UBUNTU 17.04 TCP BBR

1-click Azure Deployment

Overview

TCP BBR has significantly increased throughput and reduced latency for connections.

BBR – Bottleneck Bandwidth and Round-trip propagation time is a new congestion control algorithm developed at Google. Congestion control algorithms that decides how fast to send data.

Ubuntu is built on Debian’s architecture and infrastructure, to provide Linux server, desktop, phone, tablet and TV operating systems
Ubuntu’s goal is to be secure “out-of-the box”. By default, the user’s programs run with low privileges and cannot corrupt the operating system or other users’ files.
For increased security, the sudo tool is used to assign temporary privileges for performing administrative tasks, which allows the root account to remain locked and helps prevent inexperienced users from inadvertently making catastrophic system changes or opening security holes.
