SME Server: The Linux solution for growing businesses

Filed under
Linux

If you’re running a small business and you’re in the market for server, you might want to consider SME Server, a Linux distribution customised specifically for the small and medium sized business environment. You can find SME Server, which is is based on CentOS, a distribution known for its stability, at www.contribs.org.

The community’s forums and wiki are very active and there are lots of HowTos available. Additional repositories are also available for many extra packages that could not be included in the download because of the limitations of a single CD ISO file. The price is also right because it only costs the price of your bandwidth to download the 700MB file. One should however, feel free to contribute to Contribs.org, especially if you obtain payment for offering its services to others.

Why SME Server?

Perhaps you’re thinking: “So what, I can do that with [your favourite distro here].” What makes SME server special is that its features are well integrated and that after the installation there is no need for end users to see the command line again. You can install it and forget about it. You can deploy it at client offices without worrying about having to telephonically help an end-user through the intricacies of tab-completion and the bash history. SME Server quietly and efficiently gets on with its work.
