ClearFoundation is pleased to announce that the ClearFoundation site and forums has been successfully moved to a joint server farm that also hosts the Koozali SME Server project community content. Additionally, portions of the longstanding RPM build system which has built the current versions of both SME server and ClearOS has been moved together into the shared space provided at ClearCenter’s data center in Orem, Utah. Koozali (contribs.org) is an distinct Open Source community with a mission to develop and distribute Koozali SME Server. Both SME Server and ClearOS have a shared synergy and many common Open Source goals and are both based on the same upstream Linux distribution.
The shared server farm and geo-redundant RPM build system was engineered by veteran SME developer Shad Lords. Shad has been part of the SME Server community and a core SME Developer for over a decade and, in recent years, is a member of the ClearFoundation team
This move and hosting collaboration with Koozali will increase the speed and reliability of the ClearFoundation community content and data while leveraging a friendly Open Source relationship with Koozali. Both ClearFoundation and Koozali SME Server project data and community content will reside on separate virtual machines managed on the shared server farm each managed by administrators of the respective projects.
