Ubuntu is considered one of the most popular operating systems for running virtual private servers inside the Cloud. Being built over the Debian Linux distribution, Ubuntu shares its commitment to principles of open-source software. As a massively collaborative project with a thriving community, it offers continually developing solutions with agile, secure and versatile performance capabilities.
At Jelastic PaaS, Ubuntu-based Elastic VPS is delivered by means of a certified stack template and provides all the functionality of an independent virtual machine (like security guarantees, cost efficiency and root permissions granted), combining it with the Ubuntu’s reliable and robust ecosystem.
