PALO ALTO, CA – CloudLinux, the maker of the leading operating system for hosting providers, announced today the beta release of the CloudLinux OS Reseller Limits feature, which allows resellers to manage end-user resource usage. Now hosting providers can set limits for the amount of resources each reseller can operate. It gives tools to the resellers to control the resources each end-user has. These resources include CPU, IO, memory, number of processes, and concurrent connections per each end-user.

The CloudLinux OS proprietary Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology prevents users from bringing down the server by allowing hosts to set up individual resource limits. This ensures that users can never use more resources than was allocated to them, and now the ability to set limits has been extended to the resellers for their end-users.


“CloudLinux pioneered end-user limits seven years ago, yet, the ability to limit resellers was still out of reach for hosters,” said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux chief executive officer and founder. “Over the past eighteen months, our team has been working actively on this highly anticipated feature and we are very excited to announce its beta.”

The Reseller Limits feature within the LVE Manager will ensure the stability and security of servers and will allow hosting providers to offer more valuable services to their resellers. It will also empower resellers to expand their offering to their end-users, adjust their pricing models, and optimize space usage.

HOUSTON, TX – cPanel technology partner CloudLinux, the maker of the leading OS for hosting providers, today announced that they will be extending the KernelCare Symlink Protection Patchset for CentOS 6 & 7 to all server administrators for free, without requiring a KernelCare license.

“Symlink race attacks are one of the most costly and devastating attacks in web hosting, and protecting web hosting providers against them has been a goal of ours for many years,” said Ken Power, Vice President of Product Development at cPanel, Inc. “Helping CloudLinux provide this patch set to more servers brings us closer to a safer, more secure internet for all.”


“KernelCare was developed to protect against various types of security threats, without the need to reboot servers, and we’ve been discussing with the cPanel team ways to help with hardening of their customers’ kernels,” said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux chief executive officer. “We just released this patchset for CentOS 6 and 7 to protect users, including the cPanel customers, and help defend their shared hosting servers against symlink attacks.”

Palo Alto CA – Leading OS developer CloudLinux announced today that it has published a toolset for livepathing of user space software to GitHub. The toolset is released under the GPL2 license and allows software developers to develop and apply patches to their running software without the need to restart it. Similar to commercially available KernelCare service, which livepatches kernels for various Linux distributions, the LibCare toolset allows developers to live patch any software, as long as the source code of the software is available. This ensures that business-critical software with nontrivial update processes doesn’t require users to restart during an update. Perfect application of this technology is within databases, Web servers, libraries, virtualization technologies such as QEMU, and more.

“We often see vulnerabilities in QEMU or GLIBC that are not cured by a simple update and instead require a reboot or a substantial amount of work to make sure everything is updated and secure”, said Igor Seletskiy, chief executive officer at CloudLinux. “With LibCare, software developers can offer live user space patching to avoid downtime and security risks. There is nothing like that available on the market as open source, and we are excited to be able to offer this to software developers to make their applications more secure and more reliable for customers.”

The LibCare source code is available on GitHub at https://github.com/cloudlinux/libcare.
