[News] Ubuntu Already Competes with Big GNU/Linux Server Players

Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu server adoption slow but steady in the data center

,----[ Quote ]
| Although the Ubuntu desktop has won wide popularity, Ubuntu's fairly 
| sophisticated server OS has yet to establish significant inroads in U.S. data 
| centers.  
| In a recent Ubuntu global user survey, nearly a third of the respondents 
| worked for companies with 10 or fewer employees and only 28% worked in the 
| U.S. (compared to 55% from Europe). And the overwhelming majority are using 
| it for basic functions like Web, print and file, database and backup servers, 
| with only a small minority using it for advanced tasks like virtualization or 
| cluster computing. (The low usage for the latter mirror the findings for 
| Linux as a whole in a TechTarget data center survey last year.) The most 
| prevalent Ubuntu industry sectors, unsurprisingly, were technology and 
| education.        


Ubuntu Server's Ambitions No Longer Cloudy - Er, Murky

| A big feature for 9.04 is cloud compatibility, in the form of a) being able 
| to run instances of 9.04 directly on Amazon EC2 clouds and b) being able to 
| provision cloud-computing infrastructures with local servers (Ubuntu 
| Enterprise Cloud). There's a whole raft of other goodies, too, most of them 
| built around making servers that much easier to provision and manage, but the 
| cloud features made me sit up and pay attention.

| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."
