LinMin™, maker of award-winning IT automation software LinMin Bare Metal Provisioning™, today announced its support for the provisioning and imaging of systems running Ubuntu 10.04 Long Term Support (LTS) Edition, released by Canonical every two years.

LinMin supports the deployment and imaging of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on servers, blades, PCs, Virtual Machines and other form factor devices. LinMin’s functionality in servicing Ubuntu systems can be integrated into IT applications such as control panels and orchestration engines as well as invoked remotely with a browser.

“Canonical welcomes LinMin's support of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server to accelerate its adoption in hosting, cloud, IaaS and corporate data centers worldwide," said Matt Asay, COO of Canonical. "LinMin Bare Metal Provisioning empowers our customers to quickly deploy, repurpose and recover Ubuntu on large numbers of servers, blades, PCs and virtual machines faster and more reliably than with conventional methods.”
