Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Dell has released two servers for the U.S. market that have been customized to run Ubuntu-based cloud services. The company has outfitted its PowerEdge C2100 and C6100 servers with Canonical's Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, an implementation of the Eucalyptus private cloud software that runs on the Ubuntu Server Edition operating system.

WTF is an "Enterprise Cloud Server" how does it differ from any other Linux distro running LAMP?

I guess it has the same or similair software (it implements the same 'API') which runs on Amazon cloud system. Thus you can run your software locally or at Amazon and switch between them any time you want.

You should check:

The thing is that this sever is ready to create cloud instances just as if you were doing the same in Amazon (the API thing, you know)

It's a private cloud, just as it says. So instead of installing stuff to Amazon's setup, you have your own, running on servers in your server room.

I think it's quite cool.

Dell's cloud servers have synergistic 2.0 web relevance.

Maybe they are just lamp stacks with some additional software that you could install yourself but discussing technology in such clear terms isn't good for marketing or tech articles.
