Latest version of popular operating system allows businesses to build on proven Ubuntu server technology
LONDON, October 26, 2009: Canonical today announced the general availability of Ubuntu 9.10 Server Edition for free download on Thursday 29 October. Ubuntu 9.10 Server Edition introduces Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) as a fully supported technology. This is an open source cloud computing environment, based on the same Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as Amazon EC2, that will allow businesses to start taking advantage of the possibilities of private clouds. Private clouds allow businesses to reap the benefits of flexible compute environments while avoiding the security, regulatory or policy restrictions inherent in pushing data onto a public cloud.
