(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – GigeNET recently announced that they have partnered with CloudLinux Inc. This partnership presents an amazing opportunity for GigeNET’s new & existing clients to improve their shared hosting environment. As a part of the partnership, GigeNET will bundle CloudLinux with their high performing servers that they currently provide their clients and who choose to add this enhanced operating system.
Hosting companies understand that reaching a high level of stability can be difficult and, sometimes, unachievable for many shared hosting companies. Sudden resource usage spikes, increases in traffic, and hacker attacks are some of the problems system administrators cope with everyday. For years, this has been accepted as a cost of doing business. It costs money, it costs time and, more importantly, it costs customer trust. Therefore, it was time to consider changing the underlying OS to eliminate those costs.
GigeNET President, Ameen Pishdadi explains “Our partnership with CloudLinux is another milestone in our effort to provide our clients with the latest software and cutting-edge technology. With the increase in hackers and abusive users, CloudLinux is an excellent solution to the ongoing effort to mitigate security breaches and server attacks.”
GigeNET will now allow their customers access to amazing enhanced features at a low cost. These features include:
*Isolating users from each other to avoid the “bad neighbor effect.
*Preventing users from seeing configuration files and other private information.
*Allowing end user to select PHP versions 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, and 5.5.
*Giving the power to monitor and control limits, such as CPU, IO, Memory, and others.
*Helping to restrict and throttle MySQL database abusers.
*Compatibility with all major control panels.
*Interchangeable with CentOS and RHEL.
GigeNET clients who operate a shared hosting environment, use cPanel, (or any other control panel) to host multiple websites will now have the option to add CloudLinux. Shared hosts that use CloudLinux experience less downtime, more stability and happier customers. This means that such hosts grow faster, and will use more servers.
GigeNET recognizes that CloudLinux was the first commercial OS that meets the specific needs and demands of web hosting providers. Together, GigeNET and CloudLinux will help to improve the overall stability of shared hosting using Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE). LVE is an isolation technology that limits the amount of resources (CPU, entry processes and memory) available to a specific application or customer, and increases server density and reliability.
They are looking forward to a very long and successful partnership.
