Canonical Livepatch Service is a technology that updates Ubuntu kernels with important security patches without the need to reboot. It is free for personal use if you have up to 3 servers, and offered as part of the Ubuntu Advantage if you are an enterprise.

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

Many customers come to us wanting to switch from Canonical Livepatch to KernelCare. We provide a free 7-days trial and automated migration to KernelCare.
