Toronto, Canada and Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 22, 2010
Cartika Inc., a leading provider of Web hosting services, announced it has adopted Ksplice Uptrack's "rebootless" and automated Linux update technology, bringing its customers a new class of best-of-breed dedicated and virtual server offerings.
Starting this month, Ksplice Uptrack will be included with every one of Cartika's dedicated and virtual servers at no additional cost. "Adopting Ksplice was an easy decision," said Andrew Rouchotas, CEO of Cartika. "We're able to save on the high costs of updating, patching and keeping servers secure, while our customers are getting top-notch security without compromising uptime," he said.
"Ksplice Uptrack revolutionizes server availability and security," said Waseem Daher, Ksplice's chief operating officer. "We're thrilled to support Cartika's dedication to its Linux hosting customers." Ksplice's technology allows IT administrators to keep Linux servers up-to-date and secure without the disruption and downtime of rebooting.
In 2009, major Linux vendors asked their customers to install a kernel update more than once per month. Before Uptrack, each occasion required an administrator to schedule downtime to apply the update. Until a system can be updated, it remains vulnerable to security flaws. By seamlessly and automatically installing kernel updates, Uptrack dramatically reduces the overhead of system administration, dramatically boosting uptime and security.
