Mirantis and Canonical pledge fully supported Linux-to-OpenStack configuration for enterprises. Which is exactly Red Hat’s sweet spot with RHEL and Red Hat OpenStack. And so it goes.
Pundit Simon Wardley poo-poos any notion that Microsoft should buy Red Hat. Canonical, he writes, is a far more strategic choice.
Canonical founder and space traveler Mark Shuttleworth came on the Structure Show this week to discuss Ubuntu’s role as the operating system of choice for cloud computing. As OpenStack takes precedence over the operating system, he argues, Red Hat’s licensing can’t last.
On this week’s Structure Show, Canonical’s Mark Shuttleworth on why we have to move on from the operating system wars to get to cloud goodness.
As Red Hat Summit gears up, Canonical drops news of a new Ubuntu Linux release — but with most of the focus on OpenStack.
Ubuntu “Saucy Salamander” 13.10 may be the first properly mobile-friendly version of the distro, but there are usability issues, an app shortage and — as yet — no ability to make it run like desktop Ubuntu when hooked up to an HDMI monitor.
OpenStack may be on the rise, but its competitors often point to the complexity of setting it up. Ubuntu Server 13.10, due out next week, aims to eliminate that concern through the introduction of so-called charm bundles.
Canonical may not have raised enough money on Kickstarter for its Ubuntu Edge phone but Ubuntu Touch is alive and kicking. The company is pushing hard to test the software for phones and tablets to launch alongside Ubuntu 13.10 next month.
The Ubuntu Edge may have broken a record for the most money pledged in a crowdfunding campaign, but ultimately it failed to reach its $32 million goal by a long shot. A focus on enterprise would be smart now.
Canonical’s hybrid mobile-PC concept device has overtaken the Pebble smartwatch’s $10.27 million haul to become the biggest crowdfunding pledge recipient. The Edge campaign will probably still fail, but at least Canonical’s idea has received validation.
