This simply deploys the Ubuntu Cloud/Server image


This charm provides a blank Ubuntu image. It does not provide any applications other than a blank cloud image for you to manage manually, it is intended for testing and development.


Step by step instructions on using this charm:

juju deploy ubuntu

You can then ssh to the instance with:

juju ssh ubuntu/0

Scale out Usage

This charm is not designed to be used at scale since it does not have any relationships, however you can bulk add machines with add-unit:

juju add-unit ubuntu      # Add one more
juju add-unit -n5 ubuntu  # Add 5 at a time

You can also alias names in order to organize a bunch of empty instances:

juju deploy ubuntu mytestmachine1
juju deploy ubuntu mytestmachine2

and so on.

Known Limitations and Issues

This charm does not provide anything other than a blank server, so it does not relate to other charms.


This charm has no configuration options.
