(WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW) — Hosting software developer CloudLinux , which offers a commercially-supported Linux distribution designed around the needs of the shared hosting industry, announced on Tuesday that it has launched its Preferred Partner Program, naming cloud hosting provider VPS.net the first hosting company to join.
In October, hosting software developer Parallels announced that it would be distributing licenses for the CloudLinux OS , another distribution deal, but perhaps a prelude to the more formalized partner program launched this week.
VPS.net is part of the UK2 Group of hosting businesses, which was acquired by private equity firm LDC in April of this year . The VPS.net platform is a flexible virtualized hosting system that was ultimately spun off to create the OnApp cloud platform . The company is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and operates data centers around the world, according to the announcement. It offers the CloudLinux operating system to all its customers (presumably those running shared hosting operations on VPS.net virtual machines).

As the first Preferred Partner, VPS.net will engage in joint sales and marketing efforts with CloudLinux, and will have special access to technical resources. It will also host “CloudLinux repositories,” which will enable customers to quickly and reliably update their CloudLinux software.
“The combination of the CloudLinux OS with service from VPS.net gives shared hosters ready access to deliver to their customers,” says Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux CEO, quoted in the press release. “The enhanced security and stability offered by CloudLinux OS provides an unmatched experience for shared hosting customers and is proven on more than 5,000 production servers running CloudLinux OS.”
The CloudLinux OS creates a “lightweight virtual environment” for each shared hosting user account, enabling administrators to limit CPU, memory and concurrent connections for each customers, eliminating the “bad neighbor effect” that a single tenant that uses an excessive amount of resources can have on hosting customers sharing the same server.
CloudLinux says the platform lets hosting providers greatly increase the density and efficiency of their services.
According to the CloudLinux website , the partner program offers marketing support, API integration and unlimited access to 24-hours support, among other things. The three-tiered program offers discounted pricing on CloudLinux.
While the partner-focused pages on the comapny’s website don’t appear to be quite finished at the moment, it seems like CloudLinux is now accepting applications for participation in the new program.
