How Ubuntu Powers IBM HPC: Development, Deep Learning, and GPU Acceleration
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.

Modern software is getting complicated, and we’re simply not able to hire or train people fast enough to operate it due to the complexity of micro-services running across many machines. Juju from Canonical allows you to deploy open source operations code and model-driven operations at any scale on any cloud. Join the Juju team to find out:
>The basics of Juju from Charms to Bundles
>How to easily deploy solutions and scale up from one simple dashboard
>How Juju can be used for deep learning, container orchestration, real-time big data, or stream processing
>How you can use Juju to simplify your operations!
OpenStack has often been positioned as an alternative to traditional proprietary virtualization environments. Join Arturo Suarez and Stephan Fabel for:
>A breakdown of differences between OpenStack versus traditional proprietary virtualization and information on identifying when it makes sense to use one or the other
>Analysis on TCO, best practices and risks
>A demo on how to migrate from a traditional proprietary environment into an OpenStack cloud
Want to know even more about Snaps? In our second webinar on the topic we’ll be taking a technical look at Snaps themselves, our writing and publishing tool Snapcraft, how you can convert your existing applications, and the insight you’ll need to start building your first snaps! Ready to start building? You won’t want to miss this one.
What if you could package, distribute, and update any application for Linux Desktops, Servers, Clouds, and IoT devices? Snaps are containerised software packages that are simple to create and install, safe to run, and can work on all major Linux systems without modification. Whether you’re a developer, desktop user, or even a device manufacturer; you won't want to miss this!
What if you could move your Linux Virtual Machines straight to containers, easily, without modifying the apps or administration processes? LXD from Canonical is a pure-container hypervisor that takes the speed and latency of containers and brings them to the hypervisor world. LXD is a machine container, meaning they’re just like traditional physical and virtual machines. Join our webinar on February 7th with Technical Lead Stephane Graber to learn...
>The difference between application & machine containers
>How pure-container hypervisors such as LXD can reduce overhead
>How to use LXD in practice from deployment to operations
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 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:
>Reduce time to market

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.
Learn how City Network builds their Regulatory compliant Cloud services fit for some of the largest banks, insurance companies and large corporations in the world. In this talk, Johan Christenson, CEO of City Network, will detail:
>Requirements and challenges for industries who are subject to regulatory compliance
>How we build our clouds and our organisation to ensure regulatory compliance
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.
Marco Ceppi - Kubernetes @ Canonical & Sheng Liang - CEO @ Rancher Labs
The Cloud Native Platform is a offered in partnership between Canonical and Rancher Labs. The Cloud Native Platform is a turn-key application delivery platform, built on Ubuntu, Kubernetes, and Rancher.
This presentation covers:
* An introduction to Kubernetes for the enterprise as offered by Canonical
* An introduction to Rancher
* Demos of both products
* An overview of how they can be used to maximise developer velocity integrated CI/CD, and ease the path from development into production with enterprise-caliber container management.
Expect to see some container automation in action with Ubuntu and Kubernetes and more... With Marco Ceppi and Sheng Liang at the keyboard.
In his introduction keynote to the Ubuntu Enterprise Summit Mark Shuttleworth, founder and CEO of Canonical, will be explaining his vision for the future of enterprise architecture.
