CloudLinux makes use of lightweight virtual environment mechanics, specifically tailored for the shared web hosting industry.
It allows tenant isolation, whilst maintaining the normal environment of a shared dedicated server.
One of the biggest pitfalls of the shared web hosting architecture is its inability to handle large resource spikes commonly associated with busy websites.
In a normal shared environment a busy website has the ability to effect all websites on the server as it over-consumes available server resources.
Common reasons for resource overuse include:
- naturally busy/high traffic website
- script error (out-of-control loop)
- individual website attacks
- website/server overselling
- resource intensive web application
Protection Through Isolation
CloudLinux web hosting utilises a kernel level virtualisation technology which provides resource limits and allocations on a tenant by tenant basis.
This ensures one individual tenant can not over use available server resources, resulting in a stable shared web hosting service for all websites server wide.
CloudLinux LVE can isolate:
- CPU core allocations
- Physical memory allocations
- Virtual memory allocations
- Disk I/O (read/write) speeds
- Entry processes
- Filesystem access
