based distro for virtual hosting platform and
appliance. lonOS is a free open-source
FreeBSD-based platform for virtual environments
creation and management. In the core: FreeBSD OS
as hoster platform, bhyve(8) as hypervisor engine,
Xen as hypervisor engine, vale(4) as Virtual
Ethernet Switch, jail(8) as container engine, CBSD
Project as management tools, Puppet as
configuration management, We like existing (but
unfortunately Linux-only) solutions such as
OpenStack, OpenNebula, Amazon AWS and we believe
that FreeBSD OS is able to give something similar.
Main Highlight: ZFS features support; VM cloning,
export, import, Ethernet SoftSwitch for separated
networking, jails for lightweight container, VNC
terminal for VM/containers, Templates for
VM/containers, Configuration management/helpers,
Multi-node operation, and many other..
FreeBSD distribution with great tradition, based
on excellent command line installer,
post-installation and help (bsdconfig). Installing
the graphical environment is easy with a printed
guide of the internet. Excellent performance and
ideal for heavy computing work.
make the instalation simple, in less than 5
minutes you have a professional server, with the
modern file system: ZFS. FreeNAS is not only a
storage server (NAS), is an aplication server,
with the plug-in's and vitalization
(jail/container). All this is controled by one
grafical interface over the network.
is a user-friendly desktop operating system based
on FreeBSD. The project's goal is to create an
easy-to-use and familiar workspace that can be
used at home or office and for data rescue.
GhostBSD supports a number of popular lightweight
desktop environments. It also provides FreeBSD's
package management system, LibreOffice, LibreCAD,
and Eclipse/Anjuta development environments for C,
aims to implement innovative exploit mitigation
and security solutions for the FreeBSD community.
Security is like an onion--it's made up of layers.
In order to be successful, attackers must peel
back each layer. HardenedBSD takes a holistic
approach to security by hardening the system and
implementing exploit mitigation technologies. We
will work with FreeBSD and any other FreeBSD-based
project to include our innovations.
||NomadBSD is a 64bit live
system for USB flash drives, based on FreeBSD®.
Together with automatic hardware detection and
setup, it is configured to be used as a graphical
desktop system that works out of the box, but can
also be used for data recovery.
Writing the image to a USB memory stick
Decompress the downloaded image with:
# lzma -d nomadbsd-X.Y.Z.efi.lzma
and write it to your USB stick using dd:
# dd if=nomadbsd-X.Y.Z.efi of=/dev/da0 bs=1M
Make sure to use the correct device name for of=
||We want to give users,
developers and businesses a friendly, stable and
transparent environment. This will help in making
OPNsense the most widely used open source security
platform. Of course features and a high-quality
product are important, but we believe that besides
that the true power of open source is in its
community and parties working together.
||This is a flexible and innovative
firewall for the virtual world, with multiple
enterprise features including load balancing and
packet inspection and easy to use GUI. Built using
the latest version of FreeBSD
(formerly known as PC-BSD) TrueOS® is essentially
a customized installation of FreeBSD, not a forked
derivative. Since the underlying FreeBSD system
has been kept intact, you have a fully functional
FreeBSD system under the hood. TrueOS® provides an
easy-to-use installer which can be used to install
a desktop or a server version of FreeBSD. Other
differences from FreeBSD include TrueOS®
pre-configures the BSD-licensed, Lumina desktop
environment during a desktop installation.
Additional desktop environments can be installed.
The installer supports configuring ZFS and
encryption during installation and TrueOS® comes
pre-configured with a number of automatic scripts
to perform tasks such as connecting digital
cameras or USB memory sticks.
||The ease and familiarity of Ubuntu
with the rock-solid stability and performance of
the FreeBSD kernel. This project is in BETA stage!
It is production-ready in most cases but you could
easily find some bugs. You have been warned.

latest version of FreeBSD with hypervisor support.

is an embedded NAS distribution designed for home
and small businesses users primarily, but could
potentially scale to larger projects. Can
configured with UFS or ZFS file-system. The
XigmaNAS operating system can be installed on
virtually any hardware platform to share computer
data storage over a computer network. XigmaNAS is
the simplest and fastest way to create an
centralized and easily-accessible server for all
kinds of data! XigmaNAS supports sharing across
Windows, Apple, and UNIX-like systems. It includes
ZFS, Software RAID (0,1,5), disk encryption,
S.M.A.R.T / email reports etc. with following
protocols/services: CIFS/SMB (samba), Samba AD,
FTP, NFS v4, TFTP, AFP, RSYNC, Unison, iSCSI,
