					Fuscan Linux Cloud Version 2.0 Officially Released

SingleOS announced the release of Fuscan Linux CLoud (fuscan.com) version
2.0, a Shared Cloud automation software for cPanel/WHM based web hosting
providers.

San Diego, CA, August 13, 2011 -- A new version 2.0 of Fuscan Linux Cloud
has been officially released during HostingCon 2011, the world's premier
hosting conference which took place in San Diego, California between
August 8 and August 10, 2011.

SingleOS, the company behind the Cloud software automation solution
announced a few significant changes in Fuscan version 2.0. In the version
1.0 Fuscan used to use GFS. It was replaced in version 2.0 with GlusterFS
as a mainstream file system.

GlusterFS, a software, licensed under GNU AGPL v3 license, is a scale-out
NAS file system which aggregates various storage servers over Ethernet or
Infiniband RDMA interconnect into one large parallel network file system.
It is based on a stackable user space design without compromising
performance.

GlusterFS has significantly improved the performance of Fuscan Linux
Cloud and added more flexibility the software.

Fuscan 2.0 also features a new resource manager. The SingleOS development
team replaced the Red Hat resource manager (RGManager) with Pacemaker.
The reason is that Pacemaker is recognized as feature-rich and more
flexible.

The 2.0 version also features a new resource manager. Out development
team replaced the Red Hat resource manager (RGManager) with Pacemaker.
The reason is that Pacemaker is recognized as feature-rich and more
flexible.

Pacemaker offers a great service configuration and more flexibility
compared to the RGManager. It allows users to configure specific
scenarios for running services in a certain time frame. The users can set
rules and requirements that allow or forbid a certain service (Database,
Web server, Mail server, etc.) or resource (IP, directory, etc.) to run
on a particular node. Pacemaker also features an improved high
availability, allowing for a service to additionally run in a
master/master or master/slave modes, compared to just active/passive in
RGManager.

Issues Overcome Compared to Fuscan 1.0 Version

In version 1.0 Fuscan Linux Cloud faced issues with slow GFS locking and
slow read performance. These have completely eliminated with the
implementation of the new file system. The implementation of the
GlusterFS allows for a better data safety, scalability and management.
Features like replication, distribution, and striping data are standard
for GlusterFS. Mixing and matching these data modes is also supported.
In its version 2.0 Fuscan Linux Cloud also features improved management
interface.

SingleOS has recently announced a 50% discount on licenses of Fuscan
Linux Cloud. Web hosting providers that want to take advantage of the
