Hancom Group establishes new corporation ‘Arowana Hub’.
– ‘Hancom Gooroom’ pilot construction in An Yang University, which is an open OS, using the academic administration system
– Securing a bridgehead to expand the open OS market in the future as the first example of introduction in the education sector
Hancom Inc. (CEO Byun Sung-joon) will supply ‘Hancom Gooroom’, which is an open OS, to An Yang University (President Park Noh-joon).
Hancom was selected as the organizer of the “2021 Open OS Private Pilot Support Project” organized by the Ministry of Science and ICT (Minister Lim Hye-sook) and supported by the Information and Communication Industry Promotion Agency (Director Kim Chang-yong).
Hancom partially converts the operating system of PCs operated by computer rooms, book search rooms, computer development, and administrative departments of An Yang University into Hancom Gooroom instead of MS Window. In addition, it will provide Hancom Office and Gooroom Browser exclusively for Hancom Gooroom to help secure continuity and security of existing business environments.
In addition, Hancom Gooroom’s central management server solution ‘Gooooroom Platform Management Server’ and update server are provided to help efficient operation and management by enabling users to install programs, permissions, and data access.
Through this project, Hancom and An Yang University plan to derive necessary improvements in the composition and operation of a multi-platform-based academic administration system using Hancom Gooroom and expand the scope of application in each stage.
Kim Dae-ki, vice president of Hancom Inc., said, “This project is the first case where Hancom Gooroom, an open OS, is supplied to the education sector. We will expand the open OS ecosystem by continuously upgrading its scalability and compatibility.”
On the other hand, Hancom Gooroom is an OS supported by the Ministry of Science and ICT and developed and released by the National Security Technology Research Institute and Hancom. Hancom Gooroom is based on Debian Linux based on the Linux kernel 4.19, with cloud browsers, image viewers, video players, compression programs, notepad, calculators, and others as basic applications. Hancom Gooroom can be downloaded free of charge from Hancom Inc. website (www.hancom.com) download center, and “Hancom Gooroom” and “Hancom Office” can be downloaded.
