2/1/2012 – Do I need CloudLinux?

Posted by Jamison on 01 02 2012.

CloudLinuxOne of the most difficult parts of being a web host is in being responsive to sudden spikes due to a resource overload from one account on your server. These spikes appear like lightening out of nowhere, and if left unchecked can shut down your server and cause your clients to contact your support desk in great numbers and could overload that too. Most virtual environments are capable of handling small spikes of short duration. However, in today’s competitive environment, you cannot afford to risk having one single account shut down your entire server. This is why you need to look for answers before something goes wrong.
CloudLinux could possibly be the answer you are seeking! It was designed specifically with the needs of the web host in mind, and functions in the types of high-demand situations as were previously mentioned.
CloudLinux isolates each tenant on the server. What this means to you is that if one tenant creates a sudden resource demand on your server that could potentially exceed its capacity, CloudLinux isolates that resource spike to the tenant that it originates. This leaves the rest of the tenants on your server running as if nothing is happening. Which in reality, it is not happening on their part of the server.
Another feature that CloudLinux includes is called SecureLVE. This feature further isolates the tenants in that they are no longer able to see each other’s file systems. This not only improves privacy, it increases the security of your servers. Since hackers cannot see the adjacent file system, they are unable to formulate an attack.
CloudLinux is capable of operating on shared hosting environments or datacenters. This flexibility allows you to focus more on running your hosting environment than on monitoring for these unanticipated resource spikes. The only tenant these clients will affect will be their own space. Leaving you worry free!
