Cloud Computing is large pools of virtualized hardware capacity. But it’s more than that. Every user who wants to run a server in the cloud needs a suitable operating system in the form of an image. Otherwise, hardware resources flounder like a fish out of water. Or more accurately, they don’t flounder at all – not even a little bit ;).
The Open Telekom Cloud currently offers around 25 different operating systems as public images. These include, amongst others: Oracle Linux, Windows, CentOS, SUSE Enterprise Linux, OpenSUSE and the largest group, Ubuntu. Ubuntu is always in demand by public Cloud clients. In fact, over 70 percent of all instances in large public clouds run on this variant of Linux. In October, Fedora and Debian were added.
With OpenStack as the Cloud operating system and the multitude of Linux variants, Open Telekom Cloud is consistently satisfying the demand for Open Source and Open Standards invoicing.
Now the Ubuntu provider Canonical has officially certified Open Telekom Cloud as a “Canonical certified Public Cloud” which means Open Telekom Cloud has satisfied the requirements for the use of Ubuntu.
With Ubuntu certification, Open Telekom Cloud now offers its users in Germany full Canonical support. According to Canonical, Open Telekom Cloud is currently the only German public Cloud provider that offers the complete range of Ubuntu images.
Ubuntu is currently available in version 16.04 as well as 14.04, 14.04.1, 14.04.3 and 14.04.4
