Ubuntu is a popular, community-supported, free and open-source Linux operating system used by developers and companies around the world. Companies use Linux when they prefer free or open-source operating systems with long histories, great community support, and high customizability. People consider Ubuntu as a Linux distribution in particular if (among other reasons) they value ease-of-use, frequent updates, and high performance in their operating systems.
This playground is a safe and secure sandbox environment for you to explore your own ideas, follow along with Cloud Academy courses, or answer your own questions all without the need to install any software on your local machine. The extended duration of this playground provides you with ample time to play to your heart's content. You should also feel free to take risks, try unfamiliar Linux tools and commands, and in general learn more about working with Linux, even if it means running into a dead end and needing to start the lab over. Have fun in the playground!
This lab playground is intended for:
- System administrators
- Cloud engineers and architects
- SysOps / DevOps engineers
- Anyone who uses Linux
- Familiarity with the basics of Linux is helpful but not required
