  • Transcript

    • 1. Make FreeBSD your choice for a server!
    • 2. Demands for high performance servers
      • Near 100% uptime
      • Ease of maintence (virtually or physically)
      • Ability to server all users simultaneously
      • Ability to upgrade/update with minimal downtime
    • 3. Choices for high performance servers
      • FreeBSD – PC, Alpha and Sun
      • Windows NT – PC, MAC and Alapha
      • Solaris – PC and Sun
      • Linux – PC, Alpha, Sun, MAC
      • Novell Netware – PC
      • Mac Server - Mac
    • 4. Why choose FreeBSD?
      • Advantages
        • Powerful (customization)
        • Source code availability
        • Server software availability
      • Disadvantages
        • Arcane and archiac
        • Non intuitive
        • Limited user software availability
    • 5. Where does FreeBSD come from?
      • Derivitive of original Unix code
      • First developed at UC Berkley
      • Split off to make a freely developed operating system
      • Supported by a community of developers
        • Applications
        • Networking
        • File System (kernel)
    • 6. Design of FreeBSD
      • Bounce buffering
      • Merged virtual memory and filesystem buffer cache
      • Compatibility modules
      • Dynamically loadable kernel modules
      • Shared libraries
      • SMP (Symetric MultiProcessing)
    • 7. What is FreeBSD?
      • Based on Unix
      • Developed in a community
      • Mature and dependable
      • Multi-platform support
      • Wide array of server applications
      • Highly configurable
    • 8. Communually developed
      • Anyone can modify the code for their own operating system
      • Ideas and thougts are shared and implimented
      • Other people update operating system (other than vendor)
        • Leads to optimized code
        • Knowledge is shared
    • 9. Mature and dependable
      • Can be up for years without downtime
      • Applications seperated by kernel
      • Used by a number of major internet sites
      • SMP (Symetric MultiProcessing) code is the most mature and stable among other server operating system’s
    • 10. Multi-platform support
      • Will run from 386SX to IA64 class PC's
        • Supports most disk controllers (IDE, ATAPI, SCSI)
        • Supports virtually all network cards
        • Will handle almost all back-up devices
      • Will run from IPX to Ultra systems by Sun
        • Supports most hardware made by Sun Microsystems
        • Supports almost hardware made for Sun systems
      • Runs on DEC Alpha
    • 11. Wide array of server applications
      • Databases – MySQL, PostgreSQL
      • Internet/Intranet
        • Share filesystems with NFS
        • Distribute network information with NIS
        • Support remote logins
        • Remote SNMP configuration and management
        • Serve files with FTP and SMB
        • Resolve Internet hostnames with DNS/BIND
        • Routing packets and IP Multicast services
    • 12. Highly configurable
      • Can be customized to suit your needs
        • Optimize applications to reach max. efficency
        • Maintain and configure all applications remotely
        • Update the system without reboots
        • Optimize utilities and kernel for your particular processor and hardware
    • 13. Competive Advantages
      • Inexpensive as compared to others
      • New updates are released every month
      • If something needs to be customized (i.e. kernal), can be done with ease
      • Availability over the web
    • 14. Security
      • Kernel support for IP firewall and proxy
      • Encryption software
        • Kerberos
        • PGP
      • End-to-end encryption
        • Secure Shell
        • Virtual Private Network
    • 15. Personal Thoughts
      • Performance is superior to all others
      • Very secure alternative to other programs
      • Ability to control all internet and intranet services
      • Developed almost two decades
      • Free!
