FAQ Debian Dedicated Servers


What Are the Advantages of Debian Dedicated Server?

Debian is an OS developed by Canonical. While Ubuntu is basically a fork of Debian with new features, Debian still remains its predecessor.

Debian is an open source OS which means that there are no obligations or commercial considerations for any company or establishment that in any way attempts to influence the development of the project or have a say in the operation of the project.

The idea in Debian is that everyone is equal (both users and developers) while encouraging meritocracy. This is done by giving more responsibility to people who are tested both in philosophical understanding and fundamentals of what Debian is and in technical skills.

The idea and the implementation of it in the context of Debian become even more incredible when you discover that it has been 20 years since the Debian project started. Debian is still as strong as ever, even with all kinds of "commercial" distributions around it.

The Debian project is a "universal operating system". Universal means that all programming languages, software, and people are included. This is an important difference in the sense that Debian puts the social aspect of the project on the same keel as the technical aspect of the project.

The Debian software archive is one of its main advantages over other OSes on the market. The archive has a range of over 50k applications for a single architecture and Debian serves 17 odd hardware architectures (both officially and unofficially), which might be beneficial for the enthusiasts.

To install the whole distribution would require more than 100 GB if all applications are to be installed. This is only for packages, not for sources, nor for the space needed for the database(s) to place user data. But most of the time it can be rather compact if needed. 

The greatest luxury is that Debian is inherently a mix of rolling release distribution with a change/spin at the end. While most distributions have a time-based release cadence, Debian follows a freeze cadence and not an actual release cadence, although some estimates can be made.

This gives Debian the opportunity to release when there is no release critical bugs left. Debian gives enough preparation time for most release critical bugs to be fixed or, if it is not possible to fix them, it is no longer part of Debian.
