ROSA is happy to announce ROSA Enterprise Linux Server "Helium" 2012 server operating system. RELS
2012 is based on a combination of a package base RedHat, the world leader in the server OS market,
modern open open technologies from upstream and brand-name ROSA tools and applications. This allows
to achieve binary-level compatibility with popular enterprise applications and at the same time
extend the system functionality, e.g., for easier integration with existing corporate networks,
visual server configuration and management, etc.. RELS is a first step towards creation of ROSA
Cloud Platform – an integrated solution for building cloud platforms. RELS development (including
rebuilding all packages from the source code) was completely performed by means of ROSA own
development and build system - ROSA ABF.
