New AWS-Tuned Ubuntu Kernel Boots 30 Percent Faster

Canonical, the company that supports the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution, has refined the core for better cloud performance on Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), which provides disruptive downloads 30% faster in a smaller package.

The London-based company said it has worked with AWS - which provided long Ubuntu Linux distributions its many - to improve the "most popular operating system cloud in the world, the most popular public cloud world."

This is supported by numerous cloud naming studies from AWS Provider # 1 and statistics provided by the cloud market that list the distribution of distribution platforms used in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) web service. Cloud market data indicate that Ubuntu is the underlying platform for 56.4% of the 371,131 images available on EC2.

According to the AWS website for Linux distribution, "Ubuntu is popular because of its robust user interface, you can easily work with Ubuntu from the desktop or the command line." Ubuntu is a preferred platform for Linux batteries; AWS has hundreds of stacks of applications and application servers based on Ubuntu. "

Since March 29, developers and others who use these hundreds of application servers and applications based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and supplied through EC2 or AWS quick start of the market should see better performance, according to Canonical.

"This week, and for the first time in the public cloud, canonical, in collaboration with Amazon, is pleased to announce the availability of Ubuntu kernel without AWS equalizer for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS version," said Udi Nachmany to canonical, on a blog the week pass.

Nachmany highlighted the following KMS AWS fundamentals:

  1. cCre boot speed up to 30 percent faster, in a core package 15 percent smaller.
  2. Full compatibility with the elastic network adapter (ENA), including the latest version of the 1.1.2 controller, supporting the network at speeds up to 20 Gbps for ENA body types (currently I3, P2, R4, X1 and m4 .16xlarge).
  3. Support of i3 class
  4.  Improved example, with NVMe storage disks under high IO load.
  5.  Increased I / O performance for i3 bodies.
  6.  Improved instance initialization with NVMe-backed storage disks.
  7.  Disable CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL to remove locks in certain types of cases.
  8.  Resolution of the processor layout with AWS t2.micro cases.

According to the entry of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - Xenial in the AWS market, this is a free version with three paid payment options offering different levels of support and other services.

Nachmany said instances using the AWS kernel Ubuntu offline will be compatible with the company's Ubuntu Advantage department, but they are not compatible with the original Canonical Livepatch service, which allows developers to apply kernel patches without criticism have to be Restarted.

"An investigation is underway to evaluate the delivery of this service to users of the Ubuntu AWS kernel," said Nachmany. "If, for now, speed stability is preferred, you can go ahead with Livepatch back to the old core."

Developers wishing to investigate the general details of version 4.4.0-1013.22 of the underlying Ubuntu distribution core provided by AWS can access the linux-kernel AWS package site.

AWS is also compatible with many other Linux distributions, including CentOS, Debian, Kali, Red Hat and SUSE.
