Dell Teams With Ubuntu in Linux Cloud Play

Ubuntu counts computing giant Dell as a fan. In the past, Dell has tapped Ubuntu Linux to power some of its desktop PCs, but now the technology will find a home in Dell's server business.

Specifically, Dell is incorporating the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) technology in its PowerEdge C2100 and PowerEdge C6100 servers.

"It is the first offer that involves Ubuntu Server Edition at Dell," said Nicolas Barcet, Ubuntu Server product manager.

Ubuntu's UEC technology, backed by lead commercial sponsor Canonical, offers users the ability to run their infrastructure in the cloud, either as a private or even public deployment.
