Background

Linux Operating Systems

Operating System (OS) builds by The Bunker are fully managed: we take care of Installation, configuration, troubleshooting, service monitoring and maintenance.

We give you a secure hardened Linux OS with the access to run and manage your application whilst keeping your systems running with optimum performance. Your OS will be running in a segregated environment that is regularly patched to mitigate security vulnerabilities.

Security of the operating system is a fundamental and critical line of defence. The Bunker has nearly two decades worth of experience in supporting and managing multiple Linux distributions and gives you options to choose from commercial and non-commercial variants to fit your needs.

Is it right for me?

Security is always our primary objective; server access is multi-factor authenticated and granted on a least privilege basis, while our server builds are hardened to provide a minimal surface area for attack to a level that not only meets, but exceeds, modern compliance standards.

The team managing your Operating System have many years of data centre and infrastructure experience, which spans detailed knowledge of networking and security best practice to keep your applications safe, secure, online and optimised. Our team become an extension of your own, and we will work closely with you to meet your needs and support your business.

We are well versed in making use of Opensource Community support, and can also offer paid licensed support if you choose to use commercial variants for additional peace of mind.

Stable Secure Linux Operating System fully managed by The Bunker, setup to your precise requirements.

Why choose The Bunker?

Services with The Bunker give you peace of mind. Ensure your security with secure hardened builds, minimal least privilege access and a reduced attack/vulnerability footprint. Administered with latest orchestration version control technology, each build is replicated, so changes can be rolled back to a previous version should you require it.

Our team of experienced Opensource engineers will design your system to satisfy the necessary connectivity without putting your assets at risk.

What’s more, we understand that no two customers’ needs are the same, so you can choose the Operating System that best suits your application and licensing needs, whether Red Hat Enterprise, Linux or Debian, and we will build it for you.

How Linux Operating Systems work

We listen to your needs and setup the build according to allow only the required access to your system. From the outset, an SLA will be setup to decide monitoring notifications and maintenance windows, so that we can update and patch for security vulnerabilities. The build will also include any optimisations that are necessary for your application.

System access will be granted via ssh and minimal level of access grants to allow you restart your applications, and upload data will be configured.

Once setup, the support lifecycle of systems monitoring, patching, and backing up will take over, leaving you free to manage your applications.
