Colocation America Donates Server to CentOS

Colocation America, a top colocation provider, has lately donated among their premier dedicated servers to CentOS, a Linux distribution that is based on freely provided pubic sources.

The CentOS team of developers took possession of a premier dedicated server that will aid their efforts and boost their development. This donated dedicated server allows CentOS to distribute updates for their clients directly and quickly via yum, facilitate distribution from the CentOS tree to external public mirrors.

“We are very happy to manage to engage in CentOS in any way we are able to,” says Michael Trunkett, President and CEO of Colocation America. “Their operating-system is very reliable and trusworthy and also the fact that many schools for example Austin Community College and University of Maiduguri depend on it, should give people much more of an incentive to trust their platform.”

For individuals who may not be familiar with CentOS, they are bringing technology towards the masses, for free. Founded with a small group of developers, CentOS provides an active and prosperous user community, system and network administrators, core Linux contributors and contributors from all over the world. Being that CentOS is available, and really wants to remain, free of charge it is essential that larger companies, for example Colocation America do what they can to keep them going strong.
