Ubuntu 14.10 "Utopic Unicorn" Dekstop 32bit & 64bit
When people think about Ubuntu, they generally think about the desktop. The new release of Ubuntu 14.10 — while it certainly does include a new and improved desktop — saves its biggest improvements for its cloud and server versions.
This new release, Utopic Unicorn, features what parent company Canonical calls “the fastest, most secure hypervisors on bare metal, as well as the latest in container technologies with Docker v1.2 .”
The company also claims that “Ubuntu offers user-level container control, the ability for any user to spin up containers without the need for superuser privileges, providing higher security, privilege separation and greater system robustness.” This is a feature that’s being explored in the just released Docker 1.3 . The point of container support is, of course, so you can run more application instances on the same server or cloud than you can using vanilla virtualization solutions such as KVM.
The Unicorn also integrates many popular cloud technologies such as Cloud Foundry; ElasticSearch; big data’s Hadoop with Hive and PigLatin; and real-time big data analytics with Apache Storm
