Date: August 17-20
Location: Everywhere – this year’s KubeCon is virtual!
This year has been an adventurous one to say the least… but that should get in the way of the community getting together, exchanging ideas, and keeping up with what’s new in the sphere of Kubernetes. In fact, it’s all the more reason to do so!
That’s why KubeCon and CloudNativeCon is going virtual this year, with expected attendance to be higher than ever before.
Canonical will be there too, of course, as we have been every other year. This time round, we’re excited to contribute to the conversation with what’s exceptional and what’s new about our multi-cloud Kubernetes portfolio.
What will Canonical and Ubuntu bring to KubeCon EU 2020?
Here’s a taster of what we’ll be showcasing this year:
- Ubuntu is the operating system behind all Kubernetes public cloud distributions – GKE, EKS or AKS.
- Charmed Kubernetes is an extensible, full-conformant, enterprise Kubernetes platform that can easily be introduced in the public cloud so that you can run the very same Kubernetes on your private cloud. Charmed Kubernetes runs on top of any bare metal and VM cloud, making the deployment and operation of on-prem K8s clusters effortless.
- Canonical now covers edge cloud use cases too by introducing MicroK8s – a lightweight, opinionated, zero-ops Kubernetes for small to medium edge clusters.
- Canonical’s integration with Microsoft Azure Arc offers businesses a centralised place to manage their Kubernetes clusters and deploy their applications at scale, from cloud to edge.
- These capabilities are now combined with Canonical’s full lifecycle automation tooling to drastically simplify multi-cloud deployments and operations traceability with GitOps.

What is Kubernetes?
Kubernetes, or K8s for short, is an open source platform pioneered by Google, which started as a simple container orchestration tool but has grown into a platform for deploying, monitoring and managing apps and services across clouds.
