Which modules do I need? A summary of ClusterCS supported modules.

When adding new modules, you have to keep two things in mind: The modules you need (Left side) and the server(s) you want them on (Right side).

ClusterCS currently offers installation and management for 17 modules:
1. apache - the world's most used web server. Highly recommended in most environments set on serving web content and a core component of the LAMP stack.
2. clamav - an open source antivirus engine for detecting trojans, viruses, malware & other malicious threats
3. fail2ban - a service that scans log files to detect possible intrusion/malicious attempts, and temporarily blacklists the IPs. Useful against brute-force attacks
