.:. Server Desktop
Web-based GUI allows for extreme ease-of-use. The Cobalt RaQ 550
provides end users with a simple yet powerful interface to manage
and modify virtual sites.
.:. IP Address Allocation
The main administrator of the server can specify and limit
what IP addresses will be made available to the other administrators
when they create or modify virtual sites. This feature allows service
providers and network administrators to fully delegate virtual site
management while still making sure that IP addressing will be consistent
across the network.
.:. User Import/Export
The administrator can use this function to import or export a user
list in TSV (Tab Separated Value) format. This is a great time saving
feature to move users between Virtual sites or servers.
.:. Multiple Administrators
The system administrator can create additional administrator accounts.
The system admin can delegate the administration to trusted third
.:. Cobalt BlueLinQ
Cobalt BlueLinQ application delivery service is an innovative
mechanism that gives Cobalt RaQ 550 server administrators instant
access to the latest product updates and new services as they become
available. Using Cobalt's BlueLinQ technology, the appliance notifies
the administrator when a new package is available, and then with
a click of a button, allows the administrator to download the new
software package and have it automatically installed.
.:. Active Monitor
Active monitor is a utility that regularly checks key system components
for proper operation. Active monitor automatically sends notification
messages to the administrator in the event a system component has
.:. Auto DNS (Domain Name Server)
The automatic DNS configuration option updates the DNS records when
creating or modifying virtual sites. This new feature dramatically
simplifies the task of managing virtual sites.
.:. SSH Server
A pre-installed SSHv2 server allows the administrator and users
to securely connect to the server appliance using a standard SSH
client. The use of SSH considerably increases the system's security
by encrypting all data including passwords that are exchanged between
the client and the server appliance.
.:. Port Scan Detection
Enhanced server security. The Cobalt RaQ 550 server automatically
detects port scans. If the administrator chooses to do so, port
scans can be logged, the emitter of the scan can be automatically
blocked and an email alert can be sent to the system administrator.
.:. Buffer Overflow Protection
Enhanced server security. The main services on the Cobalt RaQ 550
server are protected against buffer overflow in order to protect
the system against "stack-smashing" attacks. Stack-smashing attacks
are one of the most common forms of penetration attacks on the Internet
and exploit vulnerabilities known as "buffer overflow vulnerabilities".
.:. Journaling file system implemented
XFS is a journaling file system capable of quick fail over recovery
after unexpected interruptions. XFS is an important feature for
mission-critical applications as it ensures data integrity and dramatically
reduces startup time by avoiding FSCK delay.
