Ubuntu appears to be one of the most popular operating systems for running virtual private servers inside the Cloud. Being built over the Debian Linux distribution, Ubuntu shares its commitment to principles of open-source software and offers continually developing solutions with flexible, secure, and versatile performance capabilities.

At the platform, Ubuntu-based Elastic VPS is delivered with all the functionality of an independent virtual machine (like security guarantees, cost efficiency, and root permissions granted), combining it with Ubuntu’s reliable and robust ecosystem.
