We’ve Gone Rebootless

Ksplice

Thanks to our team (and the ladies and gents at Ksplice) we’ve deployed Ksplice on our shared hosting servers and will include it for free on our new line of dedicated servers coming later this week!

What is Ksplice?
Ksplice gives us the ability to apply important kernel security updates released by CentOS/Red Hat Linux without having to reboot the server.

What’s the big deal?
Ksplice provides increased server up-time and faster security updates. The speed of deployment for security patches is much more efficient since we don’t have to reboot the server.

One of our systems administrators, Cameron Christensen said, “Ksplice has the obvious benefits of increased uptime but it also means that our team of Sys. Admins can spend more time focused on monitoring and optimizing these servers for our clients.”

We understand how critical up-time is to you and we are very excited to bring you this added benefit.
