Arch Linux is an independently developed, general purpose GNU/Linux distribution versatile enough to suit any role. Development focuses on simplicity, minimalism, and code elegance. Arch is installed as a minimal base system, configured by the user upon which their own ideal environment is assembled by installing only what is required or desired for their unique purposes.
GUI configuration utilities are not officially provided, and most system configuration is performed from the shell and a text editor. Based on a rolling-release model (similar to Gentoo), Arch strives to stay bleeding edge, and typically offers the latest stable versions of most software.
Generally any software that will run on a Linux dedicated server will run in an OpenVZ based Archlinux VPS environment.
Below are some examples of common software our customers are running in their VPSs:
Every Archlinux VPS is provisioned with a static IPv6 address in addition to a static IPv4 address. This allows all IPv6 compatible applications and services running in the VPS to be accessible to clients on native (or tunneled) IPv6 networks.
With IPv4 address space depleting fast, be ahead of the transition to IPv6.Learn More ››
Dahdi (Digium/Asterisk Hardware Device Interface) timing can optionally be enabled for any Archlinux VPS. This facilitates supporting certain functionality within the Asterisk PBX software, including conferencing. Several FAQ articles are provided in our Knowledgebase outlining the compilation procedure if building Asterisk from source.
Other PBX software can be installed in a Archlinux VPS as well, including:
or software to provide GUI-based configuration, billing, or predictive dialer capabilities to Asterisk:
