Canonical was created alongside Ubuntu to help it reach a wider market. Our services help governments and businesses the world over with migrations, management and support for their Ubuntu deployments. Together with our partners, we ensure that Ubuntu runs reliably on every platform from the PC and the smartphone to the server and, crucially, the cloud.

We believe in the power of open source software; Ubuntu could not exist without its worldwide community of voluntary developers. We are committed to creating it, refining it, certifying it for reliability and promoting its use. As well as launching and running our own projects, we contribute staff, code and funding to many more.
