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. However, because of the costs associated with VMware licencing, support and professional services, many are not able to meet their primary goal - significantly reduced TCO. In search of alternative solutions, organisations have recently started exploring other platforms such as OpenStack.
In this webinar, we present the key similarities and differences between VMware’s virtualisation offerings and Charmed OpenStack. In addition, we'll provide a detailed cost analysis highlighting the savings an organisation can make by migrating from VMware to Charmed OpenStack.

The telco edge can take many shapes depending on the geography, the existing network infrastructure, current and future services to be delivered. No two telcos, today, have the same perceived needs. Additionally, these needs might change drastically depending on what the future holds for new services such as 5G, IOT or AI at the edge.
Join Canonical’s telco team to hear about the strategies and tactics you can adopt to build an edge that can match your requirements of today and tomorrow.
Wide area networks, when managed inefficiently can prove costly for businesses as both hardware and the provisioning of geographically distributed devices can represent a hard cost.
Edge deployment costs can be measured in:
Capital and operational expenses
Real estate occupied

We’ll also explore use cases, architecture, and tools that will help you at every stage of your development lifecycle - from development to production deployments at scale. Microk8s and Charmed Kubernetes will be explored in sufficient detail to get you started with Kubernetes on Ubuntu.
Put simply, edge computing is the method of processing data where it is being generated, at the edge of a network, allowing for real time data-processing without latency as opposed to sending it to a data centre. Since these ‘edge devices’ are integrated to the physical world and interact with people, it can be said that the edge is the physical location where things and people connect to the cloud.
The drive to edge computing has been born out of necessity as a result of the huge amounts of data being generated by devices. With the advancement of ‘smart-tech’ generating vast amounts of data daily, edge computing is here to stay and will continue to provide cost effective security assurances, speed of compute and scalability for businesses.
Join our upcoming webinar hosted by Galem Kayo, Ubuntu Product Manager to understand what is driving businesses to process their data at the edge and how you can add an edge computing layer to your business infrastructure.
