, an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, announces today that Parallels has included CloudLinux in its newly released version of Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5 control panel. Parallels
, a cloud enablement leader, has included CloudLinux as one of the Linux OS options in its newly released Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5
, and is available for all 9.X versions of the product. Parallels chose to include CloudLinux because of its Lightweight Virtual Environment™
or LVE technology that is designed specifically for hosting service providers to provide greater density and stability in shared hosting and multi-tenant environments. Parallels is also impressed with the impact CloudLinux has made on the hosting market since its launch in February 2010.
"It makes sense for us to include CloudLinux as one of the native operating systems in our Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5 product because it gives our customers the significant advantages of improved performance and stability so they can deliver better services to their small business customers," said Jack Zubarev, President at Parallels. "Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5 is the most feature-rich control panel for shared hosting and, with the addition of CloudLinux, supports the fast industry adoption we are seeing for this product."
According to Parallels, the Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5 is the number one control panel in the world with thousands of applications that deliver the easiest, most profitable and most complete service for virtual, dedicated, and shared hosting providers.
"LVE is a great addition to the Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5 features," states Igor Seletskiy, CEO and Founder of CloudLinux. "CloudLinux can help Parallels deliver the fully integrated and professional experience their customers have come to expect from a major virtualization and cloud computing leader."
What makes CloudLinux so attractive to hosting providers is its core technology Lightweight Virtual Environment™ which is a kernel-level technology that limits the amount of resources (CPU, I/O, memory) available to a group of processes. With LVE, administrators have the tools to control the CPU and IO demands of individual tenants, so that a single site cannot slow or take down a whole server. While similar in approach to container virtualization, LVE is lightweight and transparent. The LVE level fair-share CPU scheduler makes sure that each account gets enough CPU resources to run efficiently. This innovative CloudLinux OS technology offers service providers increased control as never realized before with traditional OS.
CloudLinux OS provides additional benefits to Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5 users including:
- Innovative lightweight and transparent LVE technology that increases server stability and performance
- Decreased downtime
- Ability to allocate resources to individual server tenants efficiently
- Increased control over traditional OS
- Complete, 24/7 support
- Compatibility with the major control panel for easy management and deployment
