News: Cloud optimized Ubuntu 16.04 LTS images available
We have created a highly optimized cloud template based on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS that makes full use of all cloud features while offering maximum performance and already has all updates and patches included.
Check out the new template available for VM instance deployments, the name is "Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS", the default volume-size is 8GB. Direct root login is disabled, please use either SSH-keys set up in your control panel or log on using the password provided and username "ubuntu" (you can get root using sudo thereafter, also "sudo passwd" to enable the root account by setting a password).
This cloud optimized template is also compeletely ready for live scaling of ressources on the fly.
