"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
"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."
