Ease of Use

The concept of HELIOS Base is to make your server easy to use and manage. Installation, configuration, and updating are very straightforward. Even switching between supported platforms takes only minutes, and preserves all custom HELIOS settings.

Server Fail Safety

HELIOS software is made for mission-critical environments. HELIOS Base adds another level of server fail safety. The HELIOS Service Controller starts, stops and monitors all HELIOS services. Separate processes per active user are generated, to enforce file security and ensure process safety. If any HELIOS service fails the HELIOS Service Controller will restart the service.

Advanced Printing System

provides the state-of-the-art HELIOS printing system to all other HELIOS products.

HELIOS Authentication Server

supports LDAP, AD/PDC, NIS and local users. Even supports mixed setups, e.g. LDAP, AD/PDC and backup servers.

HELIOS mDNS Server (“Bonjour”)

enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on networks.

HELIOS Index Server

search system indexes file names, text, and metadata, for Spotlight compatible searches for file names and content.

HELIOS DHCP Server

provides TCP/IP configurations to Windows, Mac, and other network devices.

Synchronization Services

allow synchronizing folders or entire volumes to a second folder/volume. Allows syncing to external storage (e.g. a second location) mounted via NFS. The synced data copy can be published for easy client access.

There is no extra cost for HELIOS Base.
