CentOS is an enterprise-class Linux distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by a prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor. CentOS conforms fully with the upstream vendors redistribution policy and aims to be 100 percent binary compatible. CentOS as a project has grown many fold over the last few years and with this added growth has come the extra responsibility of making sure we have good reliable services that stay available 24/7. This is just the problem that OSUOSL's hosting facilities helps us address – they are available, professionally run and have a very competent team of people. Keeping this in mind, it is at OSUOSL that we are building our level-1 backup and long-term disaster recovery site.
