In the past few days there has been alot of buzz about SingleHop offering CloudLinux as the first product in our Cascade cloud hosting lineup. So while many computer enthusiast get fascinated when one puts the word “cloud” and the world “linux” together, what does this innovating OS really offer you that is cloud like and linux like at the same time?

For starters, CloudLinux was designed with stability in mind. The promise of cloud hosting, whether it is done in a massive computer-grid scale, or it is done inside your own dedicated server, demands at its core that all VM’s running on it be as stable as possible. That one has astounding scalability is amazing and rewarding, but scalability means nothing without stability. CloudLinux was designed with a key technology called Lightweight Virtual Environment, or LVE. LVE  is simply a kernel level technology that allows you to control resources for group of processes. Such technology allows for application level virtualization, and especially beneficial for multi-tenant environments such as shared hosting. In shared hosting environment such limits make sure that no single site can slow down or take down a server.

In more basic words (not that you need them) LVE allows you to have your cake and eat it too! You can offer a cloud-hosting environment and minutely manage the resources that each environment is using with CloudLinux. Furthermore, it helps you ensure that the system’s performance is evenly distributed, or unevenly distributed as you may design it to be, between environments based on how much they pay or whatever other specifications you choose to apply.

So.. your interested. But, how accessible is CloudLinux to use? Well, with support for multiple control panels CloudLinux is in no way trying to re-invent the wheel. It simply giving you tools and resources to more intelligently and expertly manage your hardware resources in a shared hosting environment. CloudLinux supports the following control panels:

So without much more ado, we are very excited to have CloudLinux as the very first product that is launched under our Cascade cloud hosting system.

Happy Hosting!

    Update: @kexik as mentioned via pvatire email, and since it could potentially help other API users, please note that your problem is related to a bug in ASIHTTPRequest (popular Objective-C HTTP library). We’ve already identified this bug, contacted ASIHTTPRequest’s author via Twitter and also opened a pull request: . Feel free to refer to this pull request for more technical details.In the meanwhile we’ve also applied this patch to our official Moodstocks iPhone SDK () that’s why we strongly encourage our API users to work with it as far as their iPhone apps are concerned. Since the SDK provides a high-level abstraction, it makes easy to integrate our solution without getting your hands dirty with such technical stuff!
