Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, announces today that PacificHost has revealed a 23% increase in server density on their shared servers by introducing CloudLinux OS. The added stability features from CloudLinux have helped them achieve their goals to offer a secure and reliable hosting services to their customers.

Barely a month after PacificHost’s crucial decision to shift platform and utilize the CloudLinux OS in all its shared and reseller servers, there has already been a considerable increase in performance and reliability. This includes an 11% decrease in support volume due to resource abuse and a 12% increase in productivity in tracking down resource abuse issues. CloudLinux’s unique LVE technology allows PacificHost to split each customer into their own virtual container and assign resources to each user, while also ensuring that they only use those allotted resources. 

CloudLinux is an OS that is designed to isolate users in a shared web hosting environment, allowing for greater efficiency. By creating a virtual environment for each hosting account, CloudLinux averts excessive use of all server resources by any particular user, at any given time. This exclusive isolation technology prevents any individual from slowing down the server – or in severe cases, even taking the entire server offline. This is a common problem for other hosting providers that haven’t yet discovered the benefits of using CloudLinux OS.

“PacificHost utilizes CloudLinux as the foundation for our shared hosting. We always ensure that all our servers are optimized and secured from the get-go but CloudLinux helps provide that extra bit of performance and reliability we are known for,” said Thomas Perry, PacificHost President and CEO. He added, “CloudLinux never fails to impress us with its ability to divide system resources among many customers and prevent slowdowns caused by abusive users. We save approximately $850 per month when all factors are considered which makes CloudLinux well worth it.”
