System76 announces servers with Ubuntu 7.10 and Canonical support services

This article was last updated 5 years ago.

System76 Inc., a leading provider of Ubuntu pre-installed laptops and desktops, today announced the first available line of certified, pre-installed servers featuring Ubuntu 7.10 Server Edition — delivering a new choice in quality server platforms including standard three year parts replacement warranties and three years of operating system updates.

Ubuntu 7.10 availability on System76 servers fulfills a broad range of data center needs including email, file and print services, virtualization, and customer relationship management. The pedestal or rackmount servers feature Quad Core Intel XEON Processors, up to 8 TB of storage, and up to 32 GB of memory.

System76 also announced the availability of Ubuntu Server support from Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu. Available directly from System76, Canonical Global Support Services provides customers with expert advice, reduced cost of ownership, and maximized return on investment. Canonical certified the compatibility of System76 servers and its operating system through rigorous validation and testing. This allows the company to provide an assurance against regressions in support.

“The availability of 9 to 5 or 24/7 Canonical support extends our server line to those businesses requiring robust support for their mission critical applications,” said Carl Richell, President of System76.

“From the beginning, System 76 has been at the vanguard of making Ubuntu available on rock-solid, certified hardware, first with laptops and desktops, and now with servers,” said Jane Silber, chief operating officer of Canonical. “This announcement attests to our partnership, to the increasing demand from partners and customers for the Ubuntu 7.10 Server Edition, and to the fact that Ubuntu is ready for the enterprise.”
