Canonical strongly believes that the future of automotive will rely on open source to define and run the next generation of vehicles. To drive this transition, state-of-the-art cybersecurity and functional safety are critical. To learn more about the industry’s specific constraints, we are actively involved in several automotive consortiums and are contributing to automotive-related standards.

Cloud repatriation is undoubtedly one of the hottest trends in the cloud infrastructure space as of 2023. It enables organisations to regain control of their cloud spend, workloads and data. According to a report on cloud repatriation by 451 Research group, 48% of IT decision makers confirmed that they had moved their applications away from hyperscalers to other venues in 2021.

Kubernetes vs OpenStack is a common dilemma that organisations face when considering the modernisation of their IT infrastructure. Both are well-established open-source technologies for building cloud infrastructure, and both bring tangible benefits, especially when used in combination. Yet, they differ significantly and need to be properly bundled to feel like a fully-integrated solution. What does this mean in practice? Let’s take a look!

If you’ve been reading our recent automotive blogs and white papers, you know that the automotive industry is highly complex and regulated, especially when it comes to functional safety and cybersecurity. Standards and consortiums help ensure that companies provide a common framework and follow compatibility and interoperability approaches. Usually, these standards define constraints in how specific components and systems are designed or how they should work together.

Welcome to the final post of this three-part series on real-time Linux. As market adoption of real-time computing continues to rise, real-time in the Linux kernel is emerging as a valuable solution on the software side. A real-time Linux kernel on its own, however, will not necessarily make a system real-time. We clarified this point in Part I and listed the common misconceptions and stack components.

As support ends for CentOS, the HPC community is left to decide what platform to migrate to. For many, the decision comes down to cost and support. This roundtable brings together HPC experts and energy industry leaders in HPC to discuss the impact of the CentOS reitirement on the energy sector, HPC and AI/ML technology, and how companies can navigate this transition. This discussion took place on June 28, 2022.

Machine learning(ML) is a branch of artificial intelligence that focuses on developing algorithms that can learn using data. While ML gets a lot of attention, implementing ML models (their deployment and maintenance) requires much more than programming skills.

Microk8s cluster deployment on AWS via CAPI In this demo, we will be deploying a microk8s cluster on AWS. The cluster consists of 3 control plane and 3 worker nodes. The deployment is performed using Cluster API (CAPI). For the full demo, join us at MWC Barcelona 2023 where you'll be able to see Spectro Cloud's Palette automation engine deploying and managing Canonical's MicroK8s Kubernetes distribution on Ubuntu OS with real-time kernel. Witness the capabilities to create, scale, upgrade, and destroy Kubernetes clusters, with demonstrations on AWS and Edge use cases.

It’s no secret that developers prefer to use open-source software in their projects. However, the Log4Shell attack or the more recent PyPl crypto miner packages have taught us that there are questions around how it should be managed. At Canonical we have been dealing with open-source security issues since the very first release of Ubuntu and way before the topic became number 1 on every CISO priority list. In this video, our team discusses how your company can manage these challenges and lay the software foundation of a successful cybersecurity program.

What knowledge, tools, and processes do you need to keep your open-source software free from vulnerabilities and threats? Many open-source projects are well-maintained by software vendors or individuals. Yet, studies show that 80% of codebases used by enterprises contain vulnerabilities (half of which are high-risk vulnerabilities that can be exploited). Hackers scan for outdated systems that contain vulnerabilities, which they then exploit by deploying targeted malware. In this webinar, we will discuss best practices for keeping your systems up to date.

From the smallest startups to the largest enterprises alike, organisations are using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to make the best, fastest, most informed decisions to overcome their biggest business challenges. But with AI/ML complexity spanning infrastructure, operations, resources, modelling and compliance and security, while constantly innovating, many organizations are left unsure how to capture their data and get started on delivering AI technologies and methodologies.

Traditional development methods do not scale into the IoT sphere. Strong inter-dependencies and blurred boundaries among components in the edge device stack result in fragmentation, slow updates, security issues, increased cost, and reduced reliability of platforms. This reality places a major strain on IoT players who need to contend with varying cycles and priorities in the development stack, limiting their flexibility to innovate and introduce changes into their products, both on the hardware and software sides.

Private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud, multi-cloud... the variety of locations, platforms and physical substrate you can start a cloud instance on is vast. Yet once you have selected an operating system which best supports your application stack, you should be able to use that operating system as an abstraction layer between different clouds.

Container technology has brought about a step-change in virtualisation technology. Organisations implementing containers see considerable opportunities to improve agility, efficiency, speed, and manageability within their IT environments. Containers promise to improve datacenter efficiency and performance without having to make additional investments in hardware or infrastructure. Traditional hypervisors provide the most common form of virtualisation, and virtual machines running on such hypervisors are pervasive in nearly every datacenter.

Big Software, IoT and Big Data are changing how organisations are architecting, deploying, and managing their infrastructure. Traditional models are being challenged and replaced by software solutions that are deployed across many environments and many servers. However, no matter what infrastructure you have, there are bare metal servers under it, somewhere.

We deliver open source to the world faster, more securely and more cost effectively than any other company.

We develop Ubuntu, the world’s most popular enterprise Linux from cloud to edge, together with a passionate global community of 200,000 contributors. Ubuntu means 'humanity to others'​. We chose it because it embodies the generosity at the heart of open source, the new normal for platforms and innovation.

Together with a community of 200,000, we publish an operating system that runs from the tiny connected devices up to the world's biggest mainframes, the platform that everybody uses on the public cloud, and the workstation experience of the world's most productive developers.


  • Ubuntu: The new standard secure enterprise Linux for servers, desktops, cloud, developers and things.
  • Landscape: Updates, package management, repositories, security, and regulatory compliance for Ubuntu.
  • MAAS: Dynamic server provisioning and IPAM gives you on-demand bare metal, a physical cloud.
  • LXD: The pure-container hypervisor. Run legacy apps in secure containers for speed and density.
  • Juju: Model-driven cloud-native apps on public and private infrastructure and CAAS.
  • Snapcraft: The app store with secure packages and ultra-reliable updates for multiple Linux distros.

Drive down infrastructure cost, accelerate your applications.
