[News] Ubuntu Aims to Make GNU/Linux SaaS Its Own

Managed Services Meet Linux Clouds

,----[ Quote ]
| So where do Canonical, Ubuntu and Landscape potentially fit into the managed 
| services picture? Canonical pitches Landscape primarily for corporate IT 
| managers that want to manage virtual or physical Ubuntu servers. The remote 
| management efforts can involve in-house servers or Ubuntu systems living in 
| the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).    



Canonical hooks Ubuntu Landscape into Amazon EC2

| Commercial Linux distributor Canonical has launched the third release of its
| Landscape systems management and monitoring service for the Ubuntu Linux
| distribution. And with Landscape 1.3, the tool can now reach out and manage
| Ubuntu images on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) utility.


Managing Ubuntu Linux on the cloud

| It's actually pretty darn easy to run a virtual operating system on a server
| or on the cloud. The real trick is managing them. That's why I'm excited that
| Canonical, Ubuntu's Linux commercial backer, recently released Canonical
| Landscape 1.3, an Ubuntu network systems management and monitoring service
| that will let you control your Ubuntu servers no matter whether they're on
| your desktop or a few thousand miles away on the Amazon EC2 (Amazon Compute
| Cloud).


Ubuntu One Beta – Views so far

| I hope that users will be supporting this service.  The reason for that is
| twofold.  Firstly Canonical has done much for Linux as an operating system
| and I think that without Mark Shuttleworths efforts Ubuntu (and indeed the
| umbrella of Linux) would not be as popular as it is today.
| Looking at some of the comments on Twitter, it appears that peoples love of
| Ubuntu is making Ubuntu One a natural choice and a way to show support for
| the distro.  Tell me, ever seen this sort of “love” from a Windows user?If
| this service is a way Canonical can get a return from its OS and ensure a
| future of upgrades to a great distro, then thats no bad thing.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
