The Ubuntu Cloud Archive

Canonical’s Ubuntu Cloud archive allows users the ability to install newer releases of OpenStack on an Ubuntu Server (starting with 12.04) as they become available up through the next Ubuntu LTS release. Bug processing and patch contributions will follow standard Ubuntu practice and policy where applicable.

In order to allow for relatively easy upgrades, and still adhere to Ubuntu processes and policy, Canonical elected to have archive.canonical.com be the home of the Ubuntu Cloud archive. They will enable update paths for each OpenStack release.

  • e.g. Enabling “precise-folsom” in the archive will provide access to all OpenStack Folsom packages built for Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS (binary and source), any updated dependencies required, and bug/security fixes made after release.

As of now, Canonical has no plans to build or host OpenStack packages for non-LTS releases of Ubuntu Server in the Ubuntu Cloud archive.
