Canonical Offering Managed Apps to Help Organizations Modernize

By Stefania Viscusi

The global COVID-19 pandemic that our nation is still battling fiercely has changed the business landscape in many ways. For those organizations that are finally taking on a digital transformation, there’s a lot to take in. Understanding what IT and managed services they need and having applications created to fill their specific operational requirements are what’s emerging now.

To help with getting businesses moved over to more modern applications that use Kubernetes clusters, Canonical has announced it is now offering complimentary databases and tools for customers.

In a basic sense, Kubernetes clusters work to define the applications used and workloads running as well as other details and configurations that run in a cluster.

The company said it is offering apps that can be used for 10 most popular open-source services and will manage and update them for customers to help simplify enterprise cloud operations and so that they can focus on other priorities.

Databases to be manged by Canonical include: MySQL, InfluxDB, PostgreSQL, MongoDB and ElasticSearch, the NFV management and orchestration application, Open Source Mano, and the event streaming platform, Kafka.

“As organizations increasingly move to a cloud-native approach, they can be slowed down by spending too much time on the underlying management of their cloud and its applications,” said Stephan Fabel, Director of Product at Canonical. “Our Managed Apps give them the freedom to focus on business priorities, with the confidence that their apps are reliably maintained, secure and can scale to production needs.”

With IT environments changing quickly, especially now as businesses are forced to take their operations online and allow remote work, it has become critical that IT teams best utilize their resources and create applications that are needed without wasting valuable time on managing infrastructure.
