What is Ubuntu Server?
This is the lean server and cloud version of Ubuntu, the world’s favourite free operating system. Ubuntu has been adopted as a trusted server platform by large and small organisations alike. It powers some of the world’s biggest websites, and it’s the most popular OS for cloud deployments everywhere. Whether you’re deploying a fanless home server or a fifty-thousand node rendering cluster, you’re in good company with Ubuntu. It’s easy to install, maintain and includes free security updates.

Metal as a Service
Ubuntu comes with the world’s largest selection of pre-packaged server software, so you can deploy web, email, file and database servers with ease. The new Metal as a Service (MAAS) deployment system brings cloud semantics to the bare metal – deploy complex systems easily onto your server clusters, scale them up and down and connect them to the cloud, all through a web interface.
Your server must have at least 128 MB of RAM and 1 GB of disk space. This 64-bit edition will run on AMD64 and Intel x64-based computers.
