Canonical

Canonical is the company behind Ubuntu, the leading OS for container, cloud, scale-out, and hyperscale computing. 65% of large-scale OpenStack deployments are on Ubuntu, using both KVM and the pure-container LXD hypervisor for the world’s fastest private clouds. Canonical provides enterprise support and services for commercial users of Ubuntu.

Canonical leads the development of Juju, the model-driven operations system, and MAAS (Metal-as-a-Service), which creates a physical server cloud and IPAM for amazing data center operational efficiency. Established in 2004, Canonical is a privately held company.

“New workloads being deployed in volume today -- data analytics, machine learning, private IaaS -- are perfectly matched to Arm’s focus on aggressive economics, increased choice and task-specific acceleration. A broad ecosystem partnership program, underpinned by the unique strengths of the architecture, is exactly what the industry needs to move on from its current monoculture. At Canonical we pride ourselves in helping accelerate this change, delivering working solutions to customers that cut through the hype and focus on solid, sustainable value.“
