Effectively operating cloud applications is an essential part of every organisation's cloud strategy. However, due to the increasing number of applications that are considered mission-critical, with differing technical requirements and the need for 24/7 up-time, organisations are finding this challenging. As a result, many organisations have started to outsource application management, with varying success levels - due to hybrid and multi-cloud strategies, it is difficult to find one managed service provider who specialises across cloud-architectures and different applications.
To address this, Canonical has launched Managed Apps - enabling enterprises to have their apps deployed and operated by Canonical as a fully managed service. At launch, Canonical will cover ten widely used cloud-native database and LMA (logging, monitoring and alerting) apps regardless of whether they run on Kubernetes, bare-metal, public or private clouds. Managed Apps frees DevOps teams to focus on the value their apps can deliver and away from time-consuming cloud-management tasks, at a predictable price.
Join Nilay Patel, Product Manager, and James Troup, Engineering Director, from Canonical in this webinar to learn how outsourcing cloud application management helps organisations lower costs, maintain business focus and get more transparency over their cloud.
AI/ML model training is becoming more time consuming due to the increase in data needed to achieve higher accuracy levels. This is compounded by growing business expectations to frequently re-train and tune models as new data is available.
The two combined is resulting in heavier compute demands for AI/ML applications. This trend is set to continue and is leading data center companies to prepare for greater compute and memory-intensive loads for AI.
Getting the right hardware and configuration can overcome these challenges.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Kubeflow and AI workload automation
- System architecture optimized for AI/ML
- Choices to balance system architecture, budget, IT staff time and staff training.
- Software tools to support the chosen system architecture

En la última década, las organizaciones han comenzado a virtualizar sus cargas de trabajo de TI y a migrar de la infraestructura monolítica heredada a los entornos de la nube. Muchas eligen VMware como proveedor de su infraestructura virtualizada. Sin embargo, debido a los costes asociados a las licencias, el soporte y los servicios profesionales de VMware, muchas no pueden cumplir su objetivo principal: reducir significativamente el coste total de propiedad (TCO). En busca de soluciones alternativas, las organizaciones han empezado recientemente a explorar otras plataformas como OpenStack.
En este webinar, presentamos las principales similitudes y diferencias entre las ofertas de virtualización de VMware y Charmed OpenStack. Además, proporcionaremos un análisis de costes detallado en el que se destaca el ahorro que puede conseguir una organización al migrar de VMware a Charmed OpenStack.

Private cloud infrastructure remains an essential part of every enterprise nowadays. However, due to the increasing number of workloads and data, the overhead of managing bare metal servers, virtual machines and containers can mount up. Although tools like MAAS, OpenStack and Kubernetes help to address this problem, upskilling operations teams with those tools may take months. As a result, many organisations have started to either fully outsource operations of their private cloud infrastructure or for the initial rollout.
Join Tytus Kurek, Product Manager, and James Troup, Engineering Director, from Canonical in this webinar to learn how outsourcing private cloud infrastructure management help enterprises accelerate the initial deployment and reduce ongoing operational costs.
Tytus and James will present Canonical’s approach to hosted infrastructure for bare metal, OpenStack and Kubernetes including the tools and best practices that delivers a production-grade managed service. In addition, they will provide a detailed cost analysis highlighting the savings an organisation can make by outsourcing operations of private cloud infrastructure to a trusted managed service provider.
While Linux has grown to dominate the server room, Windows and Mac have long been the go-to operating systems in the enterprise desktop space.

Launching IoT devices and managing them at scale can be a time intensive and complex process. With 85% of IoT initiatives not launched after a year of development, it is inevitable that change is needed.
To overcome these challenges, Canonical has introduced Smart Start, a package that reduces business and technical decision making into a 2-week, fixed-cost decision. Smart Start provides a guided journey through the infrastructure needed to develop, customise, and distribute software to fleets of devices. With consulting services to de-risk the journey at critical points, an enterprise’s IoT strategy is fast tracked to market.
This webinar details the learnings from over 30 project summaries and case studies of Canonical customers. Nilay Patel, Product Manager for IoT and Devices, will speak about the lessons to take away, and why businesses such as Rigado, Cyberdyne and Fingbox chose Canonical to launch their IoT devices.
Deploying AI/ML solutions in latency-sensitive use cases requires a new solution architecture approach for many businesses.
Fast computational units (i.e. GPUs) and low-latency connections (i.e. 5G) allow for AI/ML models to be executed outside the sensors/actuators (e.g. cameras & robotic arms). This reduces costs through lower hardware complexity as well as compute resource sharing amongst the IoT fleet.
Strict AI responsiveness requirements that before required IoT AI model embedding can now be met with co-located GPUs (e.g. on the same factory building) as the sensors and actuators. An example of this is the robot ‘dummification’ trend that is currently being observed for factory robotics with a view to reducing robot unit costs and fleet management.
In this webinar we will explore some real-life scenarios in which GPUs and low-latency connectivity can unlock previously prohibitively expensive solutions now available for businesses to put in place and lead the 4th industrial revolution.
The container landscape is based on constantly evolving technology, with Kubernetes dominating the ecosystem for automating and managing containerized applications.
