VMware Cloud on AWS

During the second quarter of 2019, KernelCare became officially validated and available for customers of VMware Cloud™ on Amazon Web Services (AWS). VMware Cloud is VMware’s enterprise virtualization suite, built especially for Amazon’s AWS cloud infrastructure. VMware Cloud on AWS is the natural choice for mission-critical, always-on application services, offering distributed load balancing, dynamic resource allocation, and easy management. Organizations use services like VMware Cloud on AWS to deploy hybrid cloud service stacks and data centres. Its familiar vSphere operating environment makes it easy to migrate mission-critical services and applications.

Building them on Linux yields versatility and a high ROI, but security and availability are harder to get. That’s because the Linux kernel needs constant patching, and that means downtime and waiting for reboot cycles. With KernelCare’s live patching, one can update Linux kernels without having to stop or restart them.
