While this is all true, there is still a gap for a good package manager that needs filling.So here comes pkgng (pkg: (next|new) generation), this is Free BSD’s next generation package manager , it is very nice.A quick overview of different approaches is discussed below: This is hardware RAID controllers manufatured by LSI and installed on DELL servers.Hardware RAID offers good performance and does not solicit system resources but they are expensive and proprietary.Free BSD has been long due a better package management system, pkg_add, pkg_info, etc just doesn’t cut it any more.

With the addition of py-setuptools, we could now have py27-foo and py33-bar coexist in one system. This post covers building a server that will be used to update both ports and the base system on Free BSD backend servers that don’t have access to the Internet.For ports it will use poudriere combined with the new pkgng package manager in order to build packages that will be distributed to the other servers using Nginx.Installing a server with Free BSD and taking advantages of the ZFS filesystem to efficiently deal with disk space management, cheap archiving (through snapshot) and rollback possibilities. Hardware RAID controllers have some drawback when used with ZFS, as ZFS in a raidz configuration is able to detect more errors and deal better with them than hardware RAID.It will be necessary to access each disk individually to have the full benefits of ZFS, but usually hardware: This will lead to a situation where it is nearly impossible to ensure that device numbering will always stay the same across modification, addition or disk deletion, and these kinds of operation are common when failure of a drive occurs.
