The KernelCare Linux kernel patching service is a system offered by CloudLinux. This product provides ongoing security patches for many Linux kernel versions. Updates are installed live without requiring a system reboot, which is a tremendous incentive when running an active server. Because CloudLinux offers a free symlink (symbolic link) protection patch for servers running CentOS 6 and 7, Liquid Web is replacing existing versions of KernelCare with this free version.
CentOS 8 to CentOS Stream
With the recent announcement by CentOS 8 regarding the switch from CentOS 8 to CentOS Stream, this commonly used Linux distribution is being relegated to a mid-stage development version of RHEL. In essence, CentOS 8 becomes an early rolling-release distro for RHEL. As CentOS moves from being a follow-up distribution to the stable version of RedHat, to be, in effect, a prerelease version of RHEL, many users are looking for alternatives to replace their current operating systems with a long-term stable platform apart from RHEL and IBM who owns RedHat.
