Ubuntu Advantage for OpenStack

Ubuntu Advantage is our professional support package. It includes access to Landscape, the systems management tool for using Ubuntu at scale, as well as 24/7 telephone support, online support library and legal assurance.

Ubuntu Advantage for OpenStack is available in three flexible packages, to help you to scale your business in the most cost‐effective way.

Per VM per hour

Many public clouds charge for consumption of resources per hour. Now you can apply the same model to your OpenStack cloud.

Cost per fully supported VM per hour USD $0.03

Per server

Annual cost per physical server USD $1,000

Per availability zone

Availability zones in OpenStack separate compute hosts into logical groups and provide a form of physical isolation and redundancy from other availability zones, e.g., separate power supply or network equipment. To avoid having to track your individual machine count — and thereby take advantage of the elastic nature of your cloud as it scales — we offer pricing per availability zone.
