What’s Ubuntu’s role in OpenStack?

Canonical

on 21 November 2012

Ubuntu is and remains the reference operating system for the OpenStack project since the beginning — making it the easiest and most trusted route to an OpenStack cloud, whether for private use or as a commercial public cloud offering.

No other operating system is as tightly integrated with OpenStack – or as stringently tested. In short, if you want to run OpenStack (and if you’re interested in open cloud infrastructure, you definitely should be) then the best advice is to do so on Ubuntu.
