ClearOS Professional Downloads

Along with the standard ISO image, specialized ClearOS Professional images are available for virtual and cloud environments. If you just want to kick the tires and give ClearOS a spin, you can use the virtual machine images to get a system up and running. For running ClearOS in a live environment, a full install using the ISO image is strongly recommended (even in a virtual environment). A full install lets you choose disk sizes, partitioning, whole disk encryption and other install-only tunables.

To activate your system, you will need to purchase a subscription via the online store or sign up for a 30-day evaluation.
