Ubuntu Advantage is the professional support package from the experts at Canonical, helping organisations around the world to manage their Ubuntu deployments. It includes access to Landscape, the systems management tool
for using Ubuntu at scale, as well as 24/7 telephone support and the option of a dedicated Canonical support engineer on your premises. Ubuntu Advantage subscription tiers are based on the size of your deployment and the support you need.
“We worked very closely with Canonical. Their support has been invaluable in the development, deployment and support phases of the project. ”

Ubuntu Advantage: what’s included?
Systems management: Landscape
With the Landscape systems management tool, you can automate updates and manage physical, virtual and cloud-based systems from a single interface. It's easy to set up, easy to use and requires no special hardware. It features:
- Management at scale
- Deploy or rollback security updates
- Compliance reports
- Role-based access
- Informative monitoring
Canonical's Global Support & Services team provides around-the-clock coverage for Ubuntu deployments all over the world. Telephone support gives you access to engineers with first-hand experience of your issues, while the online portal lets you track the progress of cases in real time.
Exclusive to Ubuntu Advantage subscribers, the Canonical Knowledge Base is an online library of articles on technical issues including security, migration and networking.
From basic office tasks to complex development work, Ubuntu Advantage gives your organisation all the support you need to deploy and manage Ubuntu.
Whether it’s for basic server workloads or high-availability clustering, Ubuntu Advantage has you covered.
Ubuntu Advantage offers support and management tools to keep your business productive in the cloud.
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.
