"Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux has
partnered with Dell to bring its Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) to
business users on Dell's PowerEdge C2100 and C6100 rack servers.
"UEC is made up of Ubuntu server instances running on the
open-source Eucalyptus cloud platform. This Ubuntu cloud system is
designed to work as a private cloud, but it can also be used with
public Amazon EC2. While Ubuntu is usually though of as the Linux
for the masses, UEC is a pure business IT offering."
