Integrate with your existing systems

Ubuntu Server Edition fits easily into your existing client and server architecture, integrating with commonly-used tools for authentication and service access. We understand the importance of technologies that you can easily integrate, which is why we spend a lot of time making sure Ubuntu blends easily with your infrastructure.

Virtualisation made easy

Ubuntu Server Edition is an extremely popular platform for virtualising data centres. Ubuntu Server provides KVM as the core option for both host and guest virtualisation. A wide variety of open-source and proprietary technologies are also used in conjunction with Ubuntu Server.

Cloud computing

Ubuntu Server Edition provides everything you need to build your infrastructure on the leading public cloud (Amazon EC2) or your own private cloud. You can use the same images and tools to control them both. Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud brings you the elasticity and immediacy of cloud computing from behind the security of your firewall and it makes it easy to migrate between public and private clouds.

Built-in security

Ubuntu Server Edition is secure to the core, built on the renowned security of the Debian operating system. Ubuntu’s security team works closely with their Debian and Linux counterparts to make sure that any vulnerabilities that emerge are recognised and dealt with swiftly. Ubuntu’s free and fair ethos means that patches are made available to all users, not just enterprise clients or subscribers.

Easy administration

Ubuntu Server is designed to make systems administration easy and efficient. At the heart of Ubuntu Server is Debian, the Linux distribution famous for being written by systems administrators for systems administrators. So many of the routine tasks that consume a great deal of a systems administrator’s time are simplified and automated.
