Widely-used OpenServer operating system enhanced with new capabilities

BERKELEY, CADecember 7, 2015—Xinuos™, a leading provider of solutions based operating systems, today announced the release of Xinuos OpenServer 5 Definitive, an important upgrade for OpenServer 5 customers. This will be the final update to OpenServer 5 and gives companies new capabilities and continued support. The release of the Definitive versions of OpenServer 5, OpenServer 6 and UnixWare 7 come as the company prepares for the upcoming launch of OpenServer 10, the reliable and secure operating system designed for modern business.

OpenServer 5 has a large install base in companies that need reliability, scalability, and security. First released by The Santa Cruz Operation in 1995, OpenServer 5 has been used for decades for business-critical operations, such as the first Internet-based food delivery system run by Pizza Hut.

Xinuos is committed to supporting OpenServer 5 customers with break/fix support and features for today’s workplace. The Enterprise Edition provides a variety of network services including file and print for UNIX® and Windows®, email services, web services, Internet connectivity, and calendar. This Enterprise edition offers a large base of business applications including accounting, health care, manufacturing, and human resources along with remote administration to simplify system maintenance and management.

“Our customers rely on OpenServer 5 to get business done. We want to help them with new features and support to address today’s business challenges,” said David Meyer, Xinuos Chief Technology Officer.

OpenServer 5 Definitive includes:

  • A wide range of supported hardware platforms and peripherals
  • Internet services and tools
  • Email client and server components
  • Data backup and recovery
  • Graphical administration tools, a graphical desktop, and browser-based online help
  • Support for current security standards


OpenServer 5 Definitive is optimized to run in a VMWare or Microsoft Hyper-V environment. In addition to energy savings and lower capital expenditures, virtualization provides higher resource availability, easier scalability, increased security, and improved disaster recovery.

Optimized for OpenServer 10

The Xinuos stack solution allows OpenServer 5 Definitive to run within OpenServer 10 so companies can migrate applications to a native environment in OpenServer 10. This stack solution can be hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for greater flexibility.
