OpenStack Autopilot

The quickest and easiest way to install and manage Ubuntu OpenStack is to use Canonical’s OpenStack Autopilot. You can try OpenStack Autopilot for free, but you need to purchase Ubuntu Advantage and Landscape on-premises when you use more than 10 machines.

  Price
Up to ten machines Free
Annually, per server $1,500

Landscape on-premises server

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. Requires all the desktops, servers and nodes it manages to have either an Ubuntu Advantage or Landscape seat.

  Price
Landscape on-premises server $2,000
