"The Cambridge, Mass., start-up has about 35 customers and several thousand servers using its paid Uptrack service, in which security and maintenance patches are automatically applied to Linux servers with minimal delay and no downtime," writes Computerworld's Eric Lai.
"Ksplice Uptrack is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu, Debian GNU/Linux, CentOS, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, and OpenVZ," writes ZDNet's Paula Rooney.
"Ksplice converts the updates released by distributors and makes them available on a subscription basis," according to The H Open Source. "The service is free of charge for Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10. For enterprise distributions, the vendor charges $4 per system for less than twenty systems and $3 for larger numbers."
