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 two years ago and they are no longer officially patched. This fantastic product has sadly been falling by the wayside

Fortunately, through software engineering magic, we have created Strongbolt Linux.
Built with CentOS 4.5, 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 Strongbolt Operating system

  • 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).
  • Apache 2.0! Which has dozens more features than Apache 1.3

Security is Paramount

Don't leave it to chance! 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.
