SALT LAKE CITY, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — ClearCenter, a leading provider of hybrid IT cloud-based and on-premise open source Linux server, network and gateway solutions, today announced availability of ClearOS Professional 6, the latest version of ClearCenter’s ClearOS operating system (OS) designed to support small or distributed business, education, non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO), and government IT needs.
