NetYCE Open Source license status

September 2014

NetYCE uses the following components in its distribution. All are Open source.

The NetYCE software uses several frameworks that also include Open source licenses:

The Apache and MariaDB installations use the public installation distributions for RHEL (see below). The Perl package is part of the NetYCE distribution. It is pre-compiled and optimized, complete with all CPAN modules and dependencies. It does not replace any system Perl installations.

Support for ‘MySQL’ versions 5.5 and 5.6 is available, but will not be distributed by NetYCE. Oracle requires for the redistribution of MySQL a licensed copy. If the customer prefers MySQL over MariaDB, he must download and install copy himself. MariaDB is an Open Source branch of MySQL 5.5 that has proven more stable and supporting more distributed architectures than the Oracle MySQL version 5.6.

The NetYCE software requires the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating system for x86 architectures. Supported are the 64-bit versions (x86_64) of RHEL 5.x and 6.x. The recently released RHEL 7 is not yet supported due to unfinished testing. RHEL releases are available with commercial support from Red Hat or without support from CentOS.

NetYCE products can be installed on customer-hardened RHEL systems, either using physical hardware or virtual. In this case the security monitoring and updates are the responsibility of the customer, although NetYCE needs to notified of the perceived vulnerability and planned update.

Alternatively, the NetYCE software can be distributed pre installed as a virtual appliance using CentOS RHEL 6.5. The OVA image is designed to work with the hypervisors: VMware ESX, Oracle VirtualBox, VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion, Parallels Desktop.
