PHP extensions. All of this available through the CloudLinux PHP Selector.”
Companies can grow faster with CloudLinux due to better stability and performance increases using CloudLinux technology including CageFS and SecureLinks. CageFS places users in their own virtualized environment so no other users can see or access their account or files. SecureLinks protects users from symbolic links attacks. Both CageFS and SecureLinks are transparent to users.
“We still have plenty of room to grow and will continue to improve the CloudLinux operating system,” says Seletskiy. “We spend time with our customers daily to understand their needs and work hard to implement new features that the majority of our customers can use right away – as a result, our customers can experience continued growth.”
CloudLinux recently announced CloudLinux DB Governor, giving hosters the ability to throttle MySQL database usage. CloudLinux also utilizes the Lightweight Virtualized Environment (LVE) to isolate tenants into their own environment, allowing limits to be set on each tenant’s resources including CPU, IO, Memory, Processes, Connections, and more.
