What is ClearOS ?

in their own words.......
"ClearOS is an operating system platform that will run on dedicated hardware or in your virtual environment in your home, office, or datacenter. ClearOS runs server, network, gateway, private cloud and cloud-connected applications and services designed for the IT environment. For example, you can use ClearOS as:
  • a finely tuned system with just a handful of specific apps and services to create a specific IT solution, or
  • an Internet gateway to protect your other computers from the outside internet while providing your users with a stable, fast web experience
  • a server where you store your files for secure access inside and outside your network
  • a network platform to facilitate core network services to provide ease of management of your network
  • a cloud platform which allows you to both integrate with cloud services or to become your OWN cloud services provider for your workstations
  • a versatile all-in-one solution that does everything above, or
  • something completely in between! "
