rackAID announced today that it is putting an end to server reboots. The managed service provider will be including Ksplice with all server management offerings. Ksplice Uptrack lets you apply important operating system updates without rebooting.

“Since kernel updates require reboots, we have to schedule the reboots with our clients. This is a time consuming process. With Ksplice, we can quickly roll out security updates without reboots. This saves us a tremendous amount of time and our clients enjoy improved uptime,” said rackAID CEO, Jeff Huckaby.

Ksplice's technology allows IT administrators to keep Linux servers up-to-date and secure without the disruption and downtime of rebooting.

"Ksplice Uptrack brings servers to a whole new level of availability and security," said Waseem Daher, Ksplice's chief operating officer. "We're delighted to work with rackAID to serve their clients better."

rackAID’s Jeff Huckaby said Ksplice will be added to all server management and managed hosting plans at no additional cost. “Yes, this is a free upgrade. Our goal is to make IT simpler for small businesses. Eliminating reboots due to kernel updates furthers this goal so we did not want cost to stand in the way of going rebootless.”

rackAID offers server management, security and backup services on a subscription basis with terms as short as one month. They also provide managed hosting, consulting and IT support on a per-case basis.

Mr. Huckaby said that rackAID expects to further expand their service offerings later this year with more server backup locations, new database support solutions and managed virtualization solutions. He will be speaking later this month at HostingCon, the primary hosting industry conference.
