Certified Ubuntu on HP Server

Feb 19, 2009

HP and Canonical are working together to get Ubuntu certified for HPs Proliant servers.

According to a study by Canonical (registration needed), the popularity of the Ubuntu server system is far greater than that of Debian, Centos, Red Hat or Novell, and a diagram in the Ubuntu blog also shows the extensive proliferation of HP hardware.

HP and Canonical regard the outcome of the study as an opportunity to intensify their cooperation on the server market. As a result, all Proliant HP servers are to issue an Ubuntu certification, and, as Matt Murphy says in his blog, the two companies have promised to work even closer together to optimize compatibility of HP servers and Ubuntu.
