Canonical and Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth had this to say about his company’s new launch: “Ubuntu is the primary platform for cloud – public, private or hybrid. In this release, our third LTS with deep roots in cloud, we raise the bar for efficiency and orchestration at scale. That’s why companies are adopting Ubuntu as they move to the cloud computing era.”
