SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop Security

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop delivers a desktop computing platform with proven security. Beginning with its heritage in the UNIX world, and adding the strength and manageability of leading application security technology, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop delivers bullet-proof security and peace of mind. When you think of Windows security, lots of things come to mind — viruses, malware, spyware, the blue screen of death, and long delays in getting the latest patches from Microsoft. Security flaws can cost you hundreds of millions of dollars per year as you fix your Windows system and install new service packs. This leads to lost time, productivity and money. So why is Windows inherently insecure? First, it’s a monolithic operating system with services such as Internet Explorer tightly integrated into the operating system. All it takes is a single security vulnerability to expose the entire Windows system to damage. Secondly, Windows traditionally created extra security vulnerabilities by establishing user accounts with “administrator” privileges by default.

Geo Clustering

Distributed Replicated Block Device (DRBD) is a leading open source networked disk management tool, DRBD enables you to build single partitions from multiple disks that mirror each other and make data highly available. Node recovery with Relax and Recover (formerly ReaR) enables a quick return to full operational status after a node failure. It allows the administrator to take a full snapshot of the system and restore this snapshot on recovery hardware after a disaster. This feature is included on the x86 and x86-64 architectures.

Administrators who lack in-depth knowledge of Linux clustering can use the simple wizards and templates included in SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension to quickly complete basic set-up tasks. Cluster Join enables effortless cluster set-up and expansion of existing clusters. Once you build a node or cluster, you can add new nodes without the need to manually replicate configurations. The Cluster Bootstrap offers a menu driven set-up process for rapidly deploying a base cluster.
