Deploying Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS in distributed environments with MAAS

Many people use Ubuntu Server in scale-out environments for web infrastructure, cloud or big data applications. The sheer scale of these deployments - at companies like Netflix, Mercado Libre and Instagram - has many people now referring to ‘hyperscale computing’. Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS contains new technologies to help the rapid deployment and management of web services in distributed environments, so you can scale your infrastructure without scaling cost. Join Matthew Revell and Mark Baker from the Ubuntu Server team to learn about these new technologies and how they can help you benefit from the same infrastructure as the world’s leading web scale companies.

  • How to pick a winning IoT business model Sep 13 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Mike Bell, Ian Hughes
    Getting started on an IoT project? Are you going to build a business or a liability for yourself? Canonical commissioned a research of 361 IoT professionals to find out how their projects are progressing. The findings were compiled in a report titled Defining IoT Business Models, which explored the practices of organisations currently implementing IoT projects.

    In this webinar, Canonical's EVP of Devices & IoT and 451 Research's IoT Analyst will discuss our findings as well as the challenges and opportunities businesses will face with the internet of things!

    Arturo Suarez, Canonical; Idjiwa Adjido, Extrahop; Johna Till Johnson, Nemeretes; Haidee McMahon, Intel; Bob Crooks
    The ICT sector is moving us inexorably towards a software-enabled digital world, but many still fail to understand the power of this trend, how it is going to impact/benefit the ICT Industries and infrastructures delivering them.

    Among topics discussed will be:
    - Present and future impact of Software Defined technologies on IT (challenges and opportunities)
    - How Software-Defined is enabling the digital transformation
    - Best practices and recommendation on adopting software-defined technologies with the future in mind.

    This Webinar is aimed at IT professionals and CIOs/CDOs/CTOs seeking to understand more about how software-defined impacts the present and future of enterprises.
  • Challenges and Opportunities in the Software Defined Data Centre Era Recorded: Aug 15 2017 48 mins
    Arturo Suarez, Product Strategist, Canonical
    With the irruption of Open Source and Software-Defined components in the Data Centre, there has been a shift of cost from licensing and appliances - in the traditional IT - to operations. The challenge in this new era, where all the components evolve faster than adoption, learning curves and skill development, resides in keeping the operations efficient while adding innovation, with its inherent complexity.

    During this webinar we will go through best practices to navigate that transition and set up your operations teams to the future while keeping cost contained and services competitive.
  • Speed up your software development lifecycle using Kubernetes Recorded: Aug 2 2017 53 mins
    Marco Ceppi, Product Strategy at Canonical and Luke Marsden, Head of Developer Experience at Weaveworks
    For a complete cloud native application lifecycle Kubernetes needs some tools to "close the loop". The promise of the new way of doing things, is that you'll speed up your software delivery with microservices and devops teams. But how should you really do that?

    Join this webinar to discover:

    * Why you should try the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes container solution and how to install it.
    * How to deploy, troubleshoot and manage your application using Weave Cloud
    Prometheus monitoring.
    * What is Prometheus monitoring, how it works, how to instrument your application using it and how you can get the most out of it.
    * How to speed up your software development lifecycle - ship features faster, fix problems faster.

    The webinar includes live demo’s and Q&A.
  • Building a commercial robot with open source Recorded: Jul 26 2017 60 mins
    Kyle Fazzari - Roboticist at Canonical
    Developing a new device is hard. So is taking that device to production. However, we see numerous examples of companies devoting all of their time to development, and none to answering the important questions that are raised as one approaches production, such as:

    * What is my factory process?
    * How is the base OS updated so as to remain secure?
    * How is my own software updated?
    * How is the device recovered if an update goes wrong?

    In this webinar we'll discuss:

    * The challenges of commercialising robots
    * Using ROS in your production code
    * Build security in from the get go with snaps and Ubuntu Core
    * Continuously deliver new features and updates without the cold sweat
  • How to upgrade your OpenStack cloud easily, without downtime Recorded: Jul 18 2017 61 mins
    Mark Baker
    has become commonplace to see some OpenStack users choose to remain on old unsupported versions of OpenStack, forgoing new features and security updates rather than face the disruption, stress and complexity of upgrading. At Canonical we call this a StuckStack, a cloud that cannot or will not be upgraded.
    In this webinar we will show you how to get unstuck and onto an OpenStack path where upgrades between releases are guaranteed. Access to compelling new features in OpenStack becomes easy as systems can be upgraded with little or no downtime.

  • IoT going beyond the proof of concept Recorded: Jun 14 2017 42 mins
    Thibaut Rouffineau, Head of Marketing Devices & IoT, Canonical
    The majority of IoT deployments across smart city, industrial or smart home are still relatively small scale and their benefits kept within the confines of the respective organisations. Slow deployments and costs are often to blame which prevent IT managers to go from proof of concepts to production. But for all to fully reap the benefits of IoT, large deployments scaling across cities and multiple sites will be required. In this session, Mike Bell will share some of the insights of deploying Ubuntu in production across IoT verticals: digital signage, smart city, industrial, retail, telecoms...

  • Painless Kubernetes Upgrades Recorded: Apr 27 2017 53 mins
    Marco Ceppi
    Kubernetes releases new major versions every three months, and multiple point releases of those major versions. With each new release comes new features, some of which might still be in preview mode, as well as bugfixes, improvements, and other changes that you’ll likely want.

    For the uninitiated, an upgrade plan is one of the most challenging aspects of running a cluster, however our team has been focusing specifically on how to make this process as smooth, predictable, and transparent as possible.

  • How Ubuntu Powers IBM HPC: Development, Deep Learning, and GPU Acceleration Recorded: Feb 15 2017 53 mins
    Chris DeYoung
    Companies Deliver Rapid Deployment & Improved Performance On OpenPOWER!
    A new class of “Big Software” has emerged in Machine Learning, precision medicine, genomics, physical sciences, and more. At the same time, a new class of highly performant, open, purpose-built hardware blends GPU acceleration, high CPU-to-GPU bandwidth, and unified memory access. The challenge that many now face is how to create solutions that pair “Big Software” to this hardware to solve problems faster, more flexibly, and repeatedly.
    This webinar will present a set of powerful open-source tools that rapidly assemble and scale HPC solutions, so you can focus on solving the tough problems instead of the tooling.
