ServerAtSchool 1.0 Launched

ServerAtSchool 1.0, a free, Linux-based server product designed for elementary schools, is now available.

The ServerAtSchool project is a Linux network server designed to work together with Windows workstations, offering features that were developed especially for use in primary schools.

Services include a web server, a website content management system, a mail server, a flexible user management tool, a chroot jail for users, hourly backups of user documents, nightly (off-site) backups, spam control, a name server, DHCP, a printer server, web mail, virus scanning, a firewall, a database server, a file server for Windows clients, a time server, and a secure shell.

This looks like something I’ll have to explore next year with my preservice teachers, in a demo environment. It looks promising from what I see on the site and may be ideal for those looking for a good approach to serving and managing documents, and developing a web-presence in elementary schools.
