CloudLinux Inc., a software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, has announced that VPS.NET, a leader in the cloud hosting arena, will begin to offer CloudLinux as one of its standard Linux Operating Systems (OS) on all of its VPS cloud offerings. VPS.NET is an elastic cloud hosting provider offering instant scalable Virtual Private Server (VPS) solutions.
"VPS.NET customers want full control and flexibility from their cloud solutions," said Ditlev Bredahl, CEO of UK2 Group, parent company to VPS.NET. '"CloudLinux provides our clients another way to have full control over their hosted environments, adding new levels of server stability and performance which is so critical to our growing client base."
By leveraging its Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology, the CloudLinux OS allows VPS.NET to deliver increased performance and flexibility to its suite of secure cloud service offerings.
VPS.NET is a Virtual Private Server Cloud solution provider that works by allocating a partitioned portion of a physical server, then breaking its infrastructure into "nodes," or blocks of resources (376 MB of RAM, 10 GB storage, 250 GB transfer, and 600 Mhz CPU share) that can be pooled together in various ways to create custom virtual machines.
The CloudLinux OS Lightweight Virtual Environment is a kernel-level technology that limits the amount of resources (CPU, I/O, memory) available to a group of processes. With LVE, administrators control'the CPU and IO demands of individual tenants, so that a single site cannot slow or take down a whole server. While similar in approach to container virtualization, LVE is lightweight and transparent. The LVE level fair-share CPU scheduler makes sure that each account gets enough CPU resources to run efficiently.
