  • Why containers and automation are essential in a world being eaten by software Recorded: Sep 12 2017 60 mins
    Christian "Kiko" Reis, VP Field Engineering at Canonical
    Software architects have driven to increasing levels of abstraction and modularization in order to improve reuse and scalability, but there is an inherent step up in complexity that comes with it. This presentation discusses the challenges that increasingly complex software brings, and how two key developments, containers and automated operations, are essential in achieving economically sustainable operations.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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...
