Different business opportunities around cloud services powered by OpenStack
I work for the Product Strategy team at Canonical, leading Training and BootStack, the managed hosted (or on-prem) cloud service offered by the leading OpenStack OS company.

We manage your cloud as if it was our own, literally.

Canonical brings the abstraction to the Infrastructure layer and delivers a suite of products to run seamlessly your workloads, whether those are Big Data, scale-out applications, cloudfoundry platform, solution bundles, you name it.
