Canonical expands container portfolio with supported distribution of Kubernetes

 

Canonical this week launched its own distribution of Kubernetes, with enterprise support, across a range of public clouds and private infrastructure. The Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes enables enterprise customers to operate and scale Kubernetes clusters on demand, anywhere. Leveraging Canonical’s existing Juju Charm eco-system, the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes adds extensive operational and support tooling but is otherwise a perfectly standard Kubernetes experience, tracking upstream releases closely.
