Submission + - Ubuntu Linux Claims 12,000 Cloud Deployments (

darthcamaro writes: The cloud is more than just hype for Ubuntu. Canonical COO Mat Asay is now saying that they can count 12,000 deployments of the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud. He also things the cloud is where Ubuntu can make money — because to be frank in his view the company for the last five years wasn't setup to generate revenue.

"For the first five years of the company's life, it wasn't set up to make money," Asay said. "The company was set up to make a fantastic Linux distribution and other tools around it and get it out there and get people using it. That was the focus."
