A2 Hosting Launches CloudLinux OS on Web Hosting Plans


Ann Arbor, MI – June 24, 2011 – Linux hosting company A2 Hosting has announced that they are now offering CloudLinux™ on each of their Web Hosting packages. CloudLinux™ is the only commercial-supported server operating system which is fully CentOS and RHEL compatible and designed for shared hosting. CloudLinux has made a name for itself by increasing reliability by effectively isolating Web Hosting accounts from one another.

CloudLinux™ was designed from the start to prevent a single resource-hogging Web Hosting account from crashing or even slowing down a server. Instead, it allows sysadmins to finely adjust the resources available to an account so that a resource spike effects only that account’s web site. CloudLinux™ Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) effectively cages each user, allowing precise control over the resources available while effectively isolating one account from another. If a site hosted at A2 Hosting continues to experience a resource spike, customers can easily upgrade their account to a Managed VPS Hosting package for a seamless transition.

A2 Hosting’s Marketing Manager, Brad Litwin, commented on their brand new CloudLinux™ Web Hosting offering: “We take great pride in our 99.9% uptime guarantee. CloudLinux™ has helped us to further enhance our reliability. The levels of innovation that CloudLinux and A2 Hosting offer clearly parallel one another. I see zero irony in the fact that both of our companies are headquartered in Ann Arbor, a city that has been heralded as a technological hub.”

“It’s always been clear to us that A2 Hosting works hard to maintain their stellar reputation as a reliable, high-quality hosting provider,” said Marv Steigman, Vice President of Marketing for CloudLinux. "The fact that A2 Hosting is now offering our solution serves to reinforce their commitment to offering the best possible experience for their customers. We have had a wonderful relationship and are excited to continue working with them in the future.
