Fully managed Kubernetes cloud, by Canonical
Focus on your business while Canonical builds and manages your Kubernetes infrastructure. Take advantage of your on-premise assets and leverage one or more public clouds for your multi cloud strategy.
Canonical will set-up and operate your Kubernetes cluster for you, with in-house experts on-hand at all times to stand-up and scale your cluster. And, when you're ready, we will hand over operational control.
- Fully managed Kubernetes on your bare metal, VMWare, OpenStack or any public cloud
- Built in two weeks using a proven reference architecture with our Kubernetes consulting packages
- Customise the architecture in iterations based on workloads
- Enterprise class SLA for the infrastructure, upgrades included
- Monitoring and log management integration
Budget friendly, reliable and supported
Cloud infrastructure needs to be economically competitive with public cloud, and it needs to be fast and reliable. Our experience with OpenStack at scale and meeting complex regulatory requirements ensures that we deliver efficient and resilient private clouds with an SLA to match.
Predictable capital expenditures (CAPEX) and predictable operating expenses (OPEX) means the benefits of long-term density accrue to your bottom line directly.
Every Kubernetes cluster built by Canonical is always automatically upgradable to newer versions. Absolutely no snowflakes!
Choose a support model that fits your needs. Our world-class customer success team provides a fully managed service all the time so you can focus on your business, while we focus on your workloads.
Build, operate, transfer and support
The best way to keep costs down and ensure a high quality cloud is to use a repeatable, standardised methodology for workload analysis, requirements gathering, deployment and operations.
1 Design and build
Together, we design your OpenStack and Kubernetes cloud based on your hardware, scale, roadmap, applications and monitoring system. This happens on your site and in your preferred data center. We’ll guide you through the hardware specification process to maximise the efficiency of your capex, and we’ll tailor the architecture of your cloud to meet your application, security, regulatory and integration requirements.
2 We operate your cloud
We take responsibility for the remote management and 24/7 availability of your Kubernetes and OpenStack cloud. Your SLA covers uptime and performance. Your hardware and software are proactively monitored. Scale on demand with additional racks.
For as long as you want, Canonical will tend to the infrastructure so that you can tend to your business workloads. The most important thing for a new private cloud is engagement with development and operations teams, to build confidence in the private cloud for application hosting. This will prove the business case for your OpenStack and ensure high service levels during the critical early stages of your journey.
3 We transfer control
On request, we’ll give you the keys. We provide training and a handover process with on-site cloud reliability engineers to ensure a smooth handover.
Not everyone wants to operate Kubernetes and OpenStack, for many people the benefit of the cloud is freedom from the infrastructure layer and BootStack offers that in your own data center. But if you do want to take control, you have full visibility from the very beginning on every aspect of cloud management, performance tuning, log aggregation and monitoring. There’s no better way to learn Kubernetes and OpenStack than to run a cloud shoulder to shoulder with Canonical.
4 We support your operations
Once you have control of the cloud, Canonical provides 24/7 enterprise telephone support. Since we know the architecture of your cloud, problems are faster to debug and easier to resolve.
Security first — trusted by the OpenStack majority
OpenStack underpins our managed Kubernetes Private Cloud offering. Canonical, a founding member of OpenStack, provides security updates for thousands of production OpenStack clouds worldwide. We offer multi-year maintenance for stable cloud deployments and upgrades for those who want to move to newer versions.
The OpenStack super-users who run the largest and most complex Openstack deployments choose Ubuntu because of our quality and security. Canonical will help you meet telco, finance and government sector audit and compliance standards.
Fits your multi-cloud strategy
We recommend a multi-cloud operations strategy for the best mix of latency and price across both fixed and variable workloads. Canonical is a leading partner for all major public clouds, so we deliver cloud-neutral advice for both private and public operations. The right location for a workload should be driven by economics, not habit. Give yourself the freedom to choose.

A SELECTION OF CUSTOMERS
Refresh your data centre with managed Kubernetes on OpenStack
Predictable CAPEX and OPEX
Dedicated hardware is the most cost-effective for long-term workloads. BootStack costs are predictable per server per month.
Elasticity and agility
We scale your cloud on demand. Just call to let us know there are additional racks in the DC. We’ll remotely test the hardware and expand your OpenStack with zero down time.
We operate the OpenStack, you run your apps. The real benefit of cloud is the ability to focus exclusively on business apps and differentiation. Your private cloud should be the same.
Cloud native storage
Use proven software‐defined storage like Ceph, NexentaEdge, and Swift in your BootStack, or integrate your existing SAN.
Your team can monitor every machine in the OpenStack cloud, and be trained to operate the cloud themselves. We will transfer operations to them on request.
As OpenStack evolves, your private cloud can be upgraded with zero down time. Canonical guarantees upgrades to newer versions of OpenStack on request. Nobody else does.
Operate standard software workloads exactly the same way on public clouds and OpenStack. A large portfolio of open source solutions and best practices.
Real-time login integration with your corporate Active Directory or LDAP infrastructure means better security and happier users.
Canonical OpenStack works with the widest range of SDNs, from Neutron OVS/OVN and flat provider networks to Cisco ACI, Calico and Juniper Contrail.
