KernelCare Achieves Amazon Linux 2 Ready Designation

April 21, 2020 – CloudLinux’s KernelCare live patching system has achieved the Amazon Linux 2 Ready designation in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program.
 
This recognizes that KernelCare has been validated by Amazon Web Services to run on and support Amazon Linux 2.
 
“We’re proud that KernelCare has achieved AWS Service Ready status,” said CloudLinux President Jim Jackson. “We look forward to offering Amazon Linux 2 users the reliable, effective Linux kernel patching that KernelCare provides.”
 
KernelCare is already in use in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Alex Wojtowicz, the owner of Internet service provider Warpnet, says about it, "We have been using KernelCare at our EC2 instances for a long time. We do not run EC2 instances without KernelCare because we think that this is fundamental to bringing security and reliability to our customers."
 
About KernelCare
 
KernelCare (https://www.kernelcare.com/) patches vulnerabilities in a Linux kernel while the server is running. No reboot is necessary. This greatly improves security, since kernels can be patched within 48 hours of a CVE being made public. KernelCare is compatible with Amazon Linux, CentOS, RHEL, Ubuntu, Debian, and many other Linux distributions.
 
About the AWS Service Ready Program
 
Amazon Web Services established the AWS Service Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS. This helps them spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated with, or run on, AWS.
