Welcome to Business Server
Our Business Server is a Linux family of operating systems based on Red Hat and CentOS Linux for the enterprise, small business, and home. There are three editions to choose from depending on your needs and suitable to your abilities. They are: Enterprise, Home, and Core.
The Enterprise edittion is a powerful network and gateway server designed for small organizations and distributed environments. Though the Enterprise edittion comes with an extensive list of features and integrated services (see sidebar), the solution is easy to configure thanks to the intuitive web-based interface.
The Home edittion is an easy to use server, network and gateway platform designed for home environments. The Home edittion comes with an extensive list of features and integrated services for the home user and computer enthusiast (see sidebar). It is easy to configure thanks to the intuitive web-based interface. The Home edittion will be released soon and will be a developing work in progress.
The Core edittion is a multipurpose, enterprise-ready platform designed for businesses. It features scalable network technologies. It is managed using traditional Linux tools. The Core edittion features web, database, high availability and desktop features.
Open Source and Free
The open source revolution in the software industry has made it possible to provide all versions at no cost. The Enterprise and Home edittions include out-of-the-box features including: antivirus, antispam, VPN and content filtering are built right into the software -- no need for expensive third party add-ons. With ClearOS, you can avoid costly vendor lock-in and proprietary formats; instead, you can embrace open standards and protocols.
Is It Really Open Source And Free
Yes. All the features that you see listed over there on the right are free to use and install. ClearOS is built on open source software, so when you install the antivirus engine - for example - you also get the open source updates that come with it! ClearCenter provides enhancements to these core open source features - for example more in-depth antivirus signature updates - but these do not take away from the underlying open source software.
