Canonical Ubuntu Advantage License is for businesses not for personal usage.

Will this license provide me any Ubuntu Bug Support and upgrades.

Yes. It may provide you a custom patch if you encounter a bug, but in general Ubuntu updates are available free of charge - unlike SUSE or RHEL's.

Yes we need it for business purpose only, so if we buy it how can we apply it to our currently installed Ubuntu OS and can we use same license for provisioning more than one VM. – user280704 May 12 '14 at 8:37
