SoftLayer Enhances Linux Services

Dallas-based managed hosting provider SoftLayer Technologies said this week that it has added a new, Linux service which allows for faster kernel security updates. SoftLayer said it has added Ksplice Uptrack support, an add-on which allows kernel security updates to install on Linux systems running on the SoftLayer Dedicated Server or CloudLayer Computing services, within seconds, and with no reboots. Pricing on the new service was not announced.
