- From Obsolete Servers to Private Cloud in 3 Easy Steps

| 1. Assemble the Pieces
| CentOS is the free version of the popular 
| Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system. 
| It is a community-supported, mainly free, 
| software operating system based on Red Hat 
| Enterprise Linux. It exists to provide a 
| free, enterprise-class computing platform, 
| and it strives to maintain 100 percent 
| binary compatibility. CentOS stands for 
| Community ENTerprise Operating System.
|     We knew that CentOS had clustering 
|     capabilities, so we installed it across 
|     all five of our servers. Once we patched 
|     them and hardened the servers, we used 
|     the native clustering functionality to 
|     run all five servers as one environment. 
|     The really nice thing here is that the 
|     enterprise investment in the RHCE 
|     certification for us was not wasted. Our 
|     server administrators already had the 
|     skills to carry out the architecture 
|     design, so right there we were able to 
|     avoid contractor or training expenses.

,----[ Quote ]
| CentOS 5.4 is based on RHEL 5.4, which was
| released in August. The key enhancement to
| RHEL 5.4 was the addition of full support
| for the KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine)
| hypervisor, which has been implemented in
| preview form in CentOS 5.4. Other RHEL 5.4
| enhancements include cluster improvements,
| new graphics drivers, laptop docking
| support, ALSA audio infrastructure,
| improved Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
| enablement, security and tools
| enhancements, and a host of general Linux
| kernel improvements.

| architectures. CentOS 5.4 is a free Linux
| distribution based on the source of Red Hat
| Enterprise Linux 5.4 (RHEL), which was released
| at the beginning of September. The 5.4 release
| includes several changes over version 5.3
| including both new and updated packages based
| on RHEL 5.4 and custom changes by the CentOS

| Built on the CentOS distribution and with
| features like Qmail MTA, MailScanner,
| SpamAssassin, ClamAV anti-virus, Squirrel
| Mail, Group Office (a Web-based
| collaboration suite), MySQL, Joomla CMS,
| and a customised administration panel
| using a PHP and Ajax interface, TechnoMail
