Leverage secure open source to drive business agility and accelerate innovation

Explore a collection of useful resources that will help you understand how financial institutions can leverage secure and supported open source to accelerate their digital transformation journeys.

Canonical – Trusted source of open source for financial services

Canonical helps financial institutions drive infrastructure efficiency and operational agility with multi-cloud, hybrid cloud and bare-metal solutions. Ubuntu is the leading cloud and container platform, and the best platform for devsecops, AI/ML and blockchain. Canonical provides secure and supported open source technology to financial institutions.

Here is a curated set of whitepapers, blogs, community presentations, webinars, and more. We'll guide you through what each resource is about, and add more to this page over time.

Customer case studies

TIM maintains system security and client confidence with ESM

To ensure the ongoing security of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS machines, ESM from Canonical provided TIM, the world's largest trade recommendations network, the freedom to upgrade within their own timeframe. This approach saved time and money for this finserv organisation.

SBI reduced infrastructure costs with Charmed OpenStack

SBI Group unlocks infrastructure automation with secure, on-premises OpenStack cloud.

Canonical's solution was a third of the price of the other proposals we'd received. But it wasn't just about cost. Canonical's engineers visited us in person, and that gave us confidence in the people that would be behind the OpenStack deployment.

Allan Gray unlocks unprecedented productivity with Charmed Kubernetes

Allan Gray, an investment banking company, managed their Kubernetes cluster in-house, but soon realised lack of additional support and management resourcing could pose issues.

To minimise risk and maximise revenues, it turned to Canonical's Charmed Kubernetes.


Secure Open Source for Financial Services

Building a foundation for effective and secure open-source software adoption in financial services

The ability to easily incorporate commercial-grade open source software building blocks in their technology landscape allows financial firms to build a strong digital foundation. However, in a highly regulated industry, it’s key to ensure that the open-source stack has the right security requirements in place.

Kubernetes and Containerisation for Financial Services

A CIO's guide to unlocking success in digital transformations

Containerisation and Kubernetes have become inextricably woven into the digital transformation imperative. This white paper looks at the role of containerisation and Kubernetes in the cloud native transformation of financial services. By understanding why these technologies are so important and how best to leverage them, financial institutions can execute their digital strategy faster.

Finserv IT infrastructure: Migrating from VMWare to OpenStack

CIOs' guide to migrating your private cloud infrastructure to a more cost effective solution

To drive business agility, financial institutions will need to leverage the right mix of cloud services – a hybrid cloud strategy to maximise application performance while on-boarding innovative new capabilities.

Using cost effective open source private cloud infrastructure and placing workloads on public clouds with considerations for application performance, security and compliance, economics and consumption model shall allow financial institutions to optimise their CapEx and OpEx costs.

Embracing the next phase of digital transformation is an imperative for financial institutions to sustain and grow in a competitive environment of rising cost pressures. Given the need for rapid digitisation of their businesses, financial institutions need an architecture approach where a set of loosely coupled services can be developed, deployed, and maintained independently.

Private cloud for Financial Services

Comparing Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Canonical’s Charmed OpenStack

Private cloud technology allows financial institutions to drive business agility and to rapidly respond to changing needs dictated by users, regulations, and the market. A private cloud is an integral part of a hybrid multi-cloud strategy for financial services organisations. It enables financial institutions to derive competitive advantage from agile implementations without incurring the security and business risks of a public cloud.

Faced with a market transforming at the hands of new, cloud-native competitors, financial services businesses are actively engaging in their own transformation. They are adopting and integrating multiple cloud platforms and seeking to derive business value directly from emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and container-based application architecture.
