ClearOS 7.1.0 released!


The new version of ClearOS has arrived. ClearOS 7.1.0 Final is now ready for download and installation. For those unfamiliar with ClearOS (formally known as ClarkConnect), it is a GNU / Linux distribution based on CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). It is intended for small and medium businesses as an alternative to Windows Small Business Server.

ClearOS has gotten some awards for the work done with it by the developers of the ClearFoundation, such as the two Best New Products of CompTIA Breakaway. In addition, the distro can be configured from a simple web interface, its default interface, like other systems that we have seen in this blog, such as IPCop, FreeNAT, m0n0wall, etc.

Those interested can download the ISO now (only about 797MB for 64-bit x86) from the project website, In this new implementation, the software has been updated, some errors from previous versions have been corrected as is usual in almost all releases. For example, Samba 4 has been included, updated Microsoft Active Directory Connector, updated antispam and antivirus engine, updates for IDS and IPS users, framework for alerts and notifications, more languages, support for XFS and BTRFS file systems, support VM, etc.

    "Formally known as ...". In Spanish, "formerly" translates as "previously." Greetings

    Very good day. I just read about ClearOS. I am in charge of a public institution with several locations, I just assumed this responsibility and began to migrate the WinServer servers to Linux, the first dependency was on Zentyal Server 3.2 because 5.0 gave me problem after problem to install it, so I tried with 3.2 and if everything has been up and running. The question I want to ask is: Do you know Zentyal and ClearOS to make a comparison between the two? Do you think ClearOS is better? I have always liked Red Hat and its CentOS fork, in fact I tried CentOS before Zentyal and I really liked the work, but I have some guys in charge and the learning curve for them with CentOS is very slow. So I decided on Zentyal as it serves all the configurations from its web interface on a silver platter. But now reading you I find out about ClearOS and I would like to know how it is ... Do I need an Internet connection for the correct installation?

    I have a saying: "If your server works fine, DON'T TOUCH IT" I don't know what ClearOS is like, but I've been using Zentyal 3.5 for a long time and it's perfect for me. There will always be a system with something better than the one you have, and you cannot be changing OS every month, and less on servers
