Linux in space: CloudLinux powers Atlas V rocket

CloudLinux's TuxCare services are now providing automated security patches and updates for the systems supporting the Atlas V rocket. “Protecting US [and world] national security means having the ability to launch important payloads into space. TuxCare from CloudLinux is proud to do our part to support the [US] Department of Defense and the Space Force by providing critical security patches for ULA’s Atlas V rocket,” said Jim Jackson, president and CRO of CloudLinux.

In a world where some question the code-share channels of open source communities and the use of components that may (or indeed may not) bring into question their provenance, prowess and performance… CloudLinux is an organisation on a mission to increase security, stability and availability of Linux servers and devices.

Headquartered in Palo Alto, CloudLinux Inc. develops a hardened Linux distribution, Linux kernel live security patching, extended support options for Linux and web server security software.
