It is available for download as QCOW2 disk images for the QEMU and KVM virtualization technologies, OVF (Open Virtualization Format) appliances, cloud images for the Amazon EC2 cloud platform, as well as a root file system. It's supported on the 64-bit, 32-bit and ARM Hard Float architectures.
Getting started with UCS
Ubuntu Cloud Server can help you build your own private cloud system powered by Ubuntu OpenStack or use it on a public cloud, such as HP Cloud, Amazon EC2, IBM Cloud, Windows Azure or Joyent. The project provides users with a complete set of cloud computing tools like MAAS (Metal as a Service), Juju and Landscape.
You should use Ubuntu Cloud Server to efficiently build an OpenStack cloud in minutes, deploy Ubuntu in well known public cloud platforms using certified cloud images, as well as to plan, create, administer and support your cloud system at scale.
