Customer opinions

Steven Greenberg United Launch Alliance

The support from all interactions with the TuxCare team at CloudLinux has been world-class, and does not go unnoticed

Peter Minogue IT Infrastructure, Information Technology Services Research School of Biology,The Australian National University

Here at RSB, we run bioinformatics servers which we cannot reboot frequently due to the nature of the research we do. From COVID research, Corals to next-gen genome work. These jobs can take weeks to months to run, and we never know when a short break in the jobs will occur, so can’t easily schedule a reboot. We then discovered kernel live patching; It needed to be simple, professional, affordable and handle a range of Linux systems including Ubuntu, Debian and Centos.KernelCare easily best met these needs, it gave us the peace of mind knowing our kernels were patched and protected. It was so easy to install and apply, and is now all automatic from that point on, and worked on all our flavours of Linux! We can now show this patching compliance to our Universities security team and keep the academics happy and productive at the same time,a win-win for us

Oscar Steenmann Managing Partner

Our reputation is built on commitment to keep our systems absolutely stable. Therefore, we spent a few months trying out KernelCare and testing it. KernelCare has not disappointed, it has proven itself to be reliable on all our AWS-based instances. It is also a lot cheaper than its competitors that allowed us to pass savings to our customers and remain competitive. Finally, looking at our time-keeping stats, we saw that we were spending on average 40 hours dealing with every kernel vulnerability. With KernelCare it takes just 15 minutes to patch the same amount of servers

Dean Suhr President

Quick easy install, automatic - it runs in the background, my server is always up to date ... no downtime!

Alex Wojtowicz Owner

We have been using KernelCare at our EC2 instances and web hosting servers for a long time. We do not run EC2 instances without KernelCare because we think that this is fundamental to bring security and reliability to our company and customers.

Andrzej Talarek Java Developer

We tested it, but to be honest, it wasn’t very exciting - it ‘just worked’.

Justin Jett Director of Audit and Compliance

KernelCare provides services that make server management easy, particularly with regard to security. Not needing to restart a server to get the latest kernel security updates is essential for business-critical applications that can't be taken down for patches. Additionally, their solutions allow some legacy applications to remain secure when alternative options are not available on the market or would be cost-prohibitive to implement.

Philip Rawlinson Technical Director

KernelCare keeps a vital part of our services updated without having downtime from reboots - with all the recent Intel exploits this has been even more valuable than ever. KernelCare also adds additional security to the Kernel making it seem even better value for money. I use it across all our server fleet and would recommend it to all Linux administrators.
