ClearVM 2.0 Availability

Welcome to the soft release of ClearVM 2.0. Feel free to log in and to try our latest release (May 18, 2018).

ClearVM consists of a Client side worker and a cloud portal for management. We've been working hard to improve the functionality of ClearVM and are happy for its release. To begin using ClearVM, log into the web portal at:

You will need a ClearSDN account to log in. To create your free ClearSDN account, please visit:

2.0 Features

The following features are showcased for ClearVM 2.0:

  • Transition to long-term support OS backend (CentOS, ClearOS, RHEL).
  • Enhanced Network support
  • UEFI support
  • Non-keyed Worker support
  • Integration of authentication with the ClearCenter Service Delivery Network.
  • General UI improvements

By default, ClearVM by itself will run itself on CentOS version 7.x. The transition of ClearVM to CentOS gives it an end of life for updates and fixes for the client side OS until June of 2024!!!

In addition, we've added more support for multiple network interfaces through bridging instead of VLANs. This means that you can use multiple NICs and use ClearVM to better support virtual routers and gateways.

UEFI support means that ClearVM will run natively with modern hardware and will be future proofed for devices that will soon abandon Legacy BIOS support.

In addition to pre-federation of your USB key to your account, ClearVM can be installed now using a generic key that is NOT tied to a specific user. This generic key does not replace the pre-federated key but rather is a useful mechanism for system integrators and others that wish to share ClearVM in a manner that allows for creation of the ClearVM account after distribution of the image.

Caveats and Limitations

Because of the changes to both the authentication model and to the underlying OS at the client side, upgrades from 1.0 to 2.0 are not supported. Certain feature available in ClearVM 1.x are not available yet in ClearVM 2.0. We expect these features to come online soon. Please visit this page again after the hard release on Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

Future Enhancements

ClearCenter has an ambitious roadmap in regards to on-premise virtualization and management through ClearVM and ClearGLASS. We realize that while the 'cloud' is phenomenal for certain tasks, concerns remain over privacy and security.


For a limited time, engineers will be offering free support for ClearVM related issues even for free users. Please log into your ClearSDN portal in order to create a ClearCARE ticket regarding any issues related to ClearVM.
