Endurance partners with CloudLinux for its rebootless and automated kernel update service KernelCare to help keep servers secure and limit interruptions

BURLINGTON, Mass. and PALO ALTO, Calif., March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Endurance International Group (NASDAQ: EIGI), a leading provider of cloud-based platform solutions, and CloudLinux, the leading OS developer for web hosting, today announced it is deploying CloudLinux's rebootless update service KernelCare on shared and dedicated web servers for the Endurance family of brands. Endurance has implemented KernelCare on servers for Endurance brands including HostGator and Bluehost, among others.

"Our investment in KernelCare demonstrates our continued commitment to improving the customer experience across all brands," said Ron LaSalvia, President, Hosting Brands, at Endurance. "With KernelCare, maintenance windows can now be virtually eliminated, improving the reliability of our infrastructure and keeping our customers happy."

KernelCare keeps Linux servers secure with all the latest kernel patches automatically applied to the running kernel without downtime. It helps to ensure websites are on and available for customers and to eliminate interruption to critical applications, databases, and business processes.

"We are excited that one of the internet's largest web hosting providers has recognized that reboots should no longer be the norm, and after vigorous testing of KernelCare in early 2016, they are now implementing it across many of their shared and dedicated servers," said Igor Seletskiy, Founder and CEO at CloudLinux. "Being able to deliver security updates seamlessly, without disrupting customer websites, is valued by Endurance and validated the whole reason we created KernelCare – to ensure uninterrupted updates and continuous security of Linux servers."

KernelCare delivers virtually no performance impact during updates. Launched 3 years ago, it supports most popular Linux distributions including CentOS/RHEL/CloudLinux 5, 6 and 7, Xen4CentOS, OpenVZ & Virtuozzo, Debian 6, 7 and 8, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and 16.04 LTS, Proxmox VE 3.x & 4.x, and others.
