The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points. Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 30 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What do you think of Ubuntu Linux?

Valuable Features It's a free and open source software-defined storage (SDS) that runs on various platforms such as Ubuntu, CentOS, RHEL, IBM Z, among others. It can be used for a bulk object including as an alternative to OpenStack Swift, Swiftstack, and others. Can also be configured for the block as well as the file. • Improvements to My Organization Hmmmm…….Good question. • Room for Improvement Ease of use, ease of management, ease of deployment, ease of troubleshooting, resiliency, automation, and performance. • Use of Solution I have used various versions of Ceph off and on at different times, going back several years. • Stability Issues Yes, on the other hand, deploy in a controlled environment, stay within the “box”, and it works well. • Scalability...

What is most valuable?

Although Ubuntu is based on Debian Linux, it ships with (more or less) current software. In addition, there a are a lot of community-based repositories which can easily be added. Since Ubuntu provides LTS releases with 5 years of support, you... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Ubuntu powers many servers in most of the companies I worked for. Maintaining them was - in most cases - easy and painless.

What needs improvement?

The rpm-based distributions (such as Suse, Red Hat, CentOS, Fedora) ship with support for awesome system management software (Spacewalk, just to name one example). Ubuntu often provides *some* support for these tools, but it is very rarely... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have developed an internal Document Management System around Ubuntu and MySQL, which came at no extra cost and our efficiency has improved dramatically. We now scan and save all our documents and correspondence.

What needs improvement?

As a product, I can't think of anything much because we are yet to fully utilize the product and it has met all our expectations. The technical training is the one that needs to be updated regularly and also engagement of more technical... more»

What is most valuable?

I like it that Ubuntu is actually free and was one of the first with a decent hardware recognition during installation. It is still free, where some other distributions are no longer free and with a large and active community. A large... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I have used it professionally on some occasions but mainly to maintain the home network. Long Time Support has helped me to prevent regular updates on stable servers.

What needs improvement?

The Linux for desktop marketing could be improved but that is not only for Canonical/Ubuntu an issue. How could these areas be improved? All parties (commercial, idealogical and non-commercial (I.e. the rest)) together could be a force to... more»

What is most valuable?

Ubuntu MATE provides me with a complete OS experience, so I don't have to switch between multiple OS for my work; I can do my development, usual browsing and accessing tools on the same machine. I mostly use the OS for development purposes by... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We moved from Ubuntu 12 to Ubuntu 16 recently, owing to the various new fixes that were shipped with its new version. Ubuntu is the standard deviation OS in our environment and we have built our own image that the developers can just download... more»

What needs improvement?

Stability is a big issue in my opinion. I have found version 12 to be more stable. I have tried various desktop environments and MATE seemed most stable to me.

Because they are cheap and they do not charge me for traffic.

How has it helped my organization?

I need to upload a very large amount of data do Google Servers and Digital Ocean doesn´t charge me for traffic like Amazon does. This was the best option.

What needs improvement?

Compare it to Amazon AWS and you will see how much they can grow. Every company wants to grow as much as possible, or even more than AWS. So compare Digital Ocean with AWS and you will see how much they can grow. I don´t mind using AWS... more»

What do you think of Ubuntu Linux?

Valuable Features The Ubuntu LTS server is very stable. I use Ubuntu on most of my servers and I'm very pleased. • Improvements to My Organization Updates on packages are the main reason that I use the Ubuntu server. With this tool, my servers are up-to-date and secured. It is easy to use. The Ubuntu server is good for new admins. We use it for HAProxy load balancers, to database, and web servers with high availability. • Room for Improvement I think it should only be for the desktop. Maybe it is good idea to say goodbye to Unity and say hello again to Gnome. • Use of Solution I have been using Ubuntu for five or six years. I use it mostly on web servers. • Stability Issues It is very stable. For all those years, I never had any problems. • Customer Service and...
