Ubuntu Server is Ubuntu tailored for networks and services, and it’s just as capable sharing files on your home network as it is running within a Hadoop cluster.
Unlike the installation of Ubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu Server does not include a graphical installation program. Instead, it uses a console menu-based process. If you’d rather install the desktop version, take a look at our Install Ubuntu desktop tutorial.
This guide will provide an overview of the installation from either a DVD or a USB flash drive, suitable for anyone with an interest in running their own server. For a more detailed guide on Ubuntu Server’s capabilities and its configuration, take a look at our Ubuntu Server help documentation.
