Liquid Web rolls out KernelCare to 20K managed servers

Liquid Web is one of the most well-respected companies in web hosting. Their 30,000+ customers rely on Liquid Web’s deep technical expertise and a variety of high-performance servers and hosting products. Rolling out KernelCare to 20,000 of their managed servers only attests to their commitment to delivering most highly available servers.

Joe Oesterling, CTO at Liquid Web, said that they are committed to delivering the best solutions for their customers and, with that, they "have come to consider KernelCare as an essential service".

KernelCare delivers a super-fast release of security patches for new vulnerabilities. We are very excited to be able to not only serve our part in maintaining updated kernels for Liquid Web, but also do it in a seamless way without disrupting customer’s websites and applications.

I can’t hide my pride in our product and also in our entire kernel development team that works diligently on staying on top of all security lists, rolling out patches promptly.

Joe Oesterling also said that as the industry adopts KernelCare, it should eventually eliminate the concern of rebooting servers to apply security patches in most instances. According to him, the downtime that reboots cause is a disruption for customers, and nuisance for admins, that can be easily avoided with KernelCare. He added: "We’re moving closer to a time in which this type of disruption is no longer excusable".

I have to agree.

Launched 2 years ago, KernelCare keeps Linux servers secure with all of the latest kernel patches automatically applied to the running kernel without downtime. It supports most popular Linux distributions including CentOS/RHEL/CloudLinux 5, 6 and 7, Xen4CentOS, OpenVZ and Virtuozzo, Debian 6, 7 and 8, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and 16.04 LTS, and Proxmox VE 3.x and 4.x.

Try KernelCare free for 30 days and see how simple it is to deliver higher uptime to your customers and have more secure servers.
