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. Live patching is a way of updating Linux kernels without stopping or restarting them.
Our upcoming webinar will explain what live patching is, how KernelCare does it, and how the technology fits neatly into the VMware Cloud on AWS operating ethic.
