Ubuntu Server receives positive reviews

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu isn’t just for desktops. Behind the scenes, corporate IT managers have put Ubuntu to work on servers. Don’t believe me? Well, I can name names. I can also tell you up front that Ubuntu Server gets high marks for its corporate support; easy backups, installs and upgrades; documentation, and more.

So I set out to find some IT pros who could talk about Ubuntu Server, which wasn’t hard. I just asked, “Who’s using Ubuntu?” in a SearchEnterpriseLinux.com newsletter. Here are some respondents’ views of Ubuntu Server, both positive and not-so-positive.

In the past, Linux has gotten dinged for poor corporate-level support; but Canonical Ltd. — Ubuntu’s corporate parent — got support right with Ubuntu’s Long Term Support (LTS), according to Jim Read, an IT administrator for a financial institution. “We have stuck with 6.06 LTS, and it has worked well,” Read said. If he changed support providers, he’d have to do major system reconstruction, but LTS 6.06 hasn’t given him a reason to consider a change.

Another common point in Ubuntu’s favor is its ease of use, particularly with upgrades and backups.
