Linux distribution vendor Canonical will soon release an updated version of its production-ready server operating system, the company announced Monday.

Ubuntu 10.04 Long Term Support (LTS) Server Edition will be ready for downloading, for no charge, beginning on April 29, along with the desktop edition of 10.04.



Like other Canonical LTS releases, this Linux kernel-based OS has been designed for users who require long-term support and maximum stability, said Matt Asay, the company's chief operating officer. It will be supported with free maintenance and security updates for five years. (Canonical's non-LTS releases typically are supported for 18 months.)

Typically, Canonical releases a LTS server edition every two years, the last one being Ubuntu 8.04.

This will be the first version of an LTS server to feature the Eucalyptus cloud platform, which is part of the company's Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, Asay said. This software allows an organization to run a cloud service from an internal server rather than go with a public cloud provider.

This release will also feature a number of other new packages, such as the CouchDB document-oriented database, Puppet configuration management software and Django Web framework.    [More...] [Comments...]
