Home is where the multi-cloud operation starts

Canonical drives down the cost of OpenStack with fully managed private cloud services.

Your multi-cloud strategy depends on having competing public clouds and a cost-effective private cloud. Ubuntu is an essential ingredient of any successful multi-cloud strategy.

Our deep relationships with all major public cloud vendors ensure that Ubuntu is the most optimised OS on all public clouds. Ubuntu is also the number one operating system used for OpenStack deployments. That makes it a perfect platform for multi-cloud operations.

Analysts found that Canonical delivers the most efficient infrastructure as a service on-premise. This, together with neutral public cloud expertise, makes us the right partner for the move to cloud computing. We provide consulting, training, support and fully managed private cloud services for many of the world’s leading companies.

Model-driven operations

Simplify your multi-cloud operations with Juju, an open source model driven operations system. Share operations code as open source, dramatically reducing the cost of complexity.

Get started with Juju


OpenStack developers looking to dig into the heart of a complex running OpenStack can follow our workstation install instructions for a single-node OpenStack deployment in multiple containers. For production environments, the same operational stack can be used at scale to deploy a full OpenStack cluster on bare metal servers. This Ubuntu reference OpenStack architecture uses MAAS and Linux Containers to operate efficiently on racks of bare metal.
