TurnKey Core - Debian GNU/Linux with Batteries Included
TurnKey Core is the base operating system which all TurnKey GNU/Linux solutions share in common. It is commonly deployed standalone as a convenient starting point for custom system integrations. Benefits include automatic daily security updates, 1-click backup and restore, a web control panel, and preconfigured system monitoring with optional email alerts.
Base Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux 9 (Stretch).
Build formats: Deploys on bare metal, virtual machines (e.g., OpenStack, VMWare, VirtualBox, LXC, KVM, Xen) and in the cloud.
1-click backup and restore (TKLBAM): smart backup and data migration software saves changes to files, databases and package management to encrypted storage which a system can be automatically restored from.
Dynamic DNS (HubDNS): Associates your IP with a custom domain or the free *.tklapp.com domain.
Logical Volume Management (LVM): Instead of installing to a fixed size partition, a Logical Volume is first created by default, and this may later be expanded, even across multiple physical devices.

Command line power tools
Smart, programmable bash shell completion: helps you get more done with fewer keystrokes.
