CloudLinux’s KernelCare gives customers automated and rebootless Linux kernel security updates

CloudLinux today announced that KernelCare is now available to customers of VMware Cloud™ on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. KernelCare provides Linux kernel security updates without rebooting and without downtime for customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.

For sysadmins who manage a large number of Linux servers, KernelCare is a security remediation product that provides live security kernel updates. Unlike standard security patches which require regular reboots, KernelCare enables automated (multiplatform) security kernel updates with zero downtime (easy to deploy).

“We have so many good customers using KernelCare with VMWare today, and given our progression through advanced technology partner tiers with AWS, it made perfect sense for us to formally validate KernelCare on VMWare for AWS Cloud,” said Jim Jackson, President & CRO. “We hope this will help provide the VMWare user community with awareness and confidence that they can safely deploy the best live Linux kernel vulnerability patching technology in the industry to secure their infrastructures on VMWare.”
VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premises in a VMware vSphere® environment, it will easily support VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS service and enable customers to realize new capabilities.

“VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers a seamlessly-integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS,” said Kristen Edwards, director, Technology Alliance Partner Program, VMware. “Solutions such as KernelCare enable IT teams to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We’re excited to work with partners such as CloudLinux to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value.”
