BetterLinux Released!

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

BetterLinux software was officially released at Hostingcon 2012. What is BetterLinux you ask? Its a new software product that does what its name implies. It makes linux better by allowing a system administrator to be in complete control of the linux system.

You no longer have to let out of control cpu or disk I/O intensive processes take your system down or slow down other users or more important processes. You can also set alarms that tell you when certain processes or users exceed specified cpu, I/O, memory, processes limits, and many other system activities.

Database admins will be especially pleased to know that BetterLinux can now detect and deal with abusive MySQL queries so that no individual MySQL users/dbs can negatively impact the performance of any server running our software.

Whether you are on a shared server, a VPS (Virtual private server), a dedicated server, or a cloud server it doesn’t matter. We will make your over utilization of system resources problem go away!

In addition, as cloud server usage continues to erode the traditional shared/dedicated server markets it becomes imperative to guarantee network storage I/O speeds. BetterLinux can do that for you. Our software works from the lowliest thumb drive to the fastest SAN network storage. Now you have the ability to set IOPs (I/O operations per second) or exact disk bandwidth limits per user or per process. You can also allow bursting to ensure that 100% of the cpu and disks are utilized if you would like it be. It also works great for local storage, network attached and virtual network devices such as NFS, ISCSI, etc. LVM is 100% supported as well.

We are so excited to finally be releasing BetterLinux. This multi-year project has been the passion of many people. Please help us to make the product as good as it can possibly be! Try it free until 2013.
