Cloud Linux has announced a partnership with Canadian Web Hosting, reflecting the global nature of Cloud Computing as Cloud Expo Europe approaches in Prague June 21-22. Through this partnership, Canadian Web Hosting will integrate CloudLinux as one of its standard Linux Operating Systems (OS) for its customers. CloudLinux was selected because of its new Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology that will help Canadian Web Hosting deliver enhanced hosting capabilities including increased control, stability and flexibility to its customer base, the companies say.
CloudLinux's LVE technology limits the amount of resources (CPU, I/O, memory) available to a group of processes. It is described as a transparent and lightweight kernel-level technology similar to container type virtualization. Giving the hosting service provider the ability to control resources on the server, CloudLinux achieves what other operating systems cannot. Once installed, the LVE works transparently to manage resources that the hosting provider sets for the accounts on a server.
This innovation gives technical engineers command line control to manage the CPU and IO and ensure that each account on a shared server is allocated enough resources to run efficiently without jeopardizing the other tenants on that server.
"Canadian Web Hosting is committed to bringing the most innovative and emerging technologies to our customers and CloudLinux is at the forefront of hosting innovation - giving hosting service providers more control, flexibility and agility," said Tony Chu, Canadian Web Hosting CEO. "Our strategy has been to expand our services to deliver additional scalability and value to our customers; integrating CloudLinux into our offerings will allow us to do just that."
A Rock Star Faculty, Top Keynotes, Sessions, and Top Delegates!
The growth and success of Cloud Computing will be on display at the upcoming Cloud Expo conferences and exhibitions in Prague June 21-22 and Santa Clara November 1-4.
The recent Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York City was the largest Cloud Computing conference ever produced, more sponsors, exhibitors and delegates than all other Cloud events of the year combined!
The four-day Santa Clara event will attract more than 6,000 delegates from 48 countries and over 200 sponsors and exhibitors on a 120,000 sq ft show floor, larger than Cloud Expo 2010 East, New York City event!
All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented in the6th and 7th International Cloud Expo - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications, and they'll all be here to speak, sponsor, exhibit and network.
"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali , founder and chairman of SYS-CON Events, Inc. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates per year will be attending Cloud Expo."
Cloud Expo 2010 Europe and Cloud Expo 2010 West "show prospectus" have shipped. Sponsorship, exhibit, and keynote opportunities can be obtained from Carmen Gonzalez by email at events (at) sys-con.com, or by phone 201 802 3021.
