Cloud storage solutions can provide public sector organisations with a high degree of flexibility when it comes to their storage needs, either public cloud based, or in their own private clouds. In our previous blog post we looked at the economic differences between these two approaches. In this blog we will explore some of the security best practices when using cloud storage, so that you can ensure that sensitive data remains securely stored and compliance objectives are met.

If you’ve been reading my blogs for the past two years, you know that the automotive industry is probably the most innovative one today. As a matter of fact, some of the biggest company valuations revolve around electric vehicles (EVs), autonomous driving (AD) and artificial intelligence (AI). As with any revolution, this one comes with its set of challenges.

Regular patching is essential for maintaining a secure environment, but there is no one-size fits all approach for keeping your Linux estate safe. So how do you balance the frequency of updates with operational stability? There are strategies for enabling security patching automations in a compliant and safe way, for even the most restrictive and regulated environments.

The automotive industry is a vast and complex sector that includes all companies and activities involved in manufacturing vehicles or their components (such as engines, electronic control units (ECUs) and bodies). However, this sector is growing even more, as it experiences a technological revolution driven by new technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data analytics.

Canonical’s Managed Solutions team is proud to announce Firefighting Support, a new service for organisations that manage their infrastructure by themselves but need experts on call for troubleshooting needs. Firefighting Support provides managed-service-level support to customers who graduate away from fully managed services or are under security regulations too stringent to grant environment access to a third-party.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about Canonical's release schedule for Ubuntu and its security updates, and how you can use this information to set optimal manual and automated security patching maintenance intervals. There are a variety of tools, such as Livepatch, Landscape, Snaps, and command line utilities like unattended-upgrades that provide security patching automation capabilities. We’ll cover how each one works, and how you can combine them for maximum benefit. We’ll also cover the nuances between reboot recommended and reboot required.

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.
