Turnkey AI solutions for the enterprise powered by Canonical and NVIDIA

Canonical and NVIDIA partner up to build turnkey solutions for enterprises in various industries to optimise their AI journey. Develop, deploy and scale AI with unparalleled hardware performance and the power of open source.

Check out the Enterprise-Ready AI solution powered by Canonical and NVIDIA. 

The enterprise-ready operating system loved by AI/ML developers

Meet your AI/ML developers where they are

Your developers are already on Ubuntu, so your production environment should be too. Unleash the power of AI, HPC and data science, with Ubuntu supported on NVIDIA DGX™ as well as third-party NVIDIA-Certified Systems running the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software suite.

Why Ubuntu?

  • An enterprise-ready OS with unparalleled security
  • Loved by developers and data scientists
  • Unified experience from cloud to IoT
  • Best-in-class integrations with NVIDIA hardware
  • Seamless move from development to deployment


Ubuntu powers a multitude of NVIDIA platforms - NVIDIA Fleet Command™, Bluefield® DPUs or the gold standard for training in the datacenter - DGX. NVIDIA CUDA releases are continuously validated with Ubuntu to ensure you get the best performance, and signed NVIDIA GPU drivers ensure end-to-end security.

Learn how to set up Ubuntu for the best experience for AI/ML

Enterprises, data scientists and developers building AI solutions require integrated systems and software that easily support MLOps workflows. Organisations can run NVIDIA AI on Ubuntu to help solve some of humanity's biggest challenges with new products and systems that simplify operations, boost safety and improve communication.

Unmatched container orchestration with NVIDIA GPU integration into Canonical Kubernetes

Ubuntu provides an optimised platform for using NVIDIA hardware from the cloud to the edge, whether you are using bare-metal VMs or docker containers. Canonical Kubernetes builds on optimised Ubuntu images and provides unmatched integrations and operations, and is certified as part of the DGX-Ready Software program.

The NVIDIA GPU operator is integrated into Canonical Kubernetes, allowing automation of all software components required to provision NVIDIA GPUs.

Take the fast track with certified hardware

Get peace of mind with Ubuntu certified hardware from all major OEMs. Choosing validated platforms significantly reduces deployment time and costs for end-customers, in addition to improving reliability and providing bug-fixes faster.

Combined with NVIDIA DGX systems or NVIDIA-Certified systems, choosing an Ubuntu-certified platform provides secure, performant hardware that is guaranteed to deploy quickly and run smoothly.

Performance and efficiency
in an heterogeneous world

The ever-evolving landscape that is driving massive increases in virtualisation and network traffic necessitates a modern approach to infrastructure operations. The NVIDIA BlueField data processing unit (DPU) ignites unprecedented innovation by offloading, accelerating, and isolating a broad range of advanced networking, storage, and security services, enabling BlueField DPUs to provide a secure and accelerated infrastructure from cloud to data centre to edge.

Through Mellanox's acquisition by NVIDIA, we have delivered a first-class optimised Ubuntu to every generation of the NVIDIA Bluefield DPUs, which are critical elements of NVIDIA's AI offerings.

Ubuntu and Bluefield

  • First OS to be certified, since 2018
  • OVN integrations for offload on to DPU
  • Native Ubuntu kernel support for MOFED for ConnectX NICs (with planned DPU support)
