It’s been a big year for Canonical and Ubuntu, with big releases and lots of controversy highlighting the last six or so months. The company is steaming ahead with its plans though, and has announced that they’re joining the Linaro Enterprise Group (LEG).
The announcement also comes with news that in 2013, Canonical will have Ubuntu Hyperscale availability on ARM V8 chips. “Canonical has been supporting our work optimising and consolidating the Linux kernel since our founding in June 2010”, said George Grey, CEO of Linaro. “We’re very happy to welcome them as a member of the Linaro Enterprise Group, building on our relationship to help accelerate development of the ARM server software ecosystem.”
You can read the entire announcement on the Canonical blog. “The growth of hyperscale computing will drive massive changes in the data center,“ commended Christian Reis, VP of hyperscale computing. “Ubuntu Server is ready for this shift to low power, high density servers. Ubuntu Server, with support for ARM technology, is the leading platform and innovator for hyperscale computing with a four year track-record and strong roadmap for the future.”
