Dedicated server available

Landscape is available as a hosted service delivered via the internet, or as a dedicated server installation behind your corporate firewall. In both cases the console can be accessed in any modern web browser.

The advantage of a hosted service is that you don’t have to buy or support extra hardware. Updates and new features are delivered automatically, with no need for installation management.

If you’d prefer a dedicated server running behind your firewall, Landscape can be installed on private hardware. This is functionally identical to the hosted service, but you control the hardware.

Whether Landscape fits your needs better as a hosted service or dedicated server, it’s only available with a subscription to Ubuntu Advantage.
