  • MAAS at the edge - The importance of bare metal provisioning in edge computing
    MAAS at the edge - The importance of bare metal provisioning in edge computing
    Andres Rodriguez - MAAS Engineering Manager Recorded: Jul 18 2019 40 mins
    Wide area networks, when managed inefficiently can prove costly for businesses as both hardware and the provisioning of geographically distributed devices can represent a hard cost.

    Edge deployment costs can be measured in:

    Capital and operational expenses
    Power usage
    Dissipated heat
    Real estate occupied

    For businesses looking to set up servers in remote locations with remote site footprint constraints, MAAS provides a compelling model.

    MAAS provides a solution to provision hardware and set-up servers remotely, quickly and with limited human intervention. By deploying MAAS businesses can reduce friction in small footprint environments as well as providing an open API-driven way to provision and repurpose nodes in every remote location enabling fast and efficient server provisioning.

    In this webinar join Ubuntu MAAS Product Manager, Andres Rodriguez to discuss use cases and how MAAS could benefit your business.
  • Using Kubernetes at the edge - architecture & tools for edge clouds and devices
    Using Kubernetes at the edge - architecture & tools for edge clouds and devices
    Carmine Rimi - Ubuntu Product Manager Recorded: Jul 10 2019 29 mins
    Edge clouds and devices are one of the fastest growth segments for cloud computing. This webinar will dive into the benefits of using Kubernetes as part of your edge strategy - for both edge clouds and edge devices.

    We’ll also explore use cases, architecture, and tools that will help you at every stage of your development lifecycle - from development to production deployments at scale. Microk8s and Charmed Kubernetes will be explored in sufficient detail to get you started with Kubernetes on Ubuntu.
  • A guide to edge computing
    A guide to edge computing
    Galem Kayo - Ubuntu Product Manager Recorded: Jul 3 2019 31 mins
    Put simply, edge computing is the method of processing data where it is being generated, at the edge of a network, allowing for real time data-processing without latency as opposed to sending it to a data centre. Since these ‘edge devices’ are integrated to the physical world and interact with people, it can be said that the edge is the physical location where things and people connect to the cloud.

    The drive to edge computing has been born out of necessity as a result of the huge amounts of data being generated by devices. With the advancement of ‘smart-tech’ generating vast amounts of data daily, edge computing is here to stay and will continue to provide cost effective security assurances, speed of compute and scalability for businesses.

    Join our upcoming webinar hosted by Galem Kayo, Ubuntu Product Manager to understand what is driving businesses to process their data at the edge and how you can add an edge computing layer to your business infrastructure.
  • How to start and progress with an AI program
    How to start and progress with an AI program
    Carmine Rimi - Ubuntu Product Manager & Al Kari - Manceps Recorded: Jun 19 2019 69 mins
    Whether you’re exploring what AI can do for your business and how to get started; have developed machine learning models you’re looking to deploy in production at scale; want to optimise your models for performance, audit your neural network for adversarial attacks or orchestrate your data pipelines, this webinar will provide an overview of what you need to achieve your goals.

    With data often described as the new electricity powering the 4th industrial revolution, and many leading companies falling behind innovative newcomers, we will discuss how you can maximise the value of your data, and where to use transfer learning or find more data when needed to train models for accurate predictions.

    In this webinar you will also learn:

    1. Which AI solutions are ready for production and for which applications.

    2. About open-source state-of-the-art frameworks and pre-trained models ready to be fine-tuned and deployed with minimal effort to realise your intelligent automation objectives.

    3. About current advancements and limitations in a technology moving at an unprecedented pace, powered by big data, advanced algorithms and infinite cloud resources.

    4. How you can manage change and prepare for the impact to your people.
  • Getting Started Easily with DevOps practices - CI/CD
    Getting Started Easily with DevOps practices - CI/CD
    Carmine Rimi - Ubuntu Product Manager Recorded: Jun 12 2019 59 mins
    Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Deployment are foundational practices for fully automated DevOps. In this talk, we'll cover the following areas:

    1) Key technology areas, highlighting some of the popular implementations.

    2) Deployment diagrams, showing several models for how the technology can be deployed

    3) Getting Started tools, including reference tools in GitHub that can be used for experimentation

    4) Demo of using the reference tools - due to time constraints, this will be similar to cooking shows - we'll demonstrate the start, and the end.

    This webinar will leverage Ubuntu, Kubernetes, Microk8s, and a host of CI/CD technologies like Jenkins, GitLab, Spinnaker.
  • Connected cars: addressing risk and complexity with software
    Connected cars: addressing risk and complexity with software

  • The transformation of the DevOps journey in IoT
    The transformation of the DevOps journey in IoT
    Igor Ljubuncic - Ubuntu Developer Advocate Recorded: May 15 2019 44 mins
    Traditional development methods do not scale into the IoT sphere. Strong inter-dependencies and blurred boundaries among components in the edge device stack result in fragmentation, slow updates, security issues, increased cost, and reduced reliability of platforms. This webinar showcases the use of Ubuntu Core and snaps as an alternative to the existing model, with a strong focus on isolation, reliability and an accelerated development cycle.
