A substantial portion of the codebase of cPanel and the x3 interface itself has been streamlined and made to perform better and require less bandwidth. Also available as part of cPanel Accelerated are two alternatives for DNS and IMAP. The NSD nameserver can reduce memory usage for DNS functions by up to 40% over BIND. On busy nameservers that can add up to a huge resource savings. Also included in version 11.24 is Dovecot IMAP as an alternative to Courier IMAP. Dovecot provides up to a 25% reduction in disk I/O as well as using between 10% to 70% less memory then Courier. Security has also been enhanced with the reworking of cPanel’s process monitoring daemon to include service specific verification which helps to improve the security of running processes. Backups are faster too. Pkgacct 8 has been reworked to become significantly faster then previous versions. That means you can safely backup your data and restore it, both incrementally & non-incrementally much more quickly then previous versions. This all adds up to increased performance, reduced resource usage and ultimately a more efficient webhosting operation for cPanel customers.
