Debian 11 now available on all our Clouds

by SW Team

We are happy to announce the release of the latest stable version of Debian: “Debian 11 Bullseye”. From now on, all our customers can deploy their Cloud with this version of the GNU / Linux distribution, Debian.

What is Debian?

Debian GNU / Linux is a free operating system, developed by volunteers who collaborate over the Internet. It was born in 1993 with the idea of creating a free operating system using Linux as a kernel.

Its dedication to free software, its non-commercial nature, and its open development model sets it apart from other GNU / Linux distributions. All its commitments are detailed in the so-called Debian Social Contract.

Debian always seeks to have maximum stability in each of its versions, carrying out many months of tests, before offering a new version to the community.

Thanks to the availability of Debian 11 in all Cloud instances, now, you can work with more updated repositories and, therefore, with more recent versions of your favorite software, libraries and applications or that you require for your project.
