Linux News Today: netOS Server 7 Service Pack 1 Released, netOS Core Server Available for Download
Roberto J. Dohnert from Black Lab Software (PC/OpenSystems LLC) has informed Softpedia today, July 14, about the immediate availability of the first Service Pack (SP) for the netOS Server 7 operating system, as well as the GA of netOS Core Server.
Designed as a continuation of the Black Lab Linux Enterprise Server distribution, netOS 7 Server offers the same extensive feature set, support for the latest and most modern hardware devices, and ships with the easiest of configuration scripts for fast deployments in demanding markets.
“Many of our clients run netOS Server with zero unplanned downtime. It is a perfect platform to create your own private cloud, deployed as a workgroup server or setup as a terminal services appliance,” Roberto J. Dohnert reveals for Softpedia. “netOS Server 7 SP1 has been setup from the ground-up to be the easiest Linux server platform to deploy.”
Powered by Linux kernel 3.19, shipping with the Xfce 4.12 desktop
Powered by the Linux 3.19.0-61 kernel packages from the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) operating system, netOS Server 7 Service Pack 1 uses the lightweight Xfce 4.12 desktop environment. Moreover, it now includes the Google Chrome web browser as a drop-in replacement for Midori, which was used by default in the previous build but didn’t offer satisfying Flash Player support.
This first Service Pack of netOS Server 7 also comes with a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server that is easy to set up and deploy, an Apache Tomcat 8 application server, the powerful Webmin 1.800 server administration tool, and, last but not least, the ownCloud 8 self-hosting server. netOS Server 7 SP1 is available now for all supported hardware, including OpenSERVE and miniSERVE.
For the first time ever, Black Lab Software comes with a solution for offering its netOS Enterprise Server operating system to the world as a free download. That’s why they are introducing today netOS Core Server, which includes almost the same set of great features that have been implemented in the netOS Server 7 Service Pack 1 release. Download netOS Core Server right now via our website and enjoy a powerful server-oriented OS.
