As more and more applications move to the public cloud, many wonder if it still makes sense to maintain a data centre apart from regulated workloads. In this presentation Mark Shuttleworth, Founder and CEO of Canonical and Andres Rodriguez, MAAS engineering manager, will look into how devops and infrastructure managers can build an agile data centre with a developer agility and a cost base that can compete with public cloud.
In this presentation you will learn:
* How to build a low cost / high usage smart data centre based on automation
* Most common use cases best suited for bare metal provisioning
* How MAAS, Canonical's server provisioning tool, can be used to build your agile data centre
With the explosive growth of data, telcos are facing new challenges in revenue. Canonical currently provide some of the world's leading service providers with an automated, repeatable, and tried & tested telco solution. In this webinar, join Nathan Rader to learn how Ubuntu OpenStack can help telcos:

As more enterprise embark on the path to IoT, they face 2 obstacles: monetization and security. A number of them will stay in an analysis paralysis mode, while their competitors and the rest of the market progress. What they're really after is a secure path to growth that lets them experiment now without jeopardising their future. Over the last 2 years Canonical has been accompanying companies in the process of building their IoT business. At the heart of this approach are white label appstores built for the world of IoT that allow companies to launch secure managed devices now while creating an infrastructure for customer retention and future revenues.

Of course you know Ubuntu. Your developers use it everywhere. But you're from an enterprise, where the IT Security team has the final say. As they should. Before your app built on Ubuntu can go into production, you need their signoff. So what's the security story with Ubuntu? How is it hardened? Are there best practices around patch management? What about standards and compliance? How can Canonical help?
In this webinar, join Dustin Kirkland to learn:
>How Ubuntu is secured out of the box
>How we ensure that we are compliant
>How Canonical ensure customers get a first class support experience
>Why Ubuntu has the leading edge in security

Finance is moving an avalanche of change and facing cloud native new entrants. To keep up with the pace of change, financial organizations need to adopt new development methodologies, new technologies (AI & Blockchain) and ultimately new infrastructure (Hybrid cloud & Kubernetes). Tight regulation, legacy systems and inflexible software stacks leave many tied them down and unable to respond to the pressure to reduce costs & change at pace.
In this presentation, Chris Kenyon will talk about how financial institutions are transforming into technology companies:
* Making internal developers engaged & productive
* Navigating the challenges of hybrid cloud in highly regulated environments.
* Accelerating proof of value projects in AI / ML and Blockchain
The "reality" organisations will use combinations of OpenStack, Containers, public cloud, and VMware to deliver applications. In this session Mark Baker will highlight the best Multi-Cloud practises learned in the field for architecting, deploying and managing scale out infrastructure from baremetal through to managing application portability between substrates.
In this webinar we will talk about practical steps that will help you:
- Reap the benefits of hybrid cloud by adapting to cloud devops
- Deal with the technical and operational pitfalls involved in migrating to native cloud
- Make the right choices for your cloud architectural to achieve lean devops

It's not a secret anymore that cloud facilitates digital transformation and that many companies are happily embracing it - slower or faster, it really depends on the IT infrastructure already in place. What remains a mystery though, is what's next?
BrightTALK has invited experts to discuss what is the cloud of the future and which trends are worth your attention to stay ahead of the game.

This webinar will cover the best-of-breed Kubernetes implementation packages available from Canonical.
Launching a foray in the world of containers can be daunting, considering the variety of commercial and open source technologies available. Canonical is at the forefront of container orchestration with the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes, and has taken the guesswork out of deploying and operating production-grade Kubernetes clusters.
What will be covered:
- Kubernetes Explorer - a production-grade implementation of Kubernetes in a cloud environment with hands-on web-based training
- Kubernetes Discoverer - a more advanced package that also includes bare metal infrastructure, CI/CD workflow and hands-on in-person training
- Kubernetes Add-on custom options - from custom monitoring to disaster recovery, there are options to cover your enterprise needs

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.

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.
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.

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
* 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.
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
