Pada hari ini kami kedatangan Andy Hidayat (Seorang IT Consultant sekaligus SysAdmin yang menyebarkan Faham FreeBSD Indonesia). workshopnya biasanya disebut dengan istilah Ruqyah
FreeBSD adalah UNIX−like operating system (sistem operasi seperti UNIX), tersedia gratis di internet, sangat banyak digunakan dalam dunia ISP (Internet service provider), embedded devices, serta bidang lain yang membutuhkan reliability tinggi.
FreeBSD dibuat dari source code UNIX original yang diproduksi oleh AT&T tahun 1970.
Bertahun-tahun yang lalu, AT&T membutuhkan banyak komputer untuk menjalankan bisnis mereka. Saat itu, AT&T dilarang untuk ikut dalam bisnis komputer. Sehingga akhirnya mereka menjual lisensi software mereka beserta source codenya ke universitas dengan harga yang murah. Mahasiswa universitas yang mengakses teknologi ini dapat membaca source code dan belajar bagaimana software tersebut bekerja.
Sebagai imbalan, AT&T mendapat:
– programmer gratis
– patch gratis
– serta para scientist yang meningkatkan kualitas software AT&T
& then everybody feels happy :D …
Software AT&T yang sangat terkenal dalam lisensi ini adalah UNIX.
Kenapa disebut UNIX−like?
Yah, kata “UNIX” adalah sebuah nama trademark (merk dagang) yang dimiliki oleh The Open Group. Jadi kalo kamu punya product operating system, dan ingin diberi nama UNIX, product kamu harus di-certified oleh The Open Group, dan kamu harus bayar uang banyak ke mereka. Karena FreeBSD dibuat bukan untuk profit, maka namanya menjadi UNIX-like.
Bahkan Vendor teknologi ternama dan juga situs-situs besar di Internet banyak yang memakai FreeBSD.. Dibawah ini adalah List nya :D
Who Uses FreeBSD?
FreeBSD's advanced features, proven security, predictable release cycle, and permissive license have led to its use as a platform for building many commercial and open source appliances, devices, and products. Many of the world's largest IT companies use FreeBSD:
Apache - The Apache Software Foundation runs most of its public facing infrastructure, including possibly one of the largest SVN repositories in the world with over 1.4 million commits, on FreeBSD.
Apple - OS X borrows heavily from FreeBSD for the network stack, virtual file system, and many userland components. Apple iOS also contains elements borrowed from FreeBSD.
Cisco - IronPort network security and anti-spam appliances run a modified FreeBSD kernel.
Citrix - The NetScaler line of security appliances provide layer 4-7 load balancing, content caching, application firewall, secure VPN, and mobile cloud network access, along with the power of a FreeBSD shell.
Dell KACE - The KACE system management appliances run FreeBSD because of its reliability, scalability, and the community that supports its continued development.
Experts Exchange - All public facing web servers are powered by FreeBSD and they make extensive use of jails to isolate development and testing environments without the overhead of virtualization.
Isilon - Isilon's enterprise storage appliances are based on FreeBSD. The extremely liberal FreeBSD license allowed Isilon to integrate their intellectual property throughout the kernel and focus on building their product instead of an operating system.
iXsystems - The TrueNAS line of unified storage appliances is based on FreeBSD. In addition to their commercial products, iXsystems also manages development of the open source projects TrueOS and FreeNAS.
Juniper - The JunOS operating system that powers all Juniper networking gear (including routers, switches, security, and networking appliances) is based on FreeBSD. Juniper is one of many vendors that showcases the symbiotic relationship between the project and vendors of commercial products. Improvements generated at Juniper are upstreamed into FreeBSD to reduce the complexity of integrating new features from FreeBSD back into JunOS in the future.
McAfee - SecurOS, the basis of McAfee enterprise firewall products including Sidewinder is based on FreeBSD.
NetApp - The Data ONTAP GX line of storage appliances are based on FreeBSD. In addition, NetApp has contributed back many features, including the new BSD licensed hypervisor, bhyve.
Netflix - The OpenConnect appliance that Netflix uses to stream movies to its customers is based on FreeBSD. Netflix has made extensive contributions to the codebase and works to maintain a zero delta from mainline FreeBSD. Netflix OpenConnect appliances are responsible for delivering more than 32% of all Internet traffic in North America.
Sandvine - Sandvine uses FreeBSD as the basis of their high performance real-time network processing platforms that make up their intelligent network policy control products.
Sony - The PlayStation 4 gaming console runs a modified version of FreeBSD.
Sophos - The Sophos Email Appliance product is based on a hardened FreeBSD and scans inbound mail for spam and viruses, while also monitoring outbound mail for malware as well as the accidental loss of sensitive information.
Spectra Logic - The nTier line of archive grade storage appliances run FreeBSD and OpenZFS.
Stormshield - Stormshield Network Security appliances are based on a hardened version of FreeBSD. The BSD license allows them to integrate their own intellectual property with the system while returning a great deal of interesting development to the community.
The Weather Channel - The IntelliStar appliance that is installed at each local cable provider's headend and is responsible for injecting local weather forecasts into the cable TV network's programming runs FreeBSD.
Verisign - Verisign is responsible for operating the .com and .net root domain registries as well as the accompanying DNS infrastructure. They rely on a number of different network operating systems including FreeBSD to ensure there is no common point of failure in their infrastructure.
Voxer - Voxer powers their mobile voice messaging platform with ZFS on FreeBSD. Voxer switched from a Solaris derivative to FreeBSD because of its superior documentation, larger and more active community, and more developer friendly environment. In addition to critical features like ZFS and DTrace, FreeBSD also offers TRIM support for ZFS.
WhatsApp - When WhatsApp needed a platform that would be able to handle more than 1 million concurrent TCP connections per server, they chose FreeBSD. They then proceeded to scale past 2.5 million connections per server.
Wheel Systems - The FUDO security appliance allows enterprises to monitor, control, record, and audit contractors and administrators who work on their systems. Based on all of the best security features of FreeBSD including ZFS, GELI, Capsicum, HAST, and auditdistd.
FreeBSD is also used to power some of the biggest sites on the Internet, including :
