Ubuntu Server: The Linux OS Dark Horse

,----[ Quote ]
| So, what is it that sets Ubuntu apart from 
| its competitors? First, Ubuntu's parent 
| Linux distribution is Debian. Debian, 
| otherwise known as Debian GNU/Linux, has a 
| faithful following due to its stability, 
| its apt-get packaging system and its 
| commitment to free software as defined by 
| the Free Software Foundation.
| Second, Ubuntu has a dedicated (paid) 
| development force behind it and a worldwide 
| community of contributors who work together 
| to update and maintain its code and 
| security updates. This should give you 
| comfort that bugs, security flaws and 
| enhancements will come rapidly and 
| regularly to protect your systems and the 
| data they collect and store.
| Third, you have the assurance from 
| Canonical that your systems have 24x7 
| support available in case of failures or 
| errors that require their assistance. You 
| can rely on their expertise and rapid 
| response for those mission-critical 
| workloads when you need it most. 


Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud Deployed on Intel Hardware

| There has been a lot of talk about the 
| 'cloud' lately and, though the term is 
| largely misused and perhaps a little too 
| hyped, there's definitely something to this 
| new way of thinking about online 
| applications and the infrastructure to 
| serve them, the so-called cloud computing. 
| Canonical, the company behind the very 
| popular Ubuntu Linux distribution, 
| recognizes the potential of the emerging 
| market and has partnered with Intel and 
| Eucalyptus to promote its Ubuntu Enterprise 
| Cloud (UEC) offering as part of Intel's 
| Cloud Builder program.



Ubuntu Server 9.10 - Review and Commentary

,----[ Quote ]
| We've already taken the time to do an Ubuntu
| 9.10 review as well as Kubuntu and Xubuntu but
| these were all the desktop editions. Today, we
| decided to try something different and take a
| look at Ubuntu 9.10 Server Edition and see how
| easy it would be to setup and configure a LAMP
| (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
