Download Nexenta Core Platform 2.0 RC1

Anil Gulecha has announced the availability of the first release candidate for Nexenta Core Platform 2.0, a base operating system combining the OpenSolaris kernel with Debian utilities and Ubuntu software packages.

What is Nexenta?

Nexenta OS is a computer operating system based on Debian/Ubuntu and Solaris for IA-32 and x86-64 based systems. It emerged in fall 2005, after Sun Microsystems started the OpenSolaris project in June 2005. Version 1.0 of the NexentaOS was released in February 2008, building upon many release candidates that were widely used in 2006 and 2007. Nexenta OS is the first distribution that combines the GNU C library and userland with the OpenSolaris kernel. The Nexenta OS supplies capabilities such as transactional upgrades and an open source packaging capability to the Linux / Debian community, enabling the simple creation of software appliances. An additional purpose of Nexenta OS is to provide a kernel allowing proprietary closed source hardware drivers to be produced for inclusion in an open source operating system. Nexenta Systems, Inc. initiated the project and sponsors its continued development.

There are two official APT repositories: "testing" and "unstable", totalling over 9000 packages. A third "stable" was added for the first official release. Nexenta OS is available as InstallCD and VMware images. A Live CD is also available, but only for releases up to alpha 5.

Nexenta repositories follow the general Debian structure (main contrib non-free). Stable releases use a subset of this structure. Packages originate from Debian GNU/Linux via Ubuntu.
