Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Ksplice Inc. today officially launched its no-reboot patching
service for Linux servers.
"The Cambridge, Mass., start-up has about 35 customers and
several thousand servers using its paid Uptrack service, in which
security and maintenance patches are automatically applied to Linux
servers with minimal delay and no downtime, according to Chief
Operating Officer Waseem Daher.
""From a customer point of view, it's seamless," he said.
"Most customers are Web hosting companies such as DreamHost,
which has about a thousand Linux servers running Red Hat Enterprise
Linux (RHEL) and its close cousin, CentOS, Daher said."
