Do you run an Ubuntu server? Or is blog or website hosted on box running on Ubuntu server? If your answer is ‘Yes’ then most probably your server’s location has been marked in the new recently rolled out Ubuntu Server Map.
I’ve checked out how many are in the Philippines and so far there are currently 10 Ubuntu servers running:
Makati City – Near Buendia
Pasay City – Near Libertad
Manila City – Near Recto – Phil. Rabbit Station(?)
Quezon City – Gob-smack in the middle of the EDSA/Quezon Ave intersection
Bulacan – near San Ildenfonso
Pampanga – Quezon
Benguet – near La Trinidad
Davao @ the Ateneo de Davao University campus
From what I’ve been reading online, Ubuntu server is gaining popularity in use. I myself fancied the idea of getting a VPS running on Ubuntu server to host my blogs and online projects. But since I’m finding it difficult to wean myself from a CPanel/WHM environment, it would probably take a lot more before I make the transition. Once that happens, Ubuntu would power my computing needs from desktop/notebook to the servers that run my blogs.
I’m happy to know there’s quite a number of Ubuntu servers running in the country. And maybe someday, I’d have one running and marked in the map as well!
