Ubuntu supports Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Ampere A1 Compute

May 25, 2021: Together with Oracle, Canonical announces an optimised Ubuntu image for the launch of  Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Ampere A1 Compute. Oracle Cloud customers will benefit from running Ubuntu, the most popular cloud operating system, on a secure, scalable, and highly cost-effective infrastructure.

“Ubuntu on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Ampere A1 Compute provides a high performing and cost-effective solution for all types of workloads. Ubuntu gives developers a highly optimized cloud operating system and kernel with excellent boot speed, strong security, and stellar stability,” said Matt Leonard, vice president, product management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. 

“Ampere and Canonical are partnering to bring cloud native solutions to the market. Together, we have optimized everything from the Ubuntu OS to OpenStack to K8s to Anbox Cloud for Ampere® Altra®. We are excited to see all of these technologies available to the market on the OCI Ampere A1 platform, which is available on the OCI Free Tier today,”  said Jeff Wittich, Chief Product Officer at Ampere Computing.

The same secure Ubuntu, now with Oracle Cloud optimized kernel and configurations. Combining the benefits of Ubuntu with the performance of Oracle’s new offering, enterprises can run traditional workloads in a cost optimised fashion. The ARM-based platform is also particularly suited for new use cases, such as Anbox Cloud, which allows organisations to run Android in the cloud at scale and securely. For this reason, Umony a supplier of compliance communication solutions for regulated markets will be integrating Anbox Cloud with the new Ampere A1 Compute instances.

“We needed a solution to run Android in the Cloud at scale – Anbox Cloud by Canonical let us do this. It gives us a solid foundation to build our compliance-focused products, and with the new OCI Ampere A1 Compute instances, we can significantly decrease our per Android instance cost as it can provide the needed density of running a huge number of Android devices per instance,” said Dean Elwood, CEO at Umony 

Anbox Cloud, Canonical’s solution to run Android at high scale on any cloud, benefits from the performance and density that OCI Ampere A1 Compute can provide. Running hundreds of Android containers for automation use cases becomes simple while providing great economics. 

Ubuntu on OCI Ampere A1 is available as a platform image in the OCI console now.

Canonical is the publisher of Ubuntu, the open-source operating system for most public cloud workloads and emerging categories of intelligent gateways, self-driving cars, and advanced robots. Canonical provides enterprise security, support, and services to commercial users of Ubuntu. Established in 2004, Canonical is a privately held company.
