Canonical has teamed up with Docker to distribute its free and commercial software through Docker Hub as a Docker Verified Publisher.
The collaboration will ensure that hardened free and commercial Ubuntu images will be available to all developer software supply chains for multi-cloud app development.
This partnership covers both free and commercial Canonical LTS images. So developers can confidently pull the latest images straight from the source without concern for rate limits.
As a Docker Verified Publisher, Canonical joins a list of over 200 ISVs using Docker Hub to distribute their software to developers where they get their work done.
When Docker Hub users see the Docker “Verified Publisher” mark, they know that the containers they are pulling come straight from, and are supported by, the ISV publisher.
As part of this agreement, Docker and Canonical will also collaborate in the coming months on the Ubuntu versions of Docker Official images to extend the quality of these already trusted and widely-used images.
