Discover the Cloud and Scale Out World of Ubuntu on IBM

Ubuntu & IBM

With 70+% usage in public clouds, docker, scale out workloads and large Openstack deployments Ubuntu is the choice for the next generation.

The future is changing. Most of the interesting new workloads are big distributed systems – many pieces of complex software that need to be set up and configured across many different hosts. They are much more complex than traditional software and skills to do this are very rare.

With Cloud you can have virtual hardware up in minutes. This casts a harsh spotlight on the days / weeks it takes to simply deploy the latest scale-out software.

Many companies, such as Time Warner, Bloomberg, Deutsche Telekom, Walmart, Netflix, Uber, Instagram, Wikipedia and over 65% of all major Openstack clouds and 70% of public clouds run on Ubuntu. They know that they have to think about compute infrastructure and tooling differently as they building new systemsand workloads on their Datacenter 2.0 infrastructure. It is critical to move towards Google type operational efficiency, agility and productivity. Ubuntu on IBM is the answer.

In this webinar you will not only hear about Ubuntu but also about a future driven by advanced application modeling, reusable component and automated deployment and configuration.

Host Dustin Kirkland will talk about the hot workloads in business today and the reason why Ubuntu has been the defacto choice. Not only will he provide use cases but he will also demonstrate advanced tooling that completely simplifies large, complex scale out applications and operations. We will also discuss why IBM is a great choice for Ubuntu and how you can get immediate access to this world on your existing IBM infrastructure.

Ample time will be given to audience interaction and Q&A.

This is a must see webinar.
