Predictable outcomes for mission-critical applications

Reduce cloud costs

Instead of hiring an expert for each and every app, delegate management to Canonical and utilise our app expertise at a cost-effective price.

Maintain business focus

Apps remain performant at critical times with active monitoring and full life-cycle management - including scaling to your demand and high availability by default.

Reduce vendor complexity

Know who is accountable for performance, with a single vendor to cover multiple applications, across cloud types. All under one SLA and with a dashboard and LMA stack so the health of your cloud is always transparent.

Run your apps anywhere

Service and security you can trust

Enjoy peace of mind in the security of your apps and trust the quality of Canonical's managed service - we are MSPAlliance CloudVerify certified* - which is equivalent to SOC 2 Type2, ISO 27001 / ISO 27002, and GDPR compliance.

Deploy, operate, transfer and support

The best way to keep costs down and ensure applications are performant is to use a repeatable, standardised methodology for workload analysis, requirements gathering, deployment and operations.

  1. Design and deploy on any workload running Ubuntu

    Together, Canonical’s app engineers design the application architecture, specific to your unique infrastructure requirements*, and deploy your highly available application as a one-off engagement. Wherever your workloads are running Ubuntu, on all leading public clouds and on-premise providers, Canonical can deploy and manage your apps.

  2. We manage app operations

    Maintain your business focus by relying on experienced Canonical app engineers with full life-cycle coverage and 24/7 active monitoring to manage your mission-critical applications at scale.

  3. We transfer control

    As soon as your in-house team is ready to manage your apps at scale, Canonical will initiate the handover process and any training required upon request. Our engineers give teams full visibility from the beginning into every aspect of app management, performance and monitoring.

  4. We support your operations and infrastructure

    Canonical provides 24/7 enterprise telephone and ticket support with Ubuntu Advantage, the most comprehensive software, security and IaaS support subscription, covering all aspects of open source infrastructure. Since we know the architecture of your applications, problems are faster to debug and easier to resolve.
