Canonical, the makers of Ubuntu, will have a major presence at this year’s KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference brings together adopters and technologists from leading open-source and cloud-native communities. It takes place Oct. 11-15 in Los Angeles and with a virtual option.
Ubuntu is the foundation for the three public cloud providers’ managed Kubernetes services – Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKS) – which is why it is the only OS that can seamlessly support workloads on any of them.
Canonical’s main activities at the conference will include:
Oct. 12 Operator Day. This is a virtual, interactive community event with talks and hands-on technical sessions by Canonical experts and guests. It will begin with a keynote by Canonical founder and CEO, Mark Shuttleworth, entitled “Kubernetes is taking the world by storm… so what’s next?”
The event also will feature a series of technical demos and user case studies by the Canonical team, customers, and partners showcasing the importance of model-driven operations. The latter enable enterprises to simplify application management regardless of the environment they run on – Kubernetes, virtual machines, or bare metal. In addition, five industry thought leaders from the CNCF, AWS, Google, and more, will join a panel discussion on the state and future of cloud-native and Kubernetes.
Operator Day goes from 8 a.m to 6:50 p.m. EDT on the 12th, and will repeat in two time-zone friendly blocks for EMEA and the Americas. Tickets are complimentary and available at https://hopin.com/events/operator-day-hosted-by-canonical-october-2021.
Ubuntu 21.10. Canonical expects to announce the Beta release of the Ubuntu 21.10 Desktop, Server, and Cloud products. Ubuntu 21.10, code-named “Impish Indri,” continues Ubuntu’s tradition of integrating the latest open-source technologies into a
high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.
This release includes images from not only the Ubuntu Desktop, Server, and Cloud products, but also the Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie, UbuntuKylin, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu flavors.
Updates on Canonical’s work with Kubernetes. Canonical will highlight the extent and range of companies and industries using Ubuntu and Kubernetes to power their innovation. Ubuntu is the #1 OS for Kubernetes across the clouds, featuring strong security, best-of-breed infrastructure and app lifecycle automation, top price-performance, conformity with all Kubernetes distributions, and a decades-long history of working with the world’s top companies. Canonical offers two Kubernetes distributions – Charmed Kubernetes and MicoK8s – to address the full range of enterprise infrastructure, from public cloud to on-prem, to edge/IoT.
