Leading Linux Players Rapidly Shift Their Emphasis to the Cloud


Quote:
This week, not only is Red Hat touting its success at getting a number of notable enterprises to choose its Linux platform and OpenStack offering for deployments, but Canonical is rolling out Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and highlighting it as the best way to build out an OpenStack cloud environment. These efforts underscore that leading Linux platforms and cloud computing are going to be joined at the hip going forward, and the players behind them will need to offer top-notch support and compatibility. .

Among the attractions to Red Hat's Enterprise Linux platform, it serves as a good basis for an OpenStack cloud deployment and also comes with top-notch support. These are the same things Canonical is emphasizing with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, being released this week. Canonical notes that the platform brings "a new level of reliability, performance and interoperability to cloud and scale out environments with support and maintenance for five years."

Back in 2011, I made the point that support will differentiate cloud platform providers, and we're seeing that play out now.

“Ubuntu is the primary platform for cloud – public, private or hybrid. In this release, our third LTS with deep roots in cloud, we raise the bar for efficiency and orchestration at scale. That’s why businesses are adopting Ubuntu as they move to the cloud computing era,” said Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu and Canonical, in a statement.
