Why KernelCare is a better choice?

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.

Many customers come to us wanting to switch from kpatch to KernelCare. We provide a free 30-day trial and automation to migrate to KernelCare.
