CentOS + BlueQuartz Server
Appliances are relieable and inexpensively priced
turn-key devices, which allow you to run your own web-, email- and ftp-server
within minutes. Regardless if you want to host just your own website,
multiple websites, or want to offer shared hosting for a multitude of clients.
The CentOS + BlueQuartz Server Appliances are the much more modern cousins of
the Sun Cobalt RaQs, which are still in widespread use, but are no longer
CentOS is an
Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources freely provided to the
public by a prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor (read that as
RedHat). CentOS conforms fully with the upstream vendors redistribution policy
and aims to be 100% binary compatible. CentOS mainly changes packages to remove
upstream vendor branding and artwork. CentOS is free.
BlueQuartz is an open
source project which is based on the Sun Cobalt Sausalito architecture of the
Cobalt RaQ550. BlueQuartz provides the same GUI functionality which a RaQ550
provides - minus the Chilisoft ASP support (available, but costs extra).
Frontpage 2002 support is available
as free PKG download and pre-installed on our servers. Sites, users,
mailinglists and settings can easily be imported from an existing Sun Cobalt RaQ
to a server running BlueQuartz - through the CMU utility.
The CentOS + BlueQuartz Server
Appliances we manufacture are shipped with all the software
pre-installed and pre-configured. After unpacking you just need to connect the
power cord and network cable, configure the network settings and instantly have
a full working internet server which can easily be administrated through a
browser based web-interface. Adding sites, users and email accounts and most of
the mundane tasks of server administration can then be performed through the

administrators to fully delegate virtual site management while still making sure
that IP addressing will be consistent across the network.

TSV (Tab Separated Value) format.This is a great time saving feature to move
users between Virtual sites or servers.

system admin can delegate the administration to trusted third parties.
Active Monitor is a Sun Cobalt utility that regularly checks key system
components for proper operation.Active Monitor automatically sends
notification messages to the administrator in the event a system component has
The automatic DNS configuration option updates the DNS records when creating
or modifying virtual sites.
The Strongbolt RaQ 550 server appliance is based on a modular software
architecture enabling third-party developers to customize, modularize and

for the developer community.This new feature dramatically simplifies the
task of managing virtual sites.
The Strongbolt RaQ 550 server appliance is based on the current Linux kernel
