Canonical Announces Landscape Dedicated Server

More good news from Canonical, the company responsible for developing the very popular Ubuntu operating system, reach us today. The company has announced that it will enhance the local control an enterprise has on its deployments via a new architecture and installation option for Canonical systems management and monitoring system for Ubuntu machines.

I say “more good news” because just the other day we were reporting that Canonical announced the launch of new support services for Ubuntu desktop users – the home user as well as the business user. The support services offering comes in three flavors and should address any issues the Ubuntu desktop user has, ranging from small ones to enterprise level ones.


Getting back to Canonicals’ announcement, all that lengthy presentation above refers to a Landscape Dedicated Server. Thanks to Landscape, any business that has deployed multiple instances of Ubuntu on both servers and desktop computers, will be able to manage and maintain their systems in a more efficient manner. This is because Landscape, for any Ubuntu deployment, reduces the cost of ownership and improves resource efficiency.

Landscape provides a web interface from which packages and security updates can be deployed to all machines registered on it - all done with a simple click. The Landscape Dedicated Server will provide, for physical as well as cloud-based Ubuntu instances, all the package management, auditing and monitoring capability of the hosted service.

Landscape Manager with Canonical, Ken Drachnik, comments: “System Administrators’ jobs are hectic enough. Landscape reduces errors associated with routine updates by automating the management of Ubuntu systems – freeing up time to work on more important tasks. “When released in late September, Landscape Dedicated Server will give customers the flexibility to download package updates from their own private repository or the Ubuntu public package repository.”

Two Landscape architectures will be made available this September:
1. Installed on-site
2. Hosted as SaaS (software as a service)
