According to Canonical's Martin Stadtler, the new Dell OpenStack-Powered Cloud Solution will run on the upcoming server release of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin", scheduled to arrive on 26 April "with the latest Linux and OpenStack technologies". Stadtler says that users of Dell's Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution will receive enterprise-level support for their clouds through Canonical's Ubuntu Advantage support programme.
