The launching of version 3.0 of NOVA, Cuba’s operating system, was one of the main attractions of Informatics 2011 International Tradeshow this Thursday.
It is a system that uses the Linux core and includes certain application packages in order to meet migration needs toward open code platforms. It ensures a safe antivirus system, with no backdoor worms, that contributes to the country’s capacity to advance technologically and autonomously.
Developed by students from the Informatics Sciences University, NOVA Linux 3.0 stands for a step forward towards the replacement of foreign and costly operating systems, mostly Windows, whose use is additionally vetoed for Cubans due to the blockade.
According to Mr. Hector Rodriguez, deputy rector of the Informatics Sciences University and head of the national technical group for the migration to open code platforms, this system allows for higher informatics security level than those found in owners’ systems as they are designed and programmed in keeping with Cuba’s needs and features.
He underlined that it is a very promising system for companies as it can be adapted to each entity’s requirements as a guarantee for its own security and technological development.
