LONDON, Jan. 17, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Ubuntu Server community and Canonical are again asking Ubuntu users just exactly how they are using Ubuntu Server Edition -- and in what kinds of organizations.

Ubuntu Server has established itself as a popular operating system in organizations of all sizes performing numerous standard and critical tasks in multiple environments. It has also become one of the most popular operating systems on public cloud environments and has established itself as the core host Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution for private clouds.

This is the third year of the survey. The results of last year’s survey can be found at http://blog.canonical.com/?p=365 and give an overview of the type of invaluable information that can be gleaned from users. The survey [http://survey.ubuntu.com/] will gather more detailed knowledge to:

    * Improve future product releases

    * Prioritize feature requests

    * Guide partnerships to add technologies

    * Drive the focus at the next Ubuntu Developer Summit in May 2011

The anonymous survey takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete and is open to anyone deploying Linux servers today, whether or not they use Ubuntu. The Ubuntu Server Community Team will present the results publicly at the beginning of February.
