Container Linux (previously: CoreOS) – an open source operating system based on the Linux kernel. It was designed to work on server stations, providing infrastructure to support computer clusters. The aim of the system is automation of operation, ease of application implementation, security, reliability and scalability.

CoreOS is a fork of Chrome OS – thanks to the software development kit (SDK) that comes with Chromium OS. Adding new features allows you to adapt your system to support the hardware used on your servers.

CoreOS provides only the minimal functionality required to deploy applications inside containers that provide isolated virtualization environments to safely run applications.

The system does not have a package manager, applications run in containers, using Docker and virtualization technology. This allows to run isolated Linux systems on a single host system and resource allocation is done through multiple isolated user spaces instead of using a hypervisor.

The last version | Released: 2.0.2 | October 30, 2009

SLAMPP Linux – a generic Linux distribution that can boot directly off a CD/DVD-ROM drive, or optionally can be installed on a local hard disk. It is designed to be used as an “instant home server”.

SLAMPP comes with preconfigured tools and applications that allow a personal computer to function as a server. Unlike other Linux Live CD/DVD distributions, SLAMPP is targeting to two main user groups, namely: (1) average users, new to Linux, by giving them the chance to experiment with a non-Windows operating system, without the risk of changing or re-configuring the user’s existing system, and (2) experienced users, by providing them server applications and utilities within reach.

Can you imagine how handy it is to have and carry a linux live CD/DVD that provides all things you need to setup such kind of server? Moreover, SLAMPP strives for a good balance and combination between desktop and server applications.

Features:
– Turns a personal computer into an instant home server which provides support for common protocols, such as: HTTP/HTTPS, FTP, POP, IMAP, SMTP, SSH, DHCP, Squid, etc.
– Modularity. The ability to add additional tools and applications easily in the form of modules. Each new module will be integrated seamlessly during the booting process. Aside from all the modules provided in the Live CD/DVD, custom modules can be created. The tools to do this can be found on the Live CD.
– Webmasters and web developers can use SLAMPP to show their work to others. Just put your web projects on the CD/DVD and SLAMPP will show them instantly.
– Uses Linux kernel 2.6 which provides better support for hardware.
– All setting and configuration changes made during use can be stored on the harddisk.
– Can be installed onto the harddisk to access the server permanently.
– Equipped with Integrated Development Environments, full libraries for web and linux development, various programming languages and databases, complete Open Office suite, multimedia and graphics applications, distributed revision control systems, firewalls, antivirus and content scanner.
– Uses slapt-get/netpkg/Zendo for package management tools and Xfce as desktop environment.

Rockscluster (Rocks Cluster Distribution, originally NPACI Rocks) – a Linux distribution designed for high-performance cluster computing. It was initiated by the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure and SDSC in 2000, initially partially financed by the NSF grant (2000-2007).

Rocks was based on the Red Hat Linux distribution, however, the current Rocks versions are already based on CentOS with a modified Anaconda installer, which simplifies mass installation on multiple computers. Rocks contains many tools (eg MPI) that are not part of CentOS, but integral components that cluster a group of computers into a cluster.

Since its first release, Rocks has become a widely used cluster operating system for research, government and commercial organizations, used in 1,376 clusters around the world, on every continent.

Elemental (The Elemental Linux Server (ELS)) – designed from the outset to be a minimal, no-frills server distribution.

There is no GUI, everything is console-based. There is no package manager, packages are installed from .tar.gz files. There is no administration tool, all configuration is done by manually editing files in the /etc directory.

There is also very little bloat in the ELS distribution.

ELS will easily install on the vintage 1998 Pentium II computer that’s sitting in your basement collecting dust. Don’t throw it out, reanimate it as a home file server or a personal web server.

The project founder is David Horton.

Sabayon Linux (previously RR4 Linux and RR64 Linux) – a Linux distribution developed by Fabio Erculiani, based on and fully compatible with Gentoo Linux. It uses the Entropy package management system that was specially developed for this distribution and Portage.

Entropy installs prepackaged packages which shortens the installation process compared to Portage. You can use Entropy with console or graphic user interface Equo or Ringo.

Sabayon supports x86 and amd64 architectures and is a rolling release distro, which means that you don’t have to install it from scratch after a new version is released. There are ready to go Live CDs/DVDs with GNOME, KDE, XFCE, MATE environments, a minimalist version with Fluxbox, which lets you customize the system according to your needs; and a version of SpinBase without a graphical environment.

To install the system on a hard drive, Sabayon uses the Anakonda installer known from Red Hat and Fedora.

Starting with version 16.06, Sabayon is also available for ARM machines (RaspberryPi).

The last version of Sabayon Linux are available for x86_64 machines only.

In November 2020, Sabayon has been rebranded to MocaccionoOS and merged the project with Funtoo Linux.

UltraPenguin – a Linux distribution for SPARC and UltraSPARC based workstations, which is based on Red Hat Linux. This distribution is for both 32bit and 64bit SPARC CPUs, the advantage is that this distribution works on 32bit SPARCs (sun4 (hopefully, SILO not yet, install image neither), sun4c, sun4m, sun4d) and on 64bit SPARCs.

It is released under GPL. There are really no guarantees and you cannot make Red Hat Software, Inc. liable for anything, as this is really just based on their work.

Supported Hardware CPU’s:
– Sun4 machines (4/300 only at the moment)
– Sun4c machines (IPC, SS1, etc)
– Sun4m machines (IPX, Classic, SS5, SS10, SS20, …, including SMP boxes; only SS5/170 is not yet supported)
– UltraSPARC SBUS based workstations (Ultra1, Ultra2, Ultra1 Creator, Ultra2 Creator, including SMP configurations)
– UltraSPARC PCI based workstations (Ultra30, UltraAX, Ultra10, Ultra5, Ultra60)
– UltraSPARC SBUS based servers: Enterprise 1, 2, 150, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 10000 (SMP is being worked on)
– UltraSPARC PCI based servers: Enterprise 450 (including SMP)

UltraLinux is a fast 64bit free operating system, which supports up to 1TB of physical and another 1TB of IO memory, fully supports Linux/Sparc 32bit binaries plus will soon support 64bit UltraLinux ELF binaries. It uses the Visual Instruction Set for high bandwidth operations, even older 32-bit applications take advantage of this increased performance if they are dynamically linked. The 64-bit userland for UltraPenguin is half done, developers have initial statically linked ELF 64-bit binaries working. We will announce separately the availability of this so others can experiment with it and help us out, so please be patient.

July 12, 1997 – The UltraLinux team announces UltraPenguin 1.0 which was based on Red Hat Linux, version 4.2 for sparc.
