angry tapir writes "Dell has released two servers for the US market that have been customized to run Ubuntu-based cloud services. The company has outfitted its PowerEdge C2100 and C6100 servers with Canonical's Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC), an implementation of the Eucalyptus private cloud software that runs on the Ubuntu Server Edition operating system."

    There is much better option for the cloud servers and it is a Own Cloud http://owncloud.org/index.php/Main_Page [owncloud.org]

    It is totally open source, free software, developed for single users, privat corporations and public use.
    User is not tied to Canonical propietary and privat ecosystem.

    ps. Ubuntu is not a operating system. Linux kernel in the Ubuntu is the operating system. Ubuntu is just a software system, one of the few hundreds of the Linux distributions. People has better futures when staying away from Canonicals products.

    We purchased 16 C2100s in August. If you like being a Dell beta tester, have at it. The LSI RAID controllers they have in these things are, for a lack of a better word, complete crap. Technically, it's probably the drivers ... but until they have a working driver for linux that doesn't lose its mind and reset the card randomly (thus making your volumes disappear for a minute or two), I suggest staying away. Far away.

    paid support with canonical? Debian isn't a corporate entity like red hat.
    Another reason being adoption of ubuntu having a desktop mindshare (Of % of linux desktops) so it's a single platform to support for workstation and server - for dell techs
