Ksplice Debuts Zero Downtime Service for Linux

  • By Developer.com Staff

Cambridge, Mass startup, Ksplice Inc., debuted their zero downtime Linux updating and patching service called Uptrack.

What Uptrack does is it automatically patches Linux servers, installing security and bug fix updates without rebooting.

"From a customer point of view, it's seamless," Chief Operating Officer Waseem Daher told ComputerWorld's Eric Lai.

The service is cheap. Uptrack costs $3.95 a month per server. For more than 20 servers, the cost drops to $2.95.

The updates applied by Uptrack are not certified for compliance with any standards such as PCI, HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley, reports Lai. Also Uptrack patches are not supported by vendors such as Red Hat or Oracle, which could lead to warrantee, or service agreement issues if there's a problem.
