Canonical is excited to welcome OpenStack solution provider Awnix to its Reseller Programme.  Awnix provides OpenStack solutions tailored to the US federal government.  Awnix is led by a team of technology experts with decades of experience serving the government and corporate markets. Awnix’s founders are former Federal data center architects with a combined 25 years of experience designing systems and solutions for enterprise data center environments.

OpenStack is at the foundation of Awnix’s industry-leading Engineered Systems, which are designed to help government and enterprise IT professionals more easily meet their security, reliability, compliance, and cost-efficiency goals. With over 61% of large scale OpenStack deployments running on Ubuntu, collaboration between Awnix and Canonical is an obvious choice.

“Ubuntu is a worldwide leader in Linux and OpenStack development, innovation and flexibility, so collaborating with Canonical better enables us to easily and rapidly develop platforms and solutions that are highly scalable, robust, and secure,” said Rick Kundiger, CEO of Awnix. “Those are the qualities our  customers in both the public and private sectors are looking for in a cloud solution – scale, resiliency, flexibility, and security that meet the requisite certification and compliance regulations – so that they can develop and deploy sophisticated applications quickly and easily.”

“The combination of Canonical’s expertise and leadership in OpenStack together with Awnix’s extensive experience in the Federal Government is another step we take to bring cloud solutions to the US Public Sector in order to improve civic services. Awnix is the right partner with the needed knowledge and delivery capabilities to help us expand even more, create the potential for even greater quality as well as functionality, economy and flexibility for customers choosing to deploy OpenStack based cloud platforms and solutions,” said Marcin Kierdelewicz, Director of Channel Business Development, from Canonical.

Canonical and Awnix will be showcasing their joint solution, based on Ubuntu Cloud Technologies including OpenStack, MAAS and Juju, along with PLUMgrid SDN at the WEST conference in San Diego next week.  Come and visit us in Booth 1549.
