Ubuntu: Ubuntu Server 12.04 hardware support


What is the hardware support like for Ubuntu on servers? Can I install Ubuntu 12.04 on any server and expect everything to work?

In particular, I'm looking at SuperMicro servers (model: SM 6027R-72RFT+) and a Huawei Server (mode: TECAL RH 2285 V2)

I'm aware of the certified hardware list on Ubuntu site, however it is restricted to HP/DELL/Lenovo brands, and is a very limited list. Should I follow that list when choosing a Ubuntu Server (ver: 12.04) or do I have a more free choice?


Given the nature of the hardware, it's a pretty safe bet that Ubuntu Server would work just fine on them. The Huawei model didn't have any detailed specs that I could find; the SuperMicro model did have a "supported OS's" list that included Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Typically, Enterprise-class hardware is well-supported with most Linux-based distros.
