        * Enterprise network setup
        * Host-based authorization of users and services
        * Easy connection of remote offices with VPN

        * Integrated backup and restore system (you can restore a single
        file from a backup as well as the whole partition)
        * Unified file storage with quota support
        * Automatic RAID1 creation if installer detects 2+ identical
        * An easy and convenient administration interface that doesn't
        require profound knowledge of the server subsystems
ALT Linux 5.0 Desktop and ALT Linux 5.0 GNOME Desktop features:
        * A choice of a graphical environment for users (KDE 4.3 or
        GNOME 2.26)
        * Automatic detection of a connected Office Server installation
        along with configuration of network-wide settings from it
        * Easy interaction with containers that are installed at the
        Office Server, including out-of-the-box terminal client mode
        * A set of software that lets you start working right away: an
        office suite, internet applications and more
        * Host-based authentication
        * Integration with Office Server network file storage
Using ALT Linux Office Server and ALT Linux (GNOME) Desktop in
complement, you can instantly raise efficiency of users' and
administrators' everyday work: there's one place to add and set up user
accounts, network resources are automatically mounted, services are
announced and automatically discovered via Zeroconf. Another useful
feature is virtualization with pre-defined profiles (KVM and OpenVZ
technologies are at your choice). Newcomers can easily administer the
server and the network by means of the AJAX-powered web interface
(sporting ALTerator technology).
