SINGLEHOP TO OFFER CLOUDLINUX OS AS PART OF ITS CASCADE CLOUD PLATFORM AND DEDICATED SERVER OFFERINGS

Increasing Density of Shared Servers and Improving Stability

Princeton, NJ, April 28, 2010 - CloudLinux Inc., an innovative softwarecompany dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers,announces today that SingleHop, a leading dedicated server and managedweb-hosting provider, has begun to offer CloudLinux as one of itsstandard Linux Operating Systems, and as part of its new Cascade hostingsystem. SingleHop selected CloudLinux for a number of reasons includingthe Lightweight Virtual Environment™ (LVE) technology that increasesdensity and stability when used in a dedicated server environments.

Cascade is SingleHop's entry into cloud hosting services and products,and CloudLinux is the very first offering that the company is selling inthe Cascade line-up. According to SingleHop, the current integration ofcloud computing and dedicated hosting is a nascent, cumbersome, andgenerally expensive technology- all reasons that permeate the lowadoption rates from dedicated server users.

"We are committed to finding better ways to manage small businessweb hosting services and solutions for our clients, and the resourcecontrols that CloudLinux provides our customers is exactly in line withour philosophy." The core technology behind CloudLinux OS is itsLightweight Virtual Environment™ a kernel-level technology that limitsthe amount of resources (CPU, I/O, memory) available to a group ofprocesses. With LVE, administrators now have the tools to control theCPU and IO demands of individual tenants, so that a single site cannotslow or take down a whole server. "SingleHop is highly focused onproviding reliable and cost-effective services, and we are proud thatCloudLinux OS will help them deliver on those commitments," states IgorSeletskiy, CEO and Founder of CloudLinux.
