Why KernelCare is a better choice?
Ksplice is a technology that updates kernels with important security patches without the need to reboot. After its acquisition by Oracle, it is now offered as part of the Oracle Linux Premier Support.
KernelCare is distribution-agnostic and supports Oracle Linux kernels, as well as CentOS, Amazon Linux, CloudLinux OS, Debian, RedHat, Virtuozzo and many others, including Embedded Linux Distos.
Many customers come to us wanting to switch from legacy Ksplice to KernelCare. We provide our Clients with the automated way to migrate to KernelCare.

“We tested it, but to be honest, it wasn’t very exciting – it ‘just worked’.”
President/CEO, Glexia, Inc.
“We’ve been using CloudLinux, KernelCare, and Imunify360 since their inception. The products have allowed us to provide notch service and security to our customers who demand the latest in technology and security. Anytime we’ve had an issue, we’ve had a response within hours and a resolution almost always within the same day. CloudLinux’s service and support are excellent and their pricing is fair and reasonable to their customers. They’ve never once raised our prices grandfathering us into our plan. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”
Chief Technology Officer, Liquid Web
“We have come to consider KernelCare as an essential service. The downtime that reboots cause is a disruption for customers, and nuisance for admins, that can be easily avoided with KernelCare.”
