Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
[ Thanks to The
VAR Guy for this link. ]
"A few days ago, The VAR Guy openly wondered how
CloudLinux OS — a new Linux distribution designed for hosting
providers — hopes to stand out in a market dominated by Red
Hat, Novell and several other emerging options. Today, The VAR Guy
got some answers from Igor Seletskiy, founder and CEO of Cloud
Linux Inc. Here’s what he had to say.
"During a meeting at Parallels Summit, Seletskiy described how
CloudLinux OS is designed with multi-tenant users in mind.
“In shared environments, each new customer adds more risk on
the server,” Seletskiy notes. If one application demands too
many CPU resources, he notes, the other customers on the same
server can suffer from degrading performance."
