It’s our aim to make things easier and quicker for our customers, so over the past few weeks we’ve been rolling out CloudLinux OS into our web hosting environment. The new OS is designed to give customers increased control over their hosting.
CloudLinux is an operating system that uses lightweight virtualization to improve the performance and stability of the server. Using some of the latest technology found in cloud environments, it brings some massive benefits to a regular hosting ecosystem. The CloudLinux OS gives our web hosting, PaaS and SaaS providers the ability to manage resources available to their shared hosting customers in a reliable and efficient way.
In a shared web hosting environment, one web server is shared between users. Hosting companies benefit from enhanced security and stability within the Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) created by CloudLinux OS. System administrators can control CPU, memory and connections available to each tenant. The result is effectively preventing one site from slowing down or taking down an entire server, allowing hosters to substantially increase server density, bringing far greater efficiency to their business while delivering overall improved service to customers.
To celebrate the agreement, the two companies have a special offer for customers. Anyone who orders and installs a server with a CloudLinux license before the 1st March 2012 will receive the first two months of CloudLinux free of charge. CloudLinux OS licenses can be purchased directly on our site and existing customers can license their existing infrastructure through Leaseweb’s customer portal.
