Description of the work
Over the last couple of years, Ubuntu has became the reference platform
for creating Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud data centers, and
as the best guest OS to deploy in public clouds. Because Ubuntu is free
and open-source, the ability to scale is not limited by licenses, which
is great news for cloud builders. Canonical, the Company behind the
Ubuntu project, also offers a full range of optional services to help
organizations in their cloud deployments, which means that you can take
a Free approach to your projects without letting aside the reassurance
of a formal relationship with enterprise grade SLAs.
