CloudLinux Partners with Parallels to Improve Stability of Hosting Servers

CloudLinux OS now available through both Parallels Plesk Panel and Parallels Business Automation Hosting Solutions

CloudLinux, Inc., developers of the commercially supported Linux server operating system made specifically for shared hosting, has announced a partnership with Parallels, the hosting and cloud services enablement leader. CloudLinux OS, which will now be accessible directly from Parallels Plesk Panel and Parallels Business Automation solutions, offers web hosting companies the ability to manage resources available to their shared hosting customers.

Parallels' customers can now purchase CloudLinux OS licenses directly from Parallels. This agreement is in addition to the existing integration of CloudLinux OS with Parallels Business Automation, currently used by many larger web hosting companies. CloudLinux is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS, enabling easy conversion -- typically in less than 10 minutes.

"The combination of our integration with Parallels Plesk Panel, and the ability to purchase CloudLinux OS directly from Parallels, will help accelerate our adoption," said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux CEO. "We recently surpassed 5,000 production servers running CloudLinux OS as hosting companies continue to realize the benefits of enhanced security and stability that the CloudLinuxOS offers shared hosting companies."

"We are seeing an increasing number of our cloud service provider partners using CloudLinux OS along with Parallels Plesk Panel and Parallels Automation," said Bryan Goode, vice president, general manager Marketplace at Parallels. "This new alliance benefits our partners by making it even easier for them to purchase, deploy and manage CloudLinux."

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.

Parallels' partners can add CloudLinux through the Parallels Key Administrator portal, while others can get more information on CloudLinux through the Parallels Online Store.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
