America's Second biggest telecoms company has announced that it is switching to Ubuntu for its infrastructure.

AT&T, which has been around in its current form since 2005, has selected Canonical, the company behind the Ubuntu Linux operating system, "to be part of an effort to drive innovation in the network and cloud", beating rivals such as Microsoft Azure and IBM to the punch.

John Zannos, vice president of cloud alliances and business development at Canonical, said: "This is important for Canonical. AT&T’s scalable and open future network uses the best of Canonical innovation.

"AT&T selecting us to support its effort in cloud, enterprise applications and the network provides the opportunity to innovate with AT&T around the next generation of the software-centric network and cloud solutions.
