LeaseWeb enhances virtual environment with CloudLinux
LeaseWeb, one of the largest hosting providers in Europe, today announces its partnership with web hosting software company CloudLinux to enable increased control for all customers through the CloudLinux OS.
The CloudLinux OS gives LeaseWeb’s resellers (including web hosting providers PaaS and SaaS providers) the ability to manage resources available to their shared hosting customers in a reliable and efficient environment. Hosting companies benefit from enhanced security and stability within the Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) created by CloudLinux OS. That enables system administrators to 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.
"The integration of the CloudLinux OS into LeaseWeb’s hosting environment gives shared hosters ready access to deliver an enhanced, secure and stable experience to their customers," said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux CEO. “We are excited to be able to offer this service to LeaseWeb and look forward to working with the company in rolling this out to their global customer base.”
Rolph Haspers, Operations Director at LeaseWeb, added: “Our resellers expect that they get access to all building blocks to deploy a robust platform to offer services to their end-customers. With this partnership, LeaseWeb is extending its industry leadership in providing the broadest choice of x86-based operating systems to their resellers.”
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 via LeaseWeb’s website. Existing customers can license their existing infrastructure through LeaseWeb’s customer portal.
