Transforming the landscape of edge computing and IIoT with Ubuntu Certified Hardware
[Nuremberg, Germany. , 13 November 2023] — InoNet Computer GmbH, a Eurotech Company, known for engineering and manufacturing of embedded systems and Edge AI computers, has entered into a strategic partnership with Canonical, the publisher of Ubuntu. Together they are set to deliver a robust platform for deploying IoT solutions, introducing cutting-edge Ubuntu certified computers.
This partnership aligns InoNet’s hardware with Canonical’s Hardware Certification programme, ensuring stringent standards for reliability, software compatibility and ongoing maintenance.
Under this programme, certified hardware gains access to continuous support and essential security updates, providing customers with peace of mind that their systems will remain secure and operational.
At the heart of this collaborative effort is the InoNet Concepion®-tXf -L-v3 computer, fueled by Intel® processors, a pinnacle of reliability and seamless performance. Thanks to Canonical’s hardware certification, backed up by extensive real-word testing, the device ensures compatibility with every minor update beyond the initial validation. This means that, when minor Ubuntu updates and patches are released, the pre-certified hardware is less likely to encounter issues or require significant adjustments to function with these updates. As a result, users can rest assured that their software stacks will operate as specified by Ubuntu. Moreover, the integration of hardware drivers into the Ubuntu kernel simplifies usage and enhances compatibility with future kernel updates.
“InoNet’s collaboration with Canonical is a milestone in our commitment to deliver quality products to our customers. With access to reliable, performant and Ubuntu-certified hardware they can seamlessly and efficiently use edge computing technology to optimise their business processes, up to full AI applications. Ubuntu-certified hardware, backed by software compatibility, long-term support and security updates, ensures a level of reliability that sets important industry standards. This collaboration not only minimises integration risks for our customers, but also accelerates time-to-market. I am thrilled that together we can enable Edge AI applications paving the way for a smarter, safer and more sustainable future,” said Ralph Ostertag, CEO, InoNet.
The combination of Ubuntu with Concepion®-tXf -L-v3 forms an adaptable platform for IoT solutions on edge servers, IPCs, and Edge AI Systems.
Certified for both reliability and performance, this collaboration between InoNet and Canonical not only enhances these attributes but also streamlines processes, mitigates risks and accelerates time-to-market across various industry sectors.
“Through the Ubuntu Certified Programme, we are able to provide secure, fully supported IoT solutions across the full stack. We are excited to have InoNet joining the Ubuntu ecosystem. With this partnership, we can deliver the best possible Linux experience out-of-the-box, with long term security and reliability support. We look forward to seeing more innovative Edge AI applications brought to InoNet customers.“ said Joe Dulin, VP of Devices Sales, Canonical.
