All of the v14.1 appliances are available for immediate launch in the cloud via the Hub. Amazon MarketPlace builds are on the way too although no ETA at present. All the other builds (e.g. ISO, OVA, Xen, etc.) can be downloaded from their respective appliance pages (eg. LAMP, WordPress Node.js etc). Alternatively the entire library can be downloaded via one of our mirrors.

No Juju for you! Ubuntu's Not Invented Here syndrome

Today Brian emailed me to share his enthusiasm for the Ubuntu Juju project, developed by Canonical, the company that makes Ubuntu.

Brian is a good friend that has been advising us on all matters TurnKey practically since the project began. His advice and feedback is always well informed and insightful so even when I already have my own opinions on the matter, I still take the time to look into his suggestions carefully. Thanks Brian!
