    Rebootless Kernel Updates

    Rebooting server is a pain. It is often scheduled for the darkest of night. It requires minutes of downtime, and it can take up to 15 minutes for the server performance to stabilize, and caches to warm up. This is not something you want to do often.

  • No more sleepless nights

    No more sleepless nights

    Linux servers have to be rebooted quite often to update security issues that pop up in the kernel. Such reboots usually need to be done late at night to ensure the least impact on end users - but stressing sys admins and adding significant costs.

Rebootless Kernel Updates

  • Save time, updates are automated

    Automated updates prevent server administrators from having to stay up late at night to schedule reboots to complete kernel patching.

  • Prevent security incidents

    KernelCare agent residing on your server periodically check in with our distribution servers. If there are new patches available for the currently running kernel, it will download it - and apply it to the running kernel, making the kernel secure again.

  • Avoid downtime

    KernelCare provides a service that will patch security vulnerabilities inside the running kernel - without any downtime or service interruption.
