Directi, Leading Web Services Company based in India, Partners with Cloud Linux Inc.

Press release from: Cloudlinux

Will deploy CloudLinux across its entire shared hosting infrastructure


Ann Arbor, MI, September 23, 2010 – Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative

software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service

providers, announces today that Directi, a leading, multi-national,

Internet products company that builds innovative, mass-market, Web 2.0

products and services used by millions of users worldwide, will begin

to use CloudLinux across its shared hosting infrastructure. Directi

provides hosting services across several brands including

LogicBoxes.com and ResellerClub.com and has multiple offices in India

as well as China, UAE and Australia. They selected CloudLinux for its

new innovative Lightweight Virtual Environment™ (LVE) technology that

will allow Directi to deliver improved performance, stability and

reliability to its hosting customers.

Directi was established in 1998 and now has over 25 Internet software

products for their global audience. With over a million customers and

50,000 channel partners, in 2008 Deloitte and Touche ranked it amongst

the fastest growing tech companies.

“CloudLinux is the perfect addition to our shared hosting

infrastructure since it can help us deliver improved reliability and

stability to our customers,” said Directi Founder and CEO Bhavin

Turakhia. “CloudLinux gives us full control over our shared hosted

environment and adds new levels of server stability, security and

performance which is critical to manage our fast growing customer

base.”

Some of the benefits Directl customers will receive with CloudLinux

are:

Increased uptime since no one account can slow down or take down an

entire shared server
Increased server stability and less downtime
Complete, 24/7 support
Compatibility with all major control panels for easy management

“We are pleased to partner with Directi and help them deliver the

benefits of increased stability and reliability to their customers,”

states Igor Seletskiy, Cloud Linux Inc.’s Founder and CEO. “The

technology is designed to eliminate the risks of unstable servers that

can undermine businesses’ operations and profitability. Fast growing

hosting providers like Directi can take direct advantage of these

great benefits.”

CloudLinux’s core technology is Lightweight Virtual Environment™ a

kernel-level technology that limits the amount of resources (CPU, I/O,

memory) available to a group of processes. While similar to container

type virtualization technology, LVE is completely transparent and

lightweight. Once installed, the LVE works transparently to manage

resources that the hosting provider sets for the accounts on a server.

It controls the CPU resources to ensure that each account on a shared

server is allocated enough resources to run efficiently without

jeopardizing the other tenants on that server, making the server more

stable and delivering better performance.

CloudLinux is priced to support all types of hosting providers and is

available at a tiered retail monthly price based on the number of

servers under management. The CloudLinux Partner Program offers

discounts and more competitive pricing and a support model designed to

meet the specific requirements of hosting companies as well as an

opportunity to leverage the CloudLinux brand.
