Canonical offers a distribution of upstream Kubernetes that is designed to work the same way on every infrastructure. Keep track of upstream changes through easy automated upgrades, and integrate your preferred monitoring system with a single command.
Ubuntu on public clouds
The most popular operating system across public clouds is Ubuntu, because we work closely with major cloud operators to optimise the kernel and system for their infrastructure, speed up security updates and minimise the cost of network or storage for users by default.
