The OpenLogic Certified Library is a repository of pre-approved open source packages. Enterprises can use this library as a way to safely and securely manage and control open source software. The Certified Library contains open source packages that:

-- Have passed OpenLogic's 42-point certification process; -- Are supported by OpenLogic's one-call technical support and backed by the OpenLogic Expert Community; -- Are indemnified against potential IP risks; -- Are automatically kept up to date on latest version releases and security patches. 30 Minute Installation
