Leveraging open source with Ubuntu Pro on Azure: Economics, Velocity & Security

Every day, organizations of all kinds and sizes choose to harness open source innovation as part of their development and operations. Many have embraced Linux and are now adopting open source beyond the core platform, as evidenced by the widespread adoption of ecosystems like Python, Node.js and Go, and workloads like Kafka, Redis and Elasticsearch. From retailers to financial services enterprises running on Microsoft Azure, Ubuntu has rapidly become a preferred platform to harness that innovation.

But how can organizations balance the fast pace of community-driven open source innovation with their own imperatives of security, compliance and support? And what does an open source security strategy mean for enterprise environments?

In this webinar, you’ll learn how Microsoft and Canonical are partnering to ensure every organization can achieve more through open source software in a trusted way — with no compromises on security and support. In addition to covering features of Ubuntu Pro for Azure such as Livepatch, Extended Security Maintenance and FIPS/Common Criteria, we’ll share our roadmap and joint vision for open source security and compliance in the cloud.

    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is the best Ubuntu yet. It’s been over a month since it got released, and it has excellent reception among both desktop and server users. Many organisations are already starting using the latest Ubuntu. Others might be using previous versions of Ubuntu which are still supported under LTS or ESM - such as 19.10, 18.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS or even 14.04 LTS. If you use the previous version of Ubuntu you are probably wondering if you should migrate, when is the right time, and what factors should you take into account when planning a migration. During this webinar, we will explore those questions and provide guidance from the industry and from Ubuntu developers.

    It is a highly practical webinar. We will explore factors that should be taken into account to deliver successful migration at the right pace covering most popular infrastructure components such as OpenStack, Kubernetes and Ceph. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so we will explore different variants and scenarios driven by potential benefits and best practises from the industry. We will also point out some risks and mitigation strategies.

    Our special guest speaker expert - László Angyal from Deutsche Telekom Pan - Net Hungary Kft. will share a practical approach to managing migrations of Ubuntu on OpenStack in an NFVI environment. László is an expert in that area who has over 25 years of experience. From Canonical we will hear from Josh Powers - senior engineer who led Ubuntu 20.04 LTS delivery and Tytus Kurek - product manager for Ubuntu Server and OpenStack who will elaborate on best practises on migration to the latest Ubuntu 20.04 LTS in the business environment.
