Setup Ubuntu For Cloud Server
Ubuntu Server also includes a network-based provisioning system that uses Ubuntu’s Metal as a Service (MAAS) tool. Based on the industry-standard PXE network-boot protocol, MAAS enables the rapid, automated provisioning of many systems simultaneously.
Canonical’s Landscape further integrates MAAS technology with enterprise-class support for systems management and compliance requirements.
