ClearOS named #1 Server Distribution

ClearOS was recently named by Linux Voice the #1 server distribution for it's variety of server functions. ClearOS offers 100+ IT functions all easily installable through ClearOS Marketplace. ClearOS is dedicated to delivering a stable, scalable, and affordable solution for the Server, Network, Gateway and many Cloud Integrated technologies. Linux Voice said it best when they said:
"The "Clear" advantage: One of the biggest advantages of ClearOS is its larger repository of supported server software. During installation, you’ll be asked to select whether your ClearOS installation will be used inside a protected network (like an office), in a publicly accessible network (like a hotspot or a data center) or as a Gateway server. Also, unlike Zentyal, ClearOS requires you to create an account and register your installation with ClearOS HQ before you can access its server apps and services. ClearOS supports over 82 free services for various roles including a network server, a gateway server, a cloud server and more. In addition to common servers such as a directory server, database server, mail server, web server, FTP server, content filter and more, you can use the installation as a seedbox and a Plex Media Server. There are also several system and network management tools for creating backups, managing bandwidth, RAIDs, access control lists and more. New admins who aren’t sure of the components they should install can use the Feature Wizard, which helps pick services depending on the type of server they wish to roll out." says Linux Voice.

ClearOS 7 is also now offered in Community, Home, and Business editions. This latest version of ClearOS adds even more functionality with new apps appearing in the ClearOS Marketplace, broadening it's abilities.

In conjunction with MarineVSAT (a ClearCenter Authorized Partner), we've developed technology for tracking vessels and maintaining Multi-WAN connectivity over satellite.

ClearBOX offers the ability to manage maritime networks with direct integration to idirect systems. Reliable network connectivity and satellite beam switching are now possible, and easily managed through the ClearOS interface (on ClearBOX).

This provides fleet managers with the location of the vessels, and ensures maximum throughput on VSAT connectivity as the vessel changes its position. At sea, satellite internet can cost tens of thousands of dollars per month; while only providing .5 to 1.5Mbps speeds. Divide that bandwidth by dozens of crew members and you can see why bandwidth control is critical. These maritime centric ClearBOXs from MarineVSAT come equipped with everything needed to secure the vessel and provide needed IT systems. They also provide bandwidth management and Multi-WAN technologies needed to capitalize on the connection maintained by the Beam-Tracking app.

The Vantage Fleet (Ad-Vantage vessel shown) is the latest to utilize this technology; simplifying how their onboard systems and technology are used and managed. For more info on Vantage Yachts check them out here.
