About Ubuntu

From its first release in October 2004, Ubuntu has become the most popular version of Linux by building on top of the innovations provided by Debian and adding its own focus on a smooth desktop experience. As a result, Ubuntu has shaken up the perception of Linux as a desktop system, motivating many other Linux distributions to re-address their own desktop strategies and to invest more effort into providing an easy to use and satisfying desktop system.

Since 2006, Ubuntu have also provided a server system which builds on the technologies that underly Ubuntu's desktop success. It has become very popular with those who prefer the Debian package management system and enormous repositories of ready to use software, while providing more up to date software, adding its own innovations that make Ubuntu the easiest Linux distribution to use and breaking traditions by integrating Ubuntu management tools and supporting infrastructure.

More recently, Ubuntu have led the way for Linux distributions in cloud computing and virtualisation by developing tailored versions of Ubuntu for cloud platforms such as Amazon EC2 and including tools for using Ubuntu as a hosted platform with Eucalyptus or developing your own Eucalyptus cloud.

Transitiv offer support, consultancy and training for Ubuntu as a desktop, server or cloud platform. In particular you may be interested in consultancy for Ubuntu on the Amazon EC2 cloud.
