Canonical hooks Ubuntu Landscape into Amazon EC2

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.

| "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."
