Ubuntu and Amazon Web Services
Ubuntu and Amazon are working closely together to create the best experience of the world’s most popular cloud OS, on the world’s most popular public cloud. Offering certified Ubuntu Cloud Guest images and the option of world-class professional support, Ubuntu on Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers the best developer experience possible.
Ubuntu on AWS
AWS is a key member of Canonical’s Ubuntu Certified Public Cloud program. This means that they work closely with Canonical on many levels to ensure an optimal Ubuntu-based user experience on their cloud and provide Certified Ubuntu Cloud Guest images.
Certified Ubuntu Cloud Guest images are official images of Ubuntu Server, produced and maintained by Canonical, and optimised to run on partner clouds such as AWS. So users will always have access to the latest Ubuntu features, backed up by the system’s extensive security and compliance accreditations. They are centrally managed and delivered automatically, with bugs and vulnerabilities fixed fast.
