Ubuntu 10.10 launch in October drew strong partner interest
Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, announced today the signing of several significant partnerships following the release last month of Ubuntu 10.10.
Boxed Ice, Opsview, Riptano, Unoware, Vladster, Wavemaker and Zend all joined as Canonical Software Partners, their applications delivering solutions for business and personal use, and supported by commercial companies providing the highest level of service.
Canonical Software Partners work closely with the development teams who deliver Ubuntu, and thus ensure that installation and operation are of the highest quality.
“In the past year, we've seen an increase in partners joining our ecosystem, an indication of Ubuntu's worldwide acceptance and growing-use in the enterprise,” said Matt Asay, COO of Canonical. “We welcome our newest partners and encourage our customers to take advantage of all that they offer.”
