Ubuntu server 11.10 is shaping up to be a fantabulous release! Tons of hot new features are landing the biggest of which would be juju Ubuntu’s new orchestration and service management framework, orchestra for your automated deployment needs, Ubuntu Cloud infrastructure Ubuntu’s new private cloud based on OpenStack with an Ubuntu twist, and the new hotness that is ARM support!
Since we’re very close to the Oneiric release, I’m starting a series of articles about Ubuntu “Server Trenches”. I will be interviewing members from the Ubuntu server team, where you get to read all the juicy details of what the team has been working on. You also get the chance of asking away any questions you may have. I am starting the first article with Robbie Williamson the Ubuntu server engineering manager. He’ll give us a high level overview of Oneiric server features and things the team had worked on this past cycle, as well as future directions. In future articles we’ll zoom-in on features and meet more of the server team engineering members.
Robbie’s article should hit the wire this Thu 6th Oct, now here’s the deal, if you’d like to ask Robbie anything, leave me a comment right here with your questions. Robbie will try to answer as much of your questions as possible.
Early celebration of Oneiric? YES! the party has begun
