ClarkConnect becomes ClearOS

ClarkConnect becomes ClearOS

Summary: As ClarkConnect the software has been around since 2000 with a service delivery platform, now called ClearCenter, aiming at small organizations with distributed IT environments.

SHARE:

ClarkConnect,  a derivation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux developed to sell network management programs, has been relaunched as ClearOS, targeting links to cloud services with a Foundation and a clear open source structure.

The page on the Foundation site marked EULA (End User License Agreement) now leads to a standard GPL V2 license.

In other ways it's business as usual. As ClarkConnect the software has been around since 2000 with a service delivery platform, now called ClearCenter, aiming at small organizations with distributed IT environments.

In addition to integrating with what it now calls the ClearCenter cloud, the software boasts integration with Google Apps as well. The community section now has a clearer, brighter interface, complete with the latest Linux comedy videos, and a listing of which members are on the site at any time.

Now, is this just a rebranding or is Clear now a contender in enterprise Linux?

  • ClearOS looks promising

    We have been using ClarkConnect as our office all-in-one sercver, CleaOS' predecessor and have been quite happy with it. This new move with what seems to be a fresh new look and new management and clear business direction can make it a serious contender in the SME market.
