Flensburg, Germany – (The Hosting News) – October 29, 2008 – Hosting company, Servage, has deployed a new server Linux distribution, as a result of the cutting edge features developed by the company, for large scale clustered server systems.

Servage will upgrade its entire infrastructure to the new ServageOS. Servage expects to have completed the upgrade on all servers during November. The most noticeable feature in the new ServageOS is total process separation which provides an optimal hosting environment for each customer. Apart from the complete resource separation, the ServageOS also features full IPv6 support and improved central package management.

Jan Boysen, head of system administration and responsible for the development of ServageOS remarked, ”With a growing server farm central management of updates, patches, source code and deployments has become increasingly important.”

The hosting industry is an increasingly competitive market space with many providers competing for customers. Customers are demanding more value for their money in these turbulent times, which is why Servage has chosen to develop the first Linux Distribution especially tailored for web hosting.

With current installations, customers on the same server or cluster can affect each other in a negative way. This is a challenge that traditional Linux distributions have no real solution to, due to its hosting specific nature. Servage’s German branch has been working intensely to remove this obstacle.

Servage has a long tradition of developing its own innovative software, to solve hosting related challenges. The company was among the pioneers in utilizing cluster technologies on the mass web hosting market. It’s own clustering management protocols were designed especially for hosting, and are still maintained and successfully utilized.

Founded in 1998 under a different name, Servage Hosting is well established, financially independent and experienced in the hosting industry, serving approximately 180,346 websites.
