  • Developers offered options of where to run either demanding workloads or less compute-intensive applications, in a highly available cloud environment.
  • Running development and production on Certified Ubuntu can simplify operations and reduce engineering costs

Certified Ubuntu images are now available in the Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services, providing developers with compute options ranging from single to 16 OCPU virtual machines (VMs) to high-performance, dedicated bare metal compute instances. This is in addition to the image already offered on Oracle Compute Cloud Service and maintains the ability for enterprises to add Canonical-backed Ubuntu Advantage Support and Systems Management. Oracle and Canonical customers now have access to the latest Ubuntu features, compliance accreditations and security updates.

“Oracle and Canonical have collaborated to ensure the optimal devops experience using Ubuntu on the Oracle Cloud Compute Cloud Service and Bare Metal Cloud Services. By combining the elasticity and ease of deployment on Oracle Cloud Platform, users can immediately reap the benefit of high-performance, high availability and cost-effective infrastructure services,” says Sanjay Sinha, Vice President, Platform Products, Oracle.

“Ubuntu has been growing on Oracle’s Compute Cloud Service, and the same great experience is now available to Enterprise Developers on its Bare Metal Cloud Services,” said Udi Nachmany, Head of Public Cloud at Canonical. “Canonical and Oracle engineering teams will continue to collaborate extensively to deliver a consistent and optimized Ubuntu experience across any relevant Oracle offerings.”

Canonical continually maintains, tests and updates certified Ubuntu images, making the latest versions available on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace within minutes of their official release by Canonical. For all Ubuntu LTS versions, Canonical provides maintenance and security updates for five years.
