Turn your software into enterprise-grade solutions
Give your customers peace of mind. Deliver applications on any cloud, with built-in resilience, automation and security.
Explore our partnership opportunities for software vendors.
Drive your solutions with a simple, flexible operations platform
Deploy, integrate and manage your solutions at scale, on any infrastructure using your own software operator.
Canonical's Charm SDK allows you to build operators and package your operational knowledge as code, so you can automate more and focus on business value.
Reuse operators for popular
open source applications
Integrate with rock-solid
Metal-as-a-Service provisioning for data centres: Canonical MAAS
Metal-As-A-Service (MAAS) provisions and deploys any OS image on any hardware: MAAS is the essential foundation for private cloud infrastructure.
Cost-effective private cloud with Charmed OpenStack
For workloads and solutions integrated with OpenStack, consider integrating with Charmed OpenStack. Leverage Canonical's tooling to streamline OpenStack deployment, modelling, implementations, and orchestration.
Canonical Kubernetes for multi-cloud operations
Canonical Kubernetes is charm-driven, CNCF-conformant and supported by Canonical. Boost developer productivity and business innovation by charming your software and integrating with Canonical Kubernetes.
Deliver fully secured and supported applications
The most comprehensive subscription for open source software security.
Ubuntu is a popular and reliable base image for building custom container images. It's also available as hardened container images, with stable tracks from development to production. With an optional Ubuntu Pro subscription, you get 10 years of guaranteed security maintenance from Canonical's trusted repositories.
Ubuntu: the most popular Linux on public clouds
Ubuntu is the world's most popular operating system (OS) across public clouds. Thanks to its security, versatility and policy of regular updates, Ubuntu is the leading cloud guest OS. It's also the only free, cloud OS with the option of enterprise-grade commercial support and compliance for regulated environments.
Get 10 years of stability for infrastructure, OS and applications
Ubuntu Pro expands Canonical's security maintenance to 23,000 packages beyond the main OS covering critical infrastructure packages and many open source applications. Weekday or 24/7 support is also available on top of the Ubuntu Pro subscription to help you ensure business continuity.
Hardened long term supported (LTS) OCI images
The LTS Image Portfolio provides ready-to-use base images free of high and critical CVEs. The same secure infrastructure that produces the popular Ubuntu releases also builds these images. Images are updated automatically when apps or dependencies are fixed.
Minimal, secure and efficient containers
Create chiselled Ubuntu OCI images and get your containerised applications optimised for performance.
Lean OCI images
Reduce the attack surface, improving your security posture by shipping only what's needed.
Leverage performance benefits in addition to better security and a smaller image size, with faster downloads and start-up times.
Consume significantly less resources, saving on energy bills and promoting greener infrastructures.
Combine Distroless and Ubuntu
Chiselled Ubuntu images are created using high-quality components from the Ubuntu distribution and are updated in accordance with the same release cycle and with the same support guarantees (5-year LTS, 10-year ESM plus optional weekday or 24/7 support).
No operating system-level packages or libraries that are not required at runtime. No package manager or shell (apt or bash, resulting in a minimal footprint).
