Mandriva powers up a serious business-server Linux

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva Linux, formerly Mandrake Linux, on Sept. 14 will ship a major upgrade to its business server-oriented Linux distribution. The company claims that Mandriva Corporate Server 4 is fully compliant with the LSB (Linux Standard Base), and therefore should have interoperability with products from other LSB-compliant vendors.

This release of Mandriva Corporate Server 4 is the French-company's first major business server. It's meant to compete with the likes of Red Hat's RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) and Novell's SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server).

The new Linux server is built on top of a 2.6.12 Linux kernel. It also includes OpenLDAP 2.3 for its directory server; Kerberos 5 for network authentication; and both MySQL 5.0 and PostgreSQL 8.1 as its databases. For Web server use, it comes with Apache 2.2 and SQUID as its proxy server.
