Now Available: Ubuntu 16.04

Starting today we’re pleased to announce for support for Ubuntu 16.04 on the File Sanctuary Cloud!

Ubuntu 16.04 is the latest LTS (long term support) release of Ubuntu. An LTS release means that maintenance and security updates will be released for this version for the next five years.

We’re supporting Ubuntu 16.04 in both 64-bit and 32-bit editions, with 64-bit being the new default, and for those of you that like to have a hosting control panel, you can opt to have Virtualmin pre-installed to help you manage your Cloud Server.

  • Linux Kernel 4.4.0
  • Apache HTTP Server 2.4
  • Nginx 1.9.15
