Talking to Ubuntu’s Mark Shuttleworth re: Containers, IoT, Project Sputnik and Cloud

Yesterday at ContainerCon here in Seattle I ran into Mark Shuttleworth,  founder of Canonical and the man behind Ubuntu.  I asked Mark about some of the efforts Canonical has been focusing on recently and this is what he had to say:

This is what Mark had to say:

Some of the ground Mark covers:

  • Ubuntu on the mainframe
  • LXC (client) and LXD (on servers) which creates, migrates and kills containers
  • The recent Microsoft announcement that REST APIs from LXD will be implemented on windows
  • Canonical’s IoT work which leverages their efforts in the mobile area.
  • How Ubuntu Snappy works, why they built it and where are all the places its being used including drones
  • Their OpenStack work including connecting LXD w/openstack and using containers instead of VMs.  Also how to make much larger openstack clouds and build the ecosystem.
  • Props for the 4th Generation of Project Sputnik, the XPS 13 developer edition laptop

Pau for now…
