Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical and Ubuntu Linux, announced in a keynote speech at OpenStack Summit, that Canonical was moving into the hosted private cloud business.
This move isn't as surprising as it might first seem. As Shuttleworth said, Canonical was one of the first Linux companies to back OpenStack. In the three years since, Shuttleworth said, Ubuntu is now the most popular operating system, with 70 percent on public clouds, and more than half of OpenStack cloud deployments using it.
