Official Ubuntu Cloud Guest from Canonical Now Available on Amazon EC2


We’re pleased to announce that official Ubuntu Cloud Guest Images are now listed on the Amazon EC2 quick start. Users can now find and launch official Ubuntu Cloud Guest Images right from the Amazon EC2 management console. This significantly simplifies access to Ubuntu on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and provides users with more options for support and services to build and deploy cloud applications on a reliable guest operating system.

Official Ubuntu images from Canonical give users the assurance that they are getting certified, up-to-date images with the option for full commercial support, legal assurance and systems management capabilities (through Ubuntu Advantage). As more companies shift their computing infrastructure to the cloud, it is important that their servers be supported, managed and kept up to date with critical security patches in the same manner as on-premise systems. Official images provide assurance that you have the same feature and support lifecycle whether you are deploying Ubuntu in the cloud, in your data center or in hybrid style deployments.

Canonical provides a number of tailored options for commercial support for Ubuntu including Ubuntu Advantage. Ubuntu Advantage provides support to deploy, manage and monitor a production environment while offering significant operational and cost savings. Ubuntu Advantage also includes the Landscape systems management tool for managing cloud and on-premise based Ubuntu servers from a single console, lowering your management and administrative cost in the cloud.

You can find more information about support offerings for Amazon Web Services on the Canonical web site.

Important announcements about Ubuntu Cloud Guest are made on the low traffic Ubuntu Cloud announce mailing list as well as on Twitter @UbuntuCloud.
