VPS.NET to Offer CloudLinux as One of its Standard Linux OS on All of its VPS Cloud Offerings

CloudLinux announces that VPS.NET will begin to offer CloudLinux as one of its standard Linux Operating Systems (OS) on all of its VPS cloud offerings. VPS.NET is an elastic cloud hosting provider offering instant scalable Virtual Private Server (VPS) solutions. VPS.NET selected CloudLinux because of the increased flexibility and control that the CloudLinux OS provides VPS.NET across its cloud computing architecture. By leveraging its Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology, the CloudLinux OS allows VPS.NET to deliver increased performance and flexibility to its suite of secure cloud service offerings.

With offices in the U.K. and the U.S., VPS.NET is a Virtual Private Server Cloud solution provider offering a flexible, innovative alternative to traditional hosting. VPS works by allocating a partitioned portion of a physical server, then breaks its infrastructure into "nodes", or blocks of resources (376MB of RAM, 10GB storage, 250GB transfer, and 600Mhz CPU share) that can be pooled together in various ways to create custom virtual machines.

The core technology behind CloudLinux OS is its Lightweight Virtual Environment a kernel-level technology that limits the amount of resources (CPU, I/O, memory) available to a group of processes. With LVE, administrators now have the tools to control the CPU and IO demands of individual tenants, so that a single site cannot slow or take down a whole server. While similar in approach to container virtualization, LVE is lightweight and transparent. The LVE level fair-share CPU scheduler makes sure that each account gets enough CPU resources to run efficiently. This CloudLinux OS technology offers service providers increased control as never realized before with traditional OS.
