The Canonical Distribution of Ubuntu OpenStack is the fastest and easiest way to build an OpenStack cloud. It is based on Ubuntu, the most popular platform for OpenStack deployments, and the leading Ubuntu OpenStack reference architecture. It brings together all the components included in the Ubuntu OpenStack Distribution, plus the convenience of automation through the intuitive, web-based UI, and the the choice of which components to use for hypervisor, storage, and networking.
|Relevancy to NFVI/VIM||
Ubuntu is one of the most popular operating system for OpenStack. Designed to be the fastest, most reliable way to build and launch enterprise-scale clouds from provisioning to deployment and management.
Ubuntu OpenStack is a fully integrated, optimized combination of Ubuntu Server LTS, OpenStack Kilo, Juno or Icehouse and powerful tools to deploy, manage and scale cloud and datacenter networks. With new support for the LXD hypervisor, Ubuntu can provide 15 times the density for KVM for workloads, tremendously improving cost efficiencies in the cloud.
