CloudLinux runs on 5,000 worldwide servers.

The CloudLinux operating system (OS), used specifically for shared hosting, announced that it is currently running worldwide on 5,000 servers. For some, this figure might seem small but it actually highlights a 100% boost in usage in only six months. The increase is especially due to the fact that CloudLinux assures an unparalleled level of efficiency currently available in shared hosting.

This efficiency is due to the fact that the operating system isolates every user account with a new technology, known as Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE). This allows the administrators to limit the memory, CPU, and concurrent connections that are available to server tenants. The LVE technology prohibits the so-called “bad neighbor effect,” which can be a negative side-effect of a shared web hosting environment.

The genius of CloudLinux, however, is the solution it has found to the ever present shared-server stability issue. With CloudLinux, users can enjoy the best possible shared hosting setup. As a consequence of this amazing strategy, CloudLinux can see an exponential growth in its user base.

Right now, CloudLinux provides support for data centers, shared hosting customers, and many other platforms. Currently, more and more web hosting partners are adding this OS to dedicated and VPS servers.

MySQL Governor is a new feature included in CloudLinux, which provides control over different MySQL resources that are available to numerous end users. Additionally, CloudLinux is about to release a new service, CageFS, which ensures the privacy of different data. Today, CloudLinux offers regular updates and 24/7 professional support.
