Now enterprises can have their apps deployed and operated by Canonical as a fully managed service, and focus on business priorities instead. With the launch of Managed Apps, Canonical will now manage databases including MySQL, InfluxDB, PostgreSQL, MongoDB and ElasticSearch, the NFV management and orchestration application, Open Source Mano, and the event streaming platform.
- Managed Apps allow DevOps teams to eliminate the complexity in maintaining their infrastructure. Whether a start-up or large enterprise, organisations can accelerate the deployment and provisioning of their mission-critical apps through Canonical’s managed service.
- App reliability can be assured with Canonical’s Managed apps service covering demand-based scaling, high availability for fault tolerance, security patching and updates.
- To ensure apps remain performant at critical times, Canonical Managed Apps offer full lifecycle management including resource-scaling based on changes in demand, as well as offering high availability by default.
- By covering ten of the most widely used open source apps, and with plans to expand further, Canonical’s Managed Apps remove the need for enterprises to contract with multiple vendors.
- All Managed Apps customers also benefit from support for their underlying infrastructure, as their subscription includes Ubuntu Advantage for Infrastructure, covering all aspects of open infrastructure including Ubuntu, Kubernetes, OpenStack, Ceph and more.
