We are happy to announce KernelCare live vulnerability patching is now available for all cloud compute plans! KernelCare allows you to patch your computes kernel on the fly without requiring a reboot, eliminating downtime and keeping your compute even more secure!
KernelCare is a CloudLinux product, the developers of the operating system we use on our shared and reseller hosting environments. By leveraging their advanced expertise from developing their Linux operating system they have created KernelCare to further improve the reliability and uptime of their OS. As a hosting provider managing an entire fleet of servers KernelCare has proven invaluable due to the amount of time, frustration, and potential outages we’ve saved not having to reboot every server to apply critical kernel level patches for vulnerabilities.
As a cloud compute customer you can now enjoy those same benefits! At just $2.95/mo, adding KernelCare to your compute is a great way to not only enhance the compute security but also ensure sustained uptime and service accessibility. Often times compute clients are unaware of vulnerabilities that may impact their systems as they are not experienced sysadmins or security experts. Utilizing KernelCare solves this problem as the product will automatically handle these updates for you. Once you start using the product you likely will never notice it’s keeping you safe, but you can sleep easier knowing you’ll be automatically patched to secure you from any new vulnerabilities.
