"Canonical is offering a dedicated, local version of its
Landscape systems management and monitoring server for Ubuntu,
rather than insist you access the service through the company's own
"Canonical will next month launch the Landscape Dedicated
Server, which is a local copy of the current Landscape service. It
will run inside the data center, giving IT managers some piece of
mind about security.
"Launched in March 2008 to help deploy monitor, manage and patch
large numbers of Ubuntu servers or PCs, Landscape wasn't a service
you bought from Canonical. Instead you accessed it through a web
interface and portal."
