The use of ClearOS, as a powerful server in the distributed environment, is well known to all. However, like all other software, this one too has evolved over the ages and packs in a whole lot of things now compared to it’s previous versions. In this article, we will have a look into some of the more important features of ClearOS5.1, so that you know what extra features are there for you in store!

- Antiphishing: In this version of ClearOS, security has been treated with paramount importance. IP intrusion was a major concern in the previous versions. Somehow, hackers were having a field day, hacking into the servers on a regular basis. Hence, in this version strict measures have been taken to curb intrusion.
- Graphical Console Tool: For the first time, ClearOS has come out with a clean, simple, ready to use Graphical Console from which users can manage and monitor their server behavior. It’s a pretty smart move, given the fact that you can track the nitty gritties of the server through the console.
- NTP Server Support: NTP Servers are typically used to synchronize all the clocks of the computers in the distributed mode. ClearOS was always recognized for it’s use a powerful tool in the distributed environment. But this addition has escalated the software to the next level of distributed computing. ClearOS 5.1 has inbuilt NTP server support, thus synchronizing all the network clocks can be done through ClearOS itself.
