In the works: dozens of new apps, high-security deterministic builds, clustering, multi-app installations, better backups...
Common Base for All Appliances
The common base system on top of which all TurnKey GNU/Linux images are built. It includes custom automated backup and migration software, a web management interface, automatic daily security updates, live installer, configuration console, and all other common features. Take a look at some screenshots.
Run from browser:
- Base distribution: Debian 7.2 (Wheezy)
Build formats: deploys on bare metal, virtual machines (e.g., OpenStack, VMWare, VirtualBox, OpenVZ, Xen, KVM) and in the cloud.
- ISO images: Generic installable Live CD. Installs anywhere.
- Virtual Machine images: Optimized for virtualized hardware, pre-installed and ready to run.
- Amazon Machine Image (AMI): best launched via the TurnKey Hub. Alternatively, experts can use the listing of AMI codes to launch through other interfaces (e.g., Amazon CLI tools)
- Smart backups (TKLBAM): Automated backup and restore, with system migration capabilities
- Secure and easy to maintain: Auto-updated daily with latest security patches
- Dynamic DNS (hubdns): Associates your IP with a custom domain or the free *.tklapp.com domain
- Logical Volume Management (LVM): Instead of installing to a fixed size partition, a Logical Volume is first created by default, and this may later be expanded, even across multiple physical devices
- AJAX web shell (shellinabox): secure command line access from any web browser
Web management interface (Webmin)
- Listens on port 12321 (uses SSL).
- Mac OS X themed.
- Firewall configuration (with example configuration)
- Network configuration
- Backup and migration (TKLBAM)
- Configure time, date and timezone
- Configure users and groups
- Manage software packages
- Change passwords
- System logs
- Text editor
- Shell commands
- Simple file upload/download
- File manager (needs support for Java in browser)
- Custom commands
- Partitions on local disks
- Logical volume management
Simple configuration console (confconsole):
- Displays basic usage information
- Configure networking
First boot initialization
- Prompt user for passwords
- Regenerates SSL and SSH cryptographic keys
- Installs latest security updates, unless user chooses to defer this for later
- Uses GeoIP to automatically configure closest APT package archive for maximum network performance
Command line power tools
- Smart, programmable bash shell completion: helps you get more done with fewer keystrokes.
- Support for $HOME/.bashrc.d shell hooks
- Persistent environment variables (see $HOME/.bashrc.d/penv):
penv-set pydoc /usr/share/doc/python2.6/html
- Automatic time synchronization with NTP
