Most “Unix like” operating systems are OpenSource which means they may be used in a variety of ways, without need for licensing. This allows OpenSource Operating Systems an advantage over Fee Based models, primarily through a low cost advantage, especially for large corporations that deploy multiple servers over a vast environment.

At Unixworx Systems, we believe in a “No Nonsense Approach” to doing business, as well as sharing our information, knowledge and skills. Our systems and the systems we deploy are fully documented so anyone within your organization can adapt and understand the system.

Before Choosing an Operating System understand what you need.

FreeBSD and the BSDĀ® Family – The Choice for Web Applications
The BSD’s, Such as FreeBSD and NetBSD use Multi-threaded SMP architecture capable of executing the kernel in parallel over multiple processors and high performance file systems that optimize disk performance. The largest websites in the World use FreeBSD. The BSD firewall and security applications are second to none with a choice of several firewalls including PF and IPF. There are several levels of security to FreeBSD and it’s notable to add that not one single security advisory alert issued by CERT, has ever mentioned the BSD Operating System.

We Rank FreeBSD and the BSD family number #1, especially for high volume, resource driven web applications.

To summarize, FreeBSD is a robust true Unix* OS with all the security features you could ask for. Is it easy to administer? Simply put, it’s an advanced BSD based command line operating system that takes skill, knowledge and years of experience to completely understand and fully maintain.
