"Internet Server Edition now includes Java 2 Standard Edition and KAME IPv6 and IPsec."

"BSDi announced today the immediate availability of BSD/OS Version 4.2 Internet Server Edition. The latest BSD/OS release supports Java 2 Standard Edition and incorporates the KAME IPv6 and IPsec implementations."

"The Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) and Java Development Kit (JDK) are included in BSD/OS 4.2 to develop and deploy 100% Pure(TM) Java servlets and applications. IPv6 and IPsec (for both IPv4 and IPv6) implementations from the KAME Project represent an open industry standard effort of seven companies that contribute regularly to BSD development. Other new features include VLAN (802.1Q, 802.3AC), wireless Ethernet 802.11 (Aironet/WaveLAN), new sound drivers, additional RAID support (AMI MegaRAID, Compaq), Linux Application Platform (LAP) support updated to support RedHat Linux 6.2, and FAT32 support for accessing the hard disk used by the Windows operating system in dual-boot configurations."

"A single Web server powered by BSD/OS Internet Server Edition, can easily handle tens of millions of hits per day," said Mark Garver, Group Executive for BSDi's Internet Systems Division. "With BSDi, Internet service providers, Web hosts and enterprises can set up Web farms with up to thousands of virtual Web sites on a single machine, complete with their own distinct Web and Email domains. Most importantly, our customers boast that their BSDi production servers run for years with zero downtime."
