eRacks, a premier rackmount server and Open Source system vendor, today announced a channel partnership with Canonical Ltd., the commercial sponsor of the award-winning Linux OS, Ubuntu.

eRacks customers can order hardware pre-loaded with Ubuntu via the eRacks online ordering system, and will benefit from a full service offering, including complete operating system installation, custom hardware configuration and post sales support.

Joseph Wolff, CEO of eRacks said, “eRacks is dedicated to providing organisations with full control of their own business infrastructure. Increasing demand from our customers, and the recommendation from our engineers that Ubuntu is unbeatable for ease-of-use, and its compatibility with peripherals such as printers and network cards, makes Ubuntu the perfect partner for eRacks.”

“Both eRacks and Canonical are committed to bringing the benefits of Open Source to a wider business audience. Our partnership will help business customers to deploy and maintain Ubuntu, resulting in increased productivity and reduced costs,” commented Chris Kenyon, Business Development Director at Canonical Ltd.

Ubuntu is Open Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are
free to customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs. The Desktop Edition can be deployed as a general-purpose workstation, thin client, or engineering workstation. The Server Edition provides a well integrated platform and simplifies the deployment process of new servers with any of the standard Internet services such as e-mail, web, file serving and database management.

The eRacks agreement is in line with Canonical’s objective to bring the benefits of Open Source to a wider business audience by delivering world-class support and assistance through a growing network of specialist partners.
