On Premises Server available

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

The advantage of a SaaS 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 server on premises running behind your firewall, Landscape can be installed on private hardware. This is functionally identical to the SaaS, but you control the hardware.

Whether Landscape fits your needs better as a SaaS or a server on premises, it’s only available with a subscription to Ubuntu Advantage.
