To talk a little bit about VEXXHOST, it was established in 2006, VEXXHOST initially opened its virtual doors as a web hosting provider. Offering services from shared hosting to VPS, VEXXHOST grew quickly to become a leader in the web hosting industry. The advancement of cloud technologies allowed VEXXHOST to provide more innovative options such as cloud hosting. The positive response to the leap to cloud-based hosting encouraged VEXXHOST to invest further in a cloud-based solution. In 2011, VEXXHOST adopted OpenStack software for its infrastructure. VEXXHOST has been actively using and contributing to OpenStack since it’s 2nd ever release, Bexar. Currently, VEXXHOST offers OpenStack® based infrastructure which includes Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud.
After a great deal of rigorous testing in our server development labs with countless hardware and software combinations, we are proud to finally bring a new solid cutting-edge technology for our clients, Ksplice. Servers, meet Ksplice. Ksplice, meet Servers. And Clients? Forget about Downtime!
Ksplice is one of the latest innovations in server technologies. It allows us to update and patch important security updates on our servers without rebooting the server, therefore, no downtime at all.
Ksplice uses some magic to update the kernel while it’s running by making modifications to parts of it that require updating and dynamically reloading them.
