Why Xojo Cloud? Because Updating A Linux Server Is Complicated On Any Planet

I was up hours later than I should have been last night reading The Martian when, after discussing in detail how to hack some really old software in some really old equipment located about 54.6 million kilometers away, I read this line: ““Jesus, what a complicated process,” Venkat said. “Try updating a Linux server sometime,” Jack said.”

And my first thought was, “Oh!, that’s why we offer Xojo Cloud!”

Even (fictitious) NASA Engineers know how complicated it can be to keep your Linux servers up-to-date! We’ve blogged before about how Xojo Cloud is both secure and convenient. Xojo Cloud uses a Xojo-optimized version of Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux), which is based on CentOS. You don’t have to worry about keeping it up-to-date and you don’t have to worry about installing libraries needed by Xojo.

Even NASA Engineers know updating a Linux server isn’t easy. So take it from Jerry and me, save yourself some time and frustration and move to Xojo Cloud.
