This week Canonical announced that Ubuntu 12.04 has now been certified across the latest generation of Dell 12G servers powered by the Intel Xeon E5.
The Ubuntu 12.04 release debuted in April of 2012 as a Long Term Support (LTS) Linux distribution. A core focus for Ubuntu 12.04 is the cloud and in particular the open source OpenStack platform.
“By some measures Ubuntu 12.04 LTS was the first LTS release of Ubuntu Server that began replacing many of the workloads run by traditional, s supported enterprise Linux server operating systems,” David Duffey, director of technical partnerships at Canonical, told ServerWatch.
“Certainly our supported users started demanding that ‘Certified’ solutions were more than a one-way support statement and wanted to know that a commercially Certified Ubuntu Server was jointly supported,” Duffy continued.
