Try pre-built images

Ubuntu Core runs on a variety of hardware, and pre-built testing images are available for amd64 and ARM platforms (among others). These images can also be installed on a virtual machine.

Testing images are ideal for exploration and experimentation, but they are not intended for deployment or for use at scale. They include snaps to provide an on-boarding and evaluation experience, alongside an SSH connection, and these are unlikely to be required in your own Ubuntu Core deployment.

Ubuntu Core has instead been designed to facilitate the creation, deployment, and management of secure custom images running on your own hardware.

To learn how to create your own custom image, see our Build an image guide.
