Automatic and Rebootless Linux Kernel Update – KernalCare

The main responsibility of every system administrator is maintaining software and security updates, this can be a daunting task if you are managing multiple servers, operating in different time zone and hosting your server / VPS in multiple locations. You need to schedule a task with your clients/stakeholders, take the servers offline and apply the patches manually. If you are running a Linux OS (CentOS, Redhat, Ubuntu, Debian,…) now you can apply security patches automatically to a running kernel thanks to Kernel Care.


KernelCare solution runs in the background, as soon as new patches and security updates are available (every 4 hours it checks for new patches) KernalCare will automatically applies the new patches without rebooting the server. This amazing service saves you time and money while ensuring your OS if up to date and secure.  Below are some of the KernelCare features and benefits:
