editor's review




Welcome to the Saucy Salamander edition of Ubuntu Cloud Server, an open source software project built around the Ubuntu OpenStack cloud computing platform and designed from the ground up to allow you to deploy Ubuntu in the cloud in a shortest time as possible.

The best cloud computing platform is here

Ubuntu Cloud Server 13.10 was officially announced by Canonical on October 17, 2013 along with several other Ubuntu releases. It will be supported with security patches, bug fixes and software updates until July 2014.

Supporting the 32-bit, 64-bit and ARM Hard Float hardware platforms, the project can be downloaded from its official website as EC2 cloud images, as well as QCOW2 disk images for the QEMU and KVM virtualization technologies.

Additionally, you can also obtain OVF (Open Virtualiztion Format) appliances suitable for VMWare or VirtualBox virtualization programs, a barebone root file system, as well as to launch ready-to-use Amazon Machine Images from the project’s download page.

Here's why Ubuntu Cloud Server is the best

Thanks to state-of-the-art cloud computing technologies like the OpenStack platform, Juju service orchestration tool, MAAS (Metal as a Service) and Landscape system management tool, Ubuntu Cloud Server can be used to build personal cloud servers or deploy Ubuntu on a public cloud.

Windows Azure, Amazon EC2, IBM Cloud, Joyent or HP Cloud are among the best public cloud platforms that support and offer Ubuntu, the world’s most popular free operating system. You can always find detailed information about how to install the Ubuntu Cloud Infrastructure at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuCloudInfrastructure or on the project’s homepage.

Bottom line

Summing up, Ubuntu Cloud Server 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) is Canonical’s greatest server oriented operating system that allows you to deploy Ubuntu in the cloud with minimum effort and in a shortest time as possible, using some of the best cloud computing technologies available.
