Zoe Knipe writes: "Idaya, (www.idaya.com) has announced the launch of its CD-ROM-based version of freeVSD, the GPL virtual server solution for Linux. The product, available worldwide (www.idaya.com/products/freevsd) provides web hosting service providers with a secure installation of freeVSD, a production-quality Virtual Private Server platform, including 30 days of installation support, and lite versions of Idaya?s popular Windows-based control applications."
Idaya is releasing this product for ISP?s seeking to ?roll their own? web hosting systems, and includes a secure remote administration protocol and example web based administration system.

Tony Arnold, CEO of Idaya comments, ?The freeVSD CDROM is also an ideal method of evaluating the VSD platform before purchasing a full, professional solution. We are just weeks away from announcing a complete commercial solution including our latest control panel technology. The solution will be available as self-installing software or pre-installed appliance, with many more value-added features in the pipeline.?

VSD is an advanced web-hosting platform for ISP?s, educational institutions and other large organisations. It allows multiple Virtual Private Servers to be created on a single server, each with a truly separate and secure web-hosting environment. This reduces the ISP?s hardware outlay and also lowers the overhead of customer support due to delegated administration. Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL), freeVSD includes a secure remote administration protocol and free web-based administration system.

Lite versions of the following control panel software are included with the freeVSD CDROM:

· VSDControl provides ISP support staff with a secure, efficient and easy method of managing VSD servers
· VSDClient provides Virtual Private Server owners with the ability to manage users and services
· VSDMail provides a simple, secure method for domain owners to configure mailboxes, forwarders and autoresponders
