Automotive software developers often face challenges when they want to try out their software on target hardware. Which can cause issues since multiple teams have to share limited hardware resources and prototype benches. With the microchip shortage, it’s become even more difficult to get hardware benches for testing and debugging software.

Full disk encryption, FDE, has long been an integral part of Ubuntu’s security strategy. Its mission is straightforward: to mitigate the risks of data breaches due to device loss and unauthorised access, by encrypting data while stored on the computer’s hard drive or storage device. For 15 years, Ubuntu’s approach to full disk encryption relied on passphrases for authenticating users.

Few creatures from mythology have captured the imagination of mankind quite like the legendary Minotaur. A half-man, half-bull behemoth that is said to guard the halls of the impenetrable labyrinth of Crete. The ancient sagas stated that only the bravest of warriors would be able to match its incredible strength and escape its mystifying maze.

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.
