Add-on services

Snap creation service


Get three critical apps containerised as snaps by Canonical experts, using best practices and focused on your business and technical needs.

Snapcraft 101 training


Learn about snap design and security, and how to package your existing apps as snaps. Set up continuous integration, testing and delivery pipelines to your fleet. Two days of training over four sessions.


$2,400 per day

Consulting will address topics directly related to Snap Store, Brand Store, Snaps, and Ubuntu Core, as well as help you onboard our technology as part of your complete product lifecycle.

Rapid Prototyping Services

From $10,000

Get a rapid Proof-Of-Concept (POC) image based on the Ubuntu kernel, which includes necessary drivers to initialise and run your hardware and chosen peripherals.

Dedicated Snap Store setup

SaaS edition

Manage and build applications using your dedicated IoT App Store.

Your private, white-label Snap Store includes role-based access controls, complete control of application versions, over-the-air (OTA) updates, and controlled rollouts. We enable integrators and resellers to operate app stores on behalf of their clients.

On-premise edition

Control snap distribution inside your firewall. Cache snap traffic for network efficiency.

The on-premise Snap Store lets your administrators control snap updates and upgrades. Ensure all device traffic goes through a managed communications channel using the Snap Store proxy. Allow devices not connected to a public network to operate smoothly and receive updates in Airgapped Mode, with an option to sign applications locally.

System on a chip, board and device enablement

Give your SoC, board, or device a kernel that’s supported and tested for 10 years. Gain wide application compatibility and developer productivity.

Board enablement services

Ubuntu applications depend on a wide range of kernel features such as security modules, filesystems, and container primitives. Ensure that your device kernel meets Ubuntu application expectations with a Canonical-built custom kernel.

Canonical delivers a custom kernel matching a standard Ubuntu LTS release or interim release with a path to the next LTS.

Ongoing testing and security updates

Canonical will perform continuous security maintenance and testing on your board. When a security issue is fixed in Ubuntu, the fix will be tested on your board.

Update Control can be used to require additional testing and validation by your team. Testing will cover kernel and base system debs and snaps, along with any board-specific tests.

Add-ons to board enablement services

Full disk encryption

Enable full disk encryption with hardware key management and optional key escrow. Choice of cyphers and hardware acceleration for minimal performance impact. Essential for devices with personal information in regulated industries.

Secure boot

Enable secure boot, ensuring that the device will only run its certified workload. Hardware key management devices such as the TPM are used to validate each stage of the boot process, for enhanced assurance of the integrity of the running OS.

Certification of boards and devices

Guarantee long-term security, application compatibility, support and operational consistency with the Ubuntu Certified logo for enterprise-grade devices.

Long-term automated Canonical testing of every update and security patch ensures devices perform reliably over the full lifetime of the certified Ubuntu LTS release. Certified devices must run a Canonical kernel. We require four units of every certified board or device for continuous testing. In the case of devices built with existing certified boards, running their standard certified kernel, we reduce this requirement to two devices.

Certification for devices that include pre-installed snaps can include validation of the integrity of those snaps.

Ubuntu device support for manufacturers

Access Canonical engineering support for customer device engineering and development teams.

Support for device manufacturers enables access to Canonical engineering and techops teams to help troubleshoot and resolve issues in Ubuntu and Ubuntu Core. It covers kernel, device integration, base OS, snap security and update mechanisms, networking, communications and graphics.

During the duration of the contract, Canonical will provide technical support for any Ubuntu image provided to the Customer or any standard release of Ubuntu when installed using official sources and within its life cycle. The life cycle for each version of the Ubuntu image(s) is specified here.
