According to the Linux Foundation, about 90% of all public clouds run a Linux distribution. In 2004 a new Linux distro with the unusual name “Ubuntu” came on the market, the preview didn’t cause a big stir, it was just another new Debian derivative. And yet the approach of Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, was unusual: “Linux for human beings”. The slogan set the direction for the Ubuntu project and was more than just a phrase. Ubuntu is now the third most popular operating system in the world. The Ubuntu project has helped to get millions of PC users excited about the Linux world and to spread the freedom spirit of the Linux community.
Ubuntu is an easy-to-install economic operating system for your public or private data center. With its Debian core, it is a good server-level solution for easy deployment on your IT infrastructure with very good scale-out performance. The LTS (Long Term Support) version of Ubuntu is released every two years. LTS versions are better tested and enterprise oriented, i.e. for use on servers, cloud servers and multiple desktop installations. Ubuntu Server version 16.04 LTS is based on Linux 4.4 kernel and systemd. The development of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is in the final phase, the release date for the stable version was announced by Canonical on April 26, 2018. In our Developer Community you will find many Ubuntu tutorials waiting for you!
