Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, delivers the open OS for next-generation, web-scale applications. From utilities to telcos to enterprise environments around the world, Ubuntu and Canonical provide a stable foundation and a comprehensive toolset for innovation.

Ubuntu is used by enterprises in many of the largest scale-out environments, and IBM's Power Systems are known for their ability to run in many of the most demanding enterprises, where reliability and availability are essential. These worlds are coming together, as many of today's companies – organizations that built their businesses on a scale-out model – are seeking greater levels of performance and a more robust computing environment. Likewise, most large enterprises have new requirements for cloud and scale-out as they innovate with new workloads.

The combination of Ubuntu and Power Systems brings the benefits of cloud, scale-out performance, and reliability to both worlds with unprecedented levels of performance. Power Systems support up to four times as many workloads as comparable x86 platforms, and Ubuntu brings a strong, open ecosystem and a rich toolset for cloud and scale-out deployments.
