Eleven2 Implements Ksplice Uptrack Technology and Goes Rebootless

September 23, 2010 by  

Hosting ServicesHOUSTON, TX – Eleven2, a global Web Hosting Company, announced today that it has adopted Ksplice Uptrack, an amazing technology that enables 100% of the important kernel security upgrades released by Linux to be installed without having the need to reboot. Ksplice Uptrack will immediately be implemented on all of the company’s shared and reseller servers at no additional cost.

“When concerning our customers security and availability, adding Ksplice Uptrack to our arsenal of great technology was a no-brainer,” commented Rodney Giles, CEO and founder of Eleven2. Mr. Giles continued, “With the addition of Ksplice Uplink, we are able to save on the cost of constantly maintaining our servers while providing the top of the line security, and to top it all off our customers gain even more uptime.”


In the past, all major Linux vendors would need to install a kernel update more than once a month. Before the innovational technology of Ksplice Uplink, this process involved an administrator who had to schedule downtime for the provisional servers before the update could be applied, and until the system is updated it is susceptible to security flaws.

Reboots take several minutes to perform, which causes downtime and disrupts the normal operation of the system, but with Ksplice Uplink’s rebootless technology, all of the important kernel upgrades are converted into rebootless packages that can easily be installed with no need to reboot at all.

“We are excited that with our newly acquired technology we can eliminated a major percent of our reboots and bring our system to a higher level of security and availability,” stated Mr. Giles from Eleven2. Ksplice Uplink is free of charge to all Eleven2 shared and reseller customers, and is also available to all virtual and dedicated clients at an additional cost.
