Control Panel Provider Hosting Controller Now Supports CloudLinux

September 28, 2010 by  

Hosting ServicesAnn Arbor, MI – Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, today announces that Hosting Controller will include CloudLinux in their control panel offerings HC8 and HCnix. As one of the leading web server control panels, Hosting Controller offers web hosting control panel products that have over ten years of software development and are tailored to the web hosting market. Hosting Controller chose to include CloudLinux because of its Lightweight Virtual Environment™ or LVE technology that is designed specifically for hosting service providers to provide greater density and stability in shared hosting and multi-tenant environments.

Hosting Controller also selected CloudLinux because of the added security it can provide to its hosting customers through the innovative SecureLVE™ feature. SecureLVE is based on LVE and provides a virtualized file system, which separates each user on the server into its own environment, preventing one user from seeing any other users on the server. This new server security makes it difficult for hackers to attack, deface, or steal data from the shared web server.

“We are very excited that Hosting Controller will make CloudLinux available in both its HC8 and HCnix offerings to provide their customers with the most innovative hosting control panel experience,” states Cloud Linux Inc. Founder and CEO Igor Seletskiy. “CloudLinux will allow administrators using Hosting Controller to control usage of the resources on a server at the tenant or application level and leverage SecureLVE which virtualizes a filesystem to limit the available applications, devices, and what a user can see in the file system and make it harder for an attacker to penetrate the server.”

Hosting Controller has two premiere products in its control panel offering. Hosting Controller 8 is a complete web hosting automation control panel that is designed for web hosts to experience infinite hosting possibilities in cluster environment & lower their operational costs. It enables web-hosting companies to manage all their servers both Windows & Linux through a centralized interface. HCnix is a Linux based web hosting automation control panel that facilitates web hosts to manage multiple Web, Mail, Database and DNS servers on different GNU/Linux flavors in a cluster through single interface. HCnix is specifically designed for a distributed server environment as an independent control panel.

“Supporting CloudLinux in our products is a big win for our customers,” states Babar Zaman, Hosting Controller’s VP of Business Development. “We have always been a leading innovator to the hosting community and supporting CloudLinux is another way we deliver the cutting edge latest technology to our users.”

What makes CloudLinux so attractive to hosting providers is its core technology Lightweight Virtual Environment™, a kernel-level technology that limits the amount of resources (CPU, I/O, memory) available to a group of processes. With LVE, administrators have the tools to control the CPU 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. This innovative CloudLinux technology offers service providers increased control as never realized before with traditional OS.

CloudLinux provides benefits to Hosting Controller users including:
– Innovative lightweight and transparent LVE technology that increases server stability and performance
– Decreased downtime
– Ability to allocate resources to individual server tenants efficiently
– Increased control over traditional OS
– Complete, 24/7 support
– Easy deployment and management
