Ubuntu Comes to ServInt Flex VPS

by Devon Rutherford  • 

At ServInt, we believe in offering customers the products they want. CentOS is our primary OS offering on our Flex VPS line simply because we believe it’s the best server platform out there. That being said, a lot of you have asked for other options, especially Ubuntu. Well, we hear you. Starting today, you can order your favorite ServInt Flex products with the Ubuntu operating system installed

Ubuntu has gained a lot of popularity since its introduction in 2004. That’s mainly because it’s a great desktop platform, and many people worldwide learn on it.

After talking to countless customers about their desire to use the platform they know, we’ve decided we’d let all you Ubuntu fans do just that.

CentOS will remain the default OS for all managed hosting platforms, but now Ubuntu users can take advantage of ServInt’s great stability, uptime and performance on the platform they already love.

ServInt is currently offering Ubuntu with the latest long-term support (LTS) version — 12.04.1 — in both 32- and 64-bit iterations, and as of roll out, the Ubuntu OS over VPS will be offered unmanaged. Visit our product pages to order today.

  1. Thank you, ServInt, for listening. I am pleasantly surprised to see this happen so quickly. Another reason to stay with ServInt. By unmanaged, do you mean it comes without a control panel?
