Cloud Linux Named "Best Start-Up" In 2010 For The Cloud Computing World Series

Award recognizes LVE innovation that can “crash proof” servers in shared hosting environments  

Princeton, NJ, July 8, 2010 – Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, is the recipient of the 2010 Best Start-Up Award by the The Cloud Computing World Forum in the “World Series” Innovation competition. Cloud Linux received the award for its new innovation on how to “crash proof” servers as hosting providers migrate to a cloud based services model.  

CloudLinux was launched in early 2010 and is a new commercially supported operating system proven to increase server density, stability and performance, helping customers realize reduced operating costs and increased profitability.  Cloud Linux invented the Lightweight Virtual Environment™ a kernel-level technology that isolates specific hardware resources in a lightweight environment and prevents one tenant on a shared server from affecting others – especially due to a sudden peak load from a single tenant. The technology is designed to eliminate the risks of unstable servers that can undermine businesses’ operations and profitability.  

"Seamless migration to a cloud based business model requires a solid infrastructure that can be managed to be made rock solid reliable while optimizing infrastructure assets,” states Igor Seletskiy, CEO and Founder of Cloud Linux Inc.  "We built CloudLinux to protect customers from outages often caused because of a lack of control over individual tenants. The last six months have been a great success for us - signing on many partners, including one of the largest shared hosting companies, UK2Group. This award is a rewarding validation of the work we are doing and the team is greatly honored to be receiving the award.” CloudLinux has signed on eighteen datacenter partners, and is installed on more then five hundred servers. It is compatible with all major hosting control panels, including Plesk, cPanel, ISPManager and InterWorx control panel products, as well as with Apache and LiteSpeed web servers. It is also used as a base for Parallels next generation H2E hosting platform. The company’s vision is to design a simple and elegant solution that helps companies improve server security, efficiency, density and performance as they migrate to Cloud-based services.  

The Cloud Computing World Forum is sponsoring the Cloud Computing World Series Awards. Winners of the Cloud Computing World Series Awards were announced on June 29th at an award ceremony held at the Olympia Conference Center in London.
