Ubuntu Server Breakdown

What has helped Ubuntu grow into a popular Linux distribution? Learn more below!

What is Ubuntu?

Ubuntu is a high-performance Linux operating system and distribution. Ubuntu has earned a well-deserved reputation because of its focus on usability, robust features and reliability. Ubuntu, released in 2004, is based on Debian’s package management and its philosophy to be “secure by default”. These characteristics are just some of the reasons why Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux distributions to date. Its large community of users ensures great support and guarantees that its developers are continually seeking to improve this already popular Linux distribution. This is particularly evident with Ubuntu updates made every 6 months. Long-term support (LTS) Ubuntu releases, on the other hand, are made on a 2-year cycle. These short updates ensure users get the best and most secure features. Each Ubuntu release is given an alliterative, 2-word name. The first word in the name is an adjective while the second word is a mythical creature or an endangered species.

Ubuntu's popularity has grown to the point that it is the most popular operating system on web servers. Over 20% of the web uses Ubuntu, and there are over a billion devices that use it as well. There are also now over 75 active Llnux distributions based on Ubuntu. Some of the largest organizations in the world like Uber, Lyft and Google use Ubuntu. Google even has their very own custom Ubuntu distribution.

Ubuntu is released as a Desktop, Server and Core editions. Each of these three editions are able to run on either a computer or on a virtual machine (VM). Ubuntu is developed by Canonical, a privately held, United Kingdom software company. Mark Shuttleworth put together a team of Debian developers to create Canonical. Their goal was to develop a user-friendly, Linux-based desktop. Ubuntu is also backed by a community of developers. Canonical is in charge of each Ubuntu release. The name “Ubuntu” is translated roughly from the African Nguni philosophy to mean “I am what I am because of who we all are”. This is certainly an appropriate name for Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Server Mission

Ubuntu has a two-fold mission. Their first goal is to gather and deliver all of the world's free software and make it readily available to everyone, with the same terms for all. Their second goal is to help lower the costs of Ubuntu development including support, maintenance, operations and management. This is done by Canonical, the founding company behind Ubuntu, who works towards the continual improvement of their platform. Ubuntu will always be free of charge to use.

Ubuntu Server Security

A key advantage of the Ubuntu distribution is its security protocols. Ubuntu's goal is to be “secure by default”. This means that the default security settings are the highest security settings available, even if they are not the easiest user settings. The sudo tool is available for enhanced security. Sudo allows for temporary user privileges to run administrative tasks, while root remains inaccessible by users with less knowledge. This helps prevent inadvertent changes or the creation of security holes. Ubuntu also ensures that many of its network ports remain closed to help stop hack attempts. Ubuntu features graphical user interface (GUI) to configure its built-in firewall protection. Finally, Ubuntu also supports full encryption of the disk, private directories and home directory.

Ubuntu Server Software

Ubuntu is loaded with software to help you get the most out of your server including:

  • Databases
    • MySQL
    • PostgreSQL
  • Web Server
    • Apache2
    • PHP
    • Squid
    • Ruby on Rails
    • Apache Tomcat
  • LAMP Applications
    • Moin Moin
    • phpMyAdmin
    • WordPress
  • Version Control
    • Bazaar
    • Git
    • Subversion

Each of these solutions, and more, can be installed, upgraded, setup and removed with Ubuntu's powerful package management system. Ubuntu offers over 45,000 software options to choose from. They can be installed via package management systems via kpkg and Apt.
