Canonical deploys infrastructure solutions and managed IT services for critical space mission operations

Canonical Infrastructure enables efficient, automated, and fast deployment of systems across more missions

The systems Canonical deployed and now manage for ESA mean that European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) engineering teams can quickly and centrally manage and deploy mission-critical infrastructure and software, with more security, reliability, and control.

ESA has an ambitious challenge: to fly double its current number of satellites by 2030. To meet this goal, ESA engaged Canonical to deliver the architecture, design and deployment of Kubernetes and Ceph for persistent storage.

Canonical’s Kubernetes distribution brought automatic updates and deployment, 24/7 monitoring and reduced system complexity to ESA’s Missions Operations Infrastructure – IT (MOI-IT) team. This new system allows ESA’s IT infrastructure teams to easily deploy its workloads with full integration into the existing IT services, giving it a greater ability to support both ESA missions and those of its partners.

Read the case study to learn how Canonical delivered:
• Architecture, design, and deployment of Canonical’s distributions of Ceph and Kubernetes.
• Timely updates and 24/7 monitoring of mission-critical equipment.
• Significant cost-savings in moving away from licensed providers and proprietary solutions.
• A new, dynamic platform for efficient, automated, and fast deployment of systems across double its previous number of missions.

“We wanted one partner for the whole on-premise cloud because we’re not just supporting Kubernetes but also our Ceph clusters and managed Postgres. These were all the services that were needed and with this we could have one nice, easy joined-up approach.”

— Michael Hawkshaw, Mission Operations Infrastructure IT Service Manager, ESA
