Ubuntu adds ease of use and efficiency, with a typical deployment taking just minutes for a fully secured and configured deployment of standard services. Today there is an array of vital services that can be deployed in this was including mail, web, DNS, file serving or database management. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) is also available at set-up. This simplicity is because Ubuntu Server Edition takes a different approach to how it delivers packages. The basic configuration and integration work is done before installation so that the user only needs to select which option they want.
We recognize that the administration and upgrade costs are another significant part of IT business spending. Therefore, we’ve made our server as easy to maintain as possible, which means that you can set it up and then forget about it.
Ubuntu Server Edition is free, and always will be. There is no ‘for pay’ edition that contains extras. We know that license fees are only the starting point in making a TCO argument in your business, therefore, consider the merits of Ubuntu Server Edition.
Our product life cycle ensures that you can perform upgrades of your systems, in place, time after time, at the pace you choose, without compromising the work you have put in setting them up.
Every 6 months a version is released that contains the latest packages and updates. This is maintained for 18 months from release with an upgrade path to the next 6 month release version.
For greater robustness and easier planning, every 2 years a Long Term Support (LTS) version is released that is maintained for 5 years. This is a target platform for ISVs looking to build solutions on Ubuntu and also for larger deployments in need of a more stable release.
- 虛擬化 Virtualization
Ubuntu Server Edition offers a variety of virtualization technologies for use as a host or guest operating system. There are open source and proprietary solutions to meet every need. KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) is our open source virtualization solution; it’s efficient and comes with a suite of management tools. Additionally, we have established premier relationships with VMware and Parallels to offer a range of options to meet every requirement.
- 區域網路儲存區 SAN
Ubuntu Server Edition brings the power of inexpensive shared storage to your servers. More and more organizations rely on the throughput of Gigabit Ethernet to build up their SAN (Storage Area Network) for data or virtual machine storage. Using relatively inexpensive hardware, the performance can be quite amazing. Two key storage technologies feature in Ubuntu Server Edition: iSCSI and DRBD. They enable administrators to attach network storage to a server. These low level protocols can be used in conjunction with a variety of file systems and high availability capabilities to set-up scalable and robust server configurations.
Ubuntu Server Edition is optimized for 32 or 64-bit multi-core processors. The Kernel team is working closely with Intel and AMD to implement the latest features the processors allow, and integrate the latest drivers the chipsets permit. This includes AMD’s V, Cool & Quiet and Hyper transport as well as Intel’s VT, IOAT and EIST.
