FreeBSD virtual environment management and repository

Attention! Current pages describe CBSD version 13.0.x. If you are using an older version, please update first.

WEB interface

Web based interface

CBSD offers a web based interface called ClonOS. ClonOS is developed independently to be a standalone platform to manage and create virtual environments in FreeBSD. ClonOS itself is also FreeBSD based, and can be installed and run as a purpose built FreeBSD distribution.

More information can be found on the ClonOS website:

Once enough positive feedback about ClonOS is received, and the developers feel it stable enough, it will be available via the FreeBSD ports tree.

While ClonOS is not currently considered to be production ready, the following features are functionally stable;

  • Interface to create and manage jails
  • Interface for manage bhyve
  • Interface to CBSD forms (Helpers to assist with common tasks)
  • Interface to work with/configure FreeBSD sources and bases

The developers are very interested in feedback by those using ClonOS. The more testing, and feedback provided, the quicker ClonOS will make it into the ports tree. Please click here for more information on submitting feedback.
