How do you deploy an IoT application at scale and maintain it over the long-term?
Innovators around the world are looking for answers to these questions. Security is a prime concern for critical embedded IoT applications. Furthermore, the operational cost incurred by provisioning, commissioning and managing large fleets of IoT devices can be exorbitant.
Ubuntu Core is a lightweight version of classic Ubuntu built on snap application containers, and optimised for securely deploying and maintaining critical IoT applications. It was developed with the operational challenges faced by IoT innovators in mind.
In this webinar, we will walk through the journey of productising an IoT application with Ubuntu Core. We will start by developing an application on a Raspberry Pi running Ubuntu Server. Then we will go through the process of packaging the application into a snap, which we will test in development mode on Ubuntu Server. Finally we will migrate the application to Ubuntu Core in a fully confined snap. The lifecycle management of the IoT application running in production on Ubuntu Core will be demonstrated.
Change your existing set-up to account for the future, prepare for the worst, and for the best. The Ubuntu robotics team have seen the same problems arise again and again that can cost organisations in more ways than one.
Save time to market, engineering cost and developer time by starting with a strong foundation.Getting things like security and updatability right for the long term is crucial to growth and success. In this webinar Rhys, of the robotics team, will walk you through the numerous problems that can be solved simply by making a smart start or a smart change with your operating system.

Deep tech can be characterised as risky, challenging, innovative technologies that solve real-world problems. Emerging areas of deep tech today include autonomous vehicles, Internet of Things, robots, deep learning and virtual reality as well as some underlying enabling technologies. Three attributes in particular characterise deep tech: the potential impact they can have on society, the long development time they need to reach market-readiness and the significant amount of capital required to develop and scale.
Ubuntu was created from the premise that future innovation would be primarily software-driven, and that to foster innovation, it is necessary to empower innovators with free open-source software. In this webinar, we will discuss how innovators can leverage Ubuntu as a platform to realise the potential of their technology endeavors. In particular, we will address the continuum from accelerated development with Ubuntu classic, to product commercialisation and long-term support with Ubuntu Core. We will also share examples of exciting deep tech innovations that are being delivered on Ubuntu.
Over the last decade, organisations have started virtualising their IT workloads and migrating from legacy monolithic infrastructure to cloud environments. Many choose VMware as a provider for their virtualised infrastructure.
