Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"In some ways, ZaReason and Ubuntu are going into uncharted
waters together. So far, Canonical's Ubuntu Server Edition
initiative has yielded mixed results. Our WorksWithU 1000 survey --
which tracks Ubuntu deployments worldwide -- confirms that
companies are embracing Ubuntu Server Edition faster than the
mainstream media realizes. And disruptive software companies like
Unison are porting their server applications to Ubuntu.
"However, Ubuntu is a work in progress on the server. Sun
Microsystems is the only major server maker to endorse Ubuntu
Server Edition. So far, IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Dell (one of
Ubuntu's most vocal desktop supporters) are taking a wait-and-see
approach to Ubuntu Server Edition."
