Sun Cobalt RaQ 4i web server with Strongbolt 2


The Strongbolt server appliance offers a true plug and play web hosting platform for Internet Service Providers. Millions of web sites are hosted on Sun Cobalt RaQ server appliances worldwide. Furthermore, with enhanced modular software architecture and a full suite of development tools, the Strongbolt server appliance offers the perfect environment for the developer community to customize and rapidly deploy their applications.

The Cobalt RaQ 4i is a low cost, high density server appliance for Service Providers (SPs) and application developers that make the deployment of applications and layered services over the Web quick, easy, and profitable. Combining outstanding features, performance and price, the Cobalt RaQ fulfills the SP's need for reliable, comprehensive, dedicated hosting solutions. More importantly, the web browser-based user interface simplifies administration and enables out-of-the-box installations in less than 15 minutes.

The RaQ 4 comes pre-configured with support for the world's leading development environments, giving customers everything they need to develop and deploy their Web applications. Unlike other Web application servers that tightly link the development environment to the server, the RaQ 4 lets you choose from a wide variety of development tools such as Microsoft FrontPage 2000 and Visual InterDev, Macromedia Drumbeat or NetObjects Fusion.

Software

The Strongbolt server is built on the popular CentOS operating system. Coupled with this, the ease of use of a Cobalt RaQ is provided by the Open Source version of the cobalt control panel: BlueQuartz. The BlueQuartz graphical user interface brings a whole new lease of life to the much loved Cobalt hardware. This combination of security, reliability and 'ease of use' provides a 'class A' web hosting solution.

  • Robust and very secure modern and up-datable, supported version of Linux.
  • Easily up-dateable package management system (using YUM).
  • Installing latest security patches is as easy as "yum update" from command line
  • Simple but powerful web-based interface built on the Cobalt 550 GUI (Bluequartz).

If you have ever used a Cobalt Server Appliance before, you will already be familiar with the powerful features and ease of use they offer. Sadly, Sun Microsystems stopped updating the software years ago and they are no longer officially patched.

Fortunately, through software engineering magic, we have created Strongbolt Linux. Built with CentOS 4.4, Strongbolt installs an up-to-date, patched, secure version of Linux to your Cobalt RaQ server!

Bluequartz

The open source cobalt admin panel BlueQuartz is built on the Open Sourced Raq550 control panel. There are some minor differences between BlueQuartz and the Raq550 control panel - it does omit some features including "Chilli Soft ASP". However many of these features, and more are available as additional modules!

Features of the BlueQuartz Administration Panel:

  • Integrated self monitoring (Active Monitor)
  • Apache Web server
  • Email server
  • Integrated DNS server
  • Multiple server administrators
  • SSH server
  • SSL support
  • IP address allocation
  • Bandwidth Limiting
  • Web Statistics

Security is Paramount

Security is paramount when it comes to web hosting!

Cobalt Linux is a discontinued unsupported operating system!

Choose Strongbolt Linux, and update your Cobalt Server Appliance to be as secure as today's Enterprise Standard Linux.
