Linux ClearOS. RedHat / CentOS
John Willemse    

Badkey goes: Linux ClearOS. Linux build on on CentOS. http://www.clearfoundation.com

ClearOS, Distribution Timeline and Software.
We are old friends to open source.  At ClearFoundation, our team has been together for nearly 10 years with over 118,000 registered systems in the field. ClearOS is based upon RedHat / CentOS Linux and has been developed over time by diligent developers with tons of customer feedback.

In 2005, we incorporated several elements of CentOS to the benefit of the solution.  We are excited about what the future will bring with new resources, developers, and partners in the future!

The software will be built by ClearFoundation, and support services can be purchased from ClearCenter. ClearOS 5.1 removes previous limitations to mail, DMZ, and MultiWAN functions.

Starting with the ClearOS 6 release:
The distribution will be a full-featured operating system for servers and workstations built from source packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Features include:
Stateful firewall (iptables), networking and security
Intrusion detection and prevention system (SNORT)
Virtual private networking (PPTP, IPSec, OpenVPN)
Web proxy, with content filtering and antivirus (Squid, DansGuardian)

Groupware (Kolab)
Database and web server (easy to deploy LAMP stack)
File and print services (Samba and CUPS)
Flexshares (unified multi-protocol storage which currently employs CIFS, HTTP/S, FTP/S, and SMTP)
