App stores for software-defined things
Today’s devices are defined by software. Ubuntu is the world’s most widely trusted Linux for developers, providing the talent and tools to grow your app store and ecosystem.
Snaps allow developers to build and deploy applications in a format that’s easily portable and upgradeable across a number of IoT devices so that a cognitive relationship between the cloud and the edges of the network can be established.Mac Devine, IBM Vice President & CTO of Emerging Technology & Advanced Innovation
Update Control, and peace of mind included
Regular updates for the operating system and apps defend devices from ongoing attacks, addressing security issues automatically. Update Control ensures that changes are certified by manufacturers or ISVs. When a single security flaw can compromise millions of devices, or a bad update require a product recall, robust platform assurances provide confidence in the integrity of critical infrastructure.
Snaps for security
Ubuntu Core is an all-snap version of Ubuntu. A snap is a secure, easily upgraded, universal Linux package for an app and all its dependencies. Snaps are:
- Confined for strict security
- Transactional for reliable updates
- Compressed to save disk space
- Easy to create and distribute
- Widely adopted by industry leaders
