Ubuntu Linux Review

Flexible, secure, easy to install, and there is good community support

What is our primary use case?

Ubuntu is mainly required for work services, your domain name services, and internet public-facing services.

What is most valuable?

It is flexible. It's the best of both worlds.

It's secure.

There is a lot of content available online that can help you, if you have an issue. There is good community support to help you with any issues you may encounter.

There are several manuals online that are free and available to help you.

What needs improvement?

The repository needs improvement. 

The repository needs to be kept up to date all of the time.

For how long have I used the solution?

With my previous employment, I have used Ubuntu Linux for approximately five years. 

It is not currently being used but has been used within the last year. 

We were not using the latest version. It was between version 16.4 and 18.4.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I use a mix of different solutions, two of which are Ubuntu Linux and CentOS.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward and it is only ten minutes maximum to deploy.

We have one engineer to maintain this solution. It is not complex. It's something you install, configure, and walk away from.

What about the implementation team?

We did not use a consultant, we completed the installation ourselves.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We don't pay any fees.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution, and it works quite well.

I would rate Ubuntu Linux a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
