Introduction to MicroClouds

Introduction to MicroClouds

A micro cloud is a new class of infrastructure for on-demand computing at the edge. In this webinar we go over what MicroClouds are and why they should be a part of your edge strategy, finishing with a demo.

MicroCloud, now with OVN

This youtube video explains the technical side of MicroClouds, its components and the way it works. In addition, it includes a demo showing how easy it is to deploy MicroClouds.

Introducing MicroCeph

If you are interested in the storage side of MicroClouds, this video is a good place to learn more. It explains what MicroCeph is and how it can be used to setup an HA Ceph cluster easily, avoiding complex configuration that is usually needed.

How-tos and tutorials on the LXD Youtube channel

​MicroClouds use LXD for compute. This means that for running and operating your instances, as well as any other configuration, regular LXD operations apply. The LXD Youtube channel is a great place for tutorials on a variety of topics you may need for operating your cloud.

Case studies,whitepapers and reports

This whitepaper discusses the concept of MicroClouds, a new class of compute for the edge and decentralised environments. It's ideal to gain an understanding of edge computing constraints, values, graphics and use cases.

VMware migration to Ubuntu-based infrastructure

Many VMware users run infrastructure in smaller clusters, with each cluster dedicated to a specific purpose. Canonical's MicroCloud is an ideal fit for these use cases. Learn more about the migration scenarios in this whitepaper.
