Canonical is behind Ubuntu, the leading OS for container, cloud, and hyperscale computing. Most public cloud workloads use Ubuntu, as do most new smart gateways, switches, self-driving cars, and advanced robots. Canonical provides enterprise security, support, and services to commercial users of Ubuntu. Established in 2004, Canonical is a privately held company.
Scale and complexity brings similar challenges, big or small. Hybrid cloud, public cloud, on-prem only large datacenter or highly distributed infrastructure - Canonical Open Source technology building blocks provide a unified approach to enabling Service Providers to meet any current or future use-cases, from OpenRAN, next generation Core (5G and beyond) or AI at the edge.
By providing custom engineering, support contracts and training, we help clients in the telecoms and IT services industries to cut costs, improve efficiency and tighten security with Ubuntu and OpenStack. We work with hardware manufacturers like Intel, HP and Dell, to ensure the software we create can be delivered on the world’s most popular devices. And we contribute thousands of man-hours every year to projects like OpenStack, to ensure that the world’s best open source software continues to fulfill its potential.
