New update system for CentOS-4

The CentOS Project has developed a Geo-IP enabled system for our CentOS-4 yum updates that generates dynamic mirror lists based on two very important items:

1. The connecting location of the client.

2. The current freshness/staleness of the mirrors for that region.

This update system will allow us to read the connecting location of a client, look for fresh mirrors close to that client, and provide a list of ten mirrors for each CentOS repository that is included in the file /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo. The selection base is currently about 100 mirrors from around the world.

Latest version of CentOS-7 released

Now it is the time when the long wait for the much anticipated CentOS 7.0 has come to an ends as all the suspense from its latest version has been kicked. The latest edition of the CentOS 7-0 is now available for users for 64-bit x86 compatible machines. But before we move regarding the ins and outs of the CentOS-7, just give a look for CentOS and its phase wise progress from its beginning.

What is CentOS: CentOS is actually the abbreviated form of (Community enterprises Operating System) which was initially releases in May 2004. It is a complete free operating system distribution which worked for contributors and users. It we talk about the users of the CentOS, and then it is not difficult to understand for the organisations and individuals that do not need strong commercial support in order to achieve successful operation. In other words, CentOS especially for people who need an enterprise class operating system stability without the cost of certification and support.

After its launching for first time in 2004, it faces many struggling phases and ups and downs but it was July 2010 when CentOS becomes the most popular Linux distribution for web servers and it played crucial role for many servers with sufficient distribution.

However it was January 2012 when it lost its position and utility before the Debian, which becomes the favorable choice for the users.

But once again CentOS has become the most popular Linux distribution device in the hosting industry and it has changed the entire system with its unique features.

The latest launching of CentOS-7 moves its one step ahead which is equipped with latest and innovative techniques and facilities.

In fact, it will be justifies here to announce that it is the first release for CentOS 7 and the edition has been noticed as 7.0-1406. Just after the upstream EL7 release, there have been some updates released - these have been built and are being pushed to the CentOS mirror network at the moment. It will be also be crucial here to mention that for the first time, this release was built from sources hosted at git.centos.org.

CentOS is an special enterprise-class Linux Distribution which has been derived from the source freely provided to the public. One thing is very clear here that it is the first time when CentOS-7 has been provided by fully upgraded path with respect to CentOS-6 and it is supported by latest and upgraded version available so far. However still the launching, the equipment needed for the successful functioning is still under the testing and it will be releases only after passing the successful testing on the ground level.

Installation of Media: For the sake of installation of the CentOS, the one of the major requirement is the need for image which will help for its installation. Downloading of these installation images is not a difficult job as it completely depends upon the environment in which you are interested to install the CentOS-7.

Apart from this, the live media images can also help you during the installation process of the device and it can also be installed with the hard disk but a precaution should be taken here during the process as what one installed on the hard disk, it must be matched exactly with the live media images.

Download details:
