Open source in Government: Adoption, security and procurement

As major organisations migrate and continue to build, test and deploy across open source technologies, security of those platforms is always top-of-mind. With Ubuntu, security is built in from its foundation, making it a popular Linux distribution used by developers and a secure platform for production environments across on-prem and multi-cloud infrastructure, even extending to devices and edge computing.

The Ubuntu security team at Canonical is constantly working to review threats, fix vulnerabilities and upgrade out-of-the-box security capabilities for releases to protect your systems and mission-critical workloads.

Get the full Ubuntu security story and see how our teams are securing Ubuntu systems across server, device and edge environments.

In this webinar, join our team to learn how:
- Ubuntu is built with security in mind from the ground up, and how we keep you protected against major vulnerabilities
- How you can ensure performant open source in production environments
- Specific security services that can help you achieve maximum availability by reducing downtime and providing access to high and critical CVE fixes
- Ubuntu helps organisations remain compliant with government and industry standards and regulations, including CIS benchmark hardening and audit, Common Criteria EAL2 and FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certified crypto modules

  • Intro to Open Source: How free software has changed the world Recorded: Oct 12 2021 61 mins
    Omar Amin, Product Manager at Canonical
    Open source software has largely influenced the world we’re living in today. It is all around us in our everyday life, from smartphones and laptops to smart devices and cars. Since open source was introduced a few decades ago, the main aim behind it was to enable users to operate, copy, share, study, change, and improve this software. Today, over 85% of organisations have an open source mandate to increase agility and flexibility. It has enabled enterprises to further innovate while cutting down costs. And as most of the cloud native ecosystem consists of open source components, companies who consume open source efficiently are considered to be better positioned for the future. Join our first "in Arabic" webinar to learn more about open source and how it has helped evolve the world around us, and how to leverage open source softwares to better position yourself for the future.
  • Self-healing Kubernetes at the edge: MicroK8s, Raspberry Pis and Portainer Recorded: Oct 6 2021 27 mins
    Alex Chalkias - Product Manager, Canonical
    As developers and businesses are shifting their attention to the edge, we see a growing interest for home-grown Kubernetes clusters that adopt mission-critical features, such as self-healing high-availability. Kubernetes simplifies container deployments by abstracting the resource management details from the users, allowing them to deploy using standard CLI or templates.

    Edge adds the challenge of executing these deployments at scale and with no access for local troubleshooting. This is where MicroK8s and Portainer shine, bringing a strong combination of a streamlined Kubernetes experience for small devices, such as the Raspberry Pi, and an intuitive UI to manage Kubernetes and containers across geographies.

    In this technical session, you’ll learn:
    - How MicroK8s brings a full Kubernetes to edge deployments
    - How to build your own highly-available edge cluster with Raspberry Pis
    - How to use the Portainer dashboard to manage your Kubernetes
    - How to use Kubernetes deployments to ensure zero-downtime

  • How to manage risks with the top 1% Managed Service Providers Recorded: Sep 21 2021 43 mins
    Omar Amin Emam, Product Manager - Canonical, Mike Valen, Director of Support- Canonical, Charles Weaver, CEO of MSPAlliance
    Private and hybrid clouds are an essential part of every organisation’s digital transformation strategy. Due to the nature of their businesses, they tend to be inclined towards focusing more on strategy and finding alternative approaches to operating their IT infrastructure solutions. Managed service providers have helped create this cost efficient operating model by allowing organisations to focus more on their core business and spend more effort, time and budget on strategy and transformation rather than keeping the lights on.

  • OpenStack public cloud implementation Recorded: Jul 14 2021 60 mins
    Tytus Kurek (Canonical), Nauman Vawda (iVolve) & Thierry Carrez (Open Infrastructure Foundation)
    Although the public cloud market is mostly dominated by the hyperscalers, using cloud services from AWS, Azure or Google in some parts of the world is challenging due to local regulations, digital sovereignty concerns and latency issues. As a result, many businesses have started implementing their own public cloud infrastructure to offer cloud services on local markets. Leveraging open source technologies enabled them to reduce the TCO of cloud infrastructure maintenance and offer their services to their customers at a better price than the hyperscalers.

    Join Thierry Carrez, VP of Engineering at the Open Infrastructure Foundation, Nauman Vawda, CEO & Founder at iVolve Technologies and Tytus Kurek, Product Manager at Canonical to learn how OpenStack enables businesses to implement local public cloud infrastructure.
  • A technical introduction to the Snap Store Proxy Recorded: Jun 30 2021 30 mins
    Holly Hall - Product Lead; Przemysław Suliga - Software Engineer, Snap Store
    In the world of IoT, it is crucial to be fully in control of your devices. Over-the-air (OTA) updates are essential for a distributed set of devices but must be carefully managed to ensure that an update is not pushed at a time where the device is active and operation should not be interrupted. To enable this level of control, we have developed the Snap Store Proxy, an on-premise edge proxy to the general Snap Store that can do more than simply managing updates. Join Holly Hall, Product Lead at Canonical and Przemysław Suliga, Software Engineer at Canonical, to gain an understanding of the features and applications of the Snap Store Proxy, with a technical demonstration of how to set up, configure and use the proxy to control updates.
