What's new in Fedora Server DVD 22 Beta:

  • Database Server Role: Fedora 21 introduced Rolekit, a daemon for Linux systems that provides a stable D-Bus interface to manage deployment of server roles. The Fedora 22 release adds onto that work with a database server role based on PostgreSQL.
  • Cockpit Updates: The Cockpit Web-based management application has been updated to the latest upstream release which adds many new features as well as a modular design for adding new functionality.
  • XFS as default filesystem. XFS scales better for servers and can handle higher storage capacity and we have made it the default filesystem for Fedora 22 server users. Other filesystems including Ext4 will continue to be supported and the ability to choose them have been retained.

Fedora Server DVD - The desktiop environment of the Fedora Linux operating system
Fedora is a well known and open source Linux operating system that is sponsored by Red Hat, a company that is a stable, powerful and fast operating system that can be used as the main OS for your everyday tasks. It is completely free to use, share and study.

Fedora is an enormous project with hundreds of developers and tens of thousands of community members worldwide. While the main Fedora edition features the GNOME desktop environment, the project is distributed in multiple editions, with the KDE, Xfce, LXDE and MATE desktop environments.

But these are only the official editions, as there are also various community spins that can be downloaded via Softpedia or from the project’s homepage. The Fedora Server edition reviewed here is an official edition that supports both the 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) architectures.

Available for download as installable-only DVDs

Being designed to be used as only on server machine, Fedora Server is available for download only as installable-only DVD ISO images, which means that it does not include a graphical desktop environment, but only a command-line one. From the boot menu you will be able to start the installation in graphical mode, as well as to test the integrity of the DVD (if booting from a DVD media), as well as to access advanced boot options like rescue mode, booting from a local drive or running a memory test.

Installing Fedora Server

As mentioned, the installation of Fedora Server takes place in graphical mode, which means that if you’ve installed Fedora before, you’ll have no problem installing the server edition. Basically, you’ll have to choose your native language, partition the disk, as well as to enter a password for the root (system administrator account).

Bottom line

In conclusion, the Server edition of Fedora is a really great server-oriented operating system that uses the latest upstream Linux kernel technologies and it include a wide variety of server-related packages.
