It may not be a problem if you only have 2 or 3 machines, but when it comes to 10+ hosts, the process can take at least several hours (depending on the actual load on each node and network conditions). QEMUCare Live Patching applies security updates to running VMs and eliminates the need for a live migration process.
*But if you don’t mind the workload, enjoy TuxCare comprehensive guide to QEMU patching.
This is on top of keeping the infrastructure safe from vulnerabilities by making sure your developers follow best security practices when interacting with your systems.
QEMUCare will let you shift your focus from patching and securing the virtualisation platform to other areas, knowing that the hosts will no longer be at risk from known exploits.
With QEMUCare, the entire operation is turned into a one-time setup of the agent.
Therefore no negative impact on system availability & no customer complaints.
This means that your time can be used for better things like backups or monitoring.
Affordably priced in principle, TuxCare also provides volume discounts to large enterprise Linux infrastructures.
