FreeBSD Cloud Servers
FreeBSD, an indirect descendant of AT&T UNIX via the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD), has a long and turbulent history dating back to 1993. Unlike Linux distributions, which are defined as integrated software solutions consisting of the Linux kernel and thousands of software applications, FreeBSD is a tightly integrated operating system built from a BSD kernel and the so-called "userland" (therefore usable even without extra applications). This distinction is largely lost once installed on an average computer system - like many Linux distributions, a large collection of easily installed, (mostly) open source applications are available for extending the FreeBSD core, but these are usually provided by third-party contributors and aren't strictly part of FreeBSD.
FreeBSD has developed a reputation for being a fast, high-performance and extremely stable operating system, especially suitable for web serving and similar tasks. Many large web search engines and organisations with mission-critical computing infrastructures have deployed and used FreeBSD on their computer systems for years. Compared to Linux, FreeBSD is distributed under a much less restrictive license, which allows virtually unrestricted re-use and modification of the source code for any purpose. Even Apple's Mac OS X is known to have been derived from BSD. Besides the core operating system, the project also provides over 21,000 software applications in binary and source code forms for easy installation on top of the core FreeBSD.
vServer Center's FreeBSD Cloud Server is a FreeBSD Virtual Server that is served by a computing resource pool (aka Cloud) consists of redundant network switches, redundant enterprise class data storage systems, redundant high end physical computer servers, and VMware server virtualization and cloud computing software. Each of our FreeBSD Cloud Servers has its own dedicated operating system and maintains the same functionality as traditional physical computers. Our VMware FreeBSD Servers support High Availability (HA). If a physical computer fails, your FreeBSD server will be automatically switched to other live physical computers. We guarantee 100% FreeBSD Cloud Server uptime!
