kpatch by Red Hat is a technology that updates Ubuntu kernels with important security patches without the need to reboot. It is offered as part of a Premium support subscription and only available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

KernelCare is distribution-agnostic and supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernels, as well as Oracle, CentOS, Amazon Linux, CloudLinux OS, Debian, Virtuozzo and many others, including Embedded Linux Distros.
