The front page offers an edited stream of rolling Ubuntu and cloud news. These are hand picked articles and blogs that are low volume and with a high signal to noise ratio, if you’d like to be updated, but don’t like being flooded with every little detail. You can follow the front page’s RSS feed at http://cloud.ubuntu.com/tag/featured/feed/. The front page lets you check out latest tweets around ubuntucloud as well. If you’re wondering where those hand-picked items are picked from, they are picked from the Ubuntu cloud planet page, which is a large aggregator collecting Ubuntu cloud news.

A Documentation page provides a high level overview of important and useful docs pages. Most content linked to is actually on the Ubuntu wiki, which means not only do you benefit from the information there, but you also can help make it better! The Ubuntu community collaborates around editing and updating the wiki content to make sure it’s always up2date and useful. The docs talk about UEC, the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, a private cloud open-source product based on Ubuntu and Eucalyptus. Other topics covered include Cloud-Init an Ubuntu originated cloud configuration bootstrapping technology, as well as various guides to using and customizing official Ubuntu cloud images. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to check out the videos for a bunch of really nice short screencasts demo’ing Ubuntu cloud common use cases.
