Dell and Canonical have jointly certified a range of PowerEdge servers for Ubuntu Server Edition. The majority of systems have been certified for the current version 10.04 LTS, which Canonical plans to maintain until April 2015. Some older models, have been certified with older versions down to Ubuntu 8.04.

In a blog post, Dell emphasises that Ubuntu Server Edition is not factory-installed by Dell and that Dell doesn't officially support the operating system. However, customers can purchase support contracts directly from Canonical. In July, Dell began to provide Ubuntu packages of OpenManage 6.3, Dell's own server management software.
