Eurotech and Canonical To Collaborate On Integrated Edge Computing Solutions

AMARO (Italy), October 16, 2018 Eurotech (ETH:IM), a long-time leading provider of embedded technologies and one of the pioneers and leader in Internet of Things (IoT) enablement, is pleased to announce a new technological partnership with Canonical to further expand the choice of operating systems on its Edge Computing products and solutions.

As part of this partnership, Eurotech will collaborate with Canonical to add Ubuntu as an additional operating system on its Edge Computing offering starting from Eurotech’s unique liquid-cooled High Performance Embedded Computers (HPEC) designed for demanding Artificial Intelligence on the Edge applications like fully autonomous driving. 

Canonical will also engage in the Eclipse Kura project, the popular open-source Java based IoT Edge Framework, by publishing a Snap - the universal Linux application packaging format - making Kura available on a wider number of Linux distributions and supported across more hardware. Snap support will also be provided on Eurotech’s commercially supported version, Everyware Software Framework (ESF).  When Kura is deployed as a Snap on a device, management is easier with automatic updates to the latest version and in a more secure, confined environment.

“We are proud to start this new technological partnership with Canonical. IoT and AI on the Edge are eco-system plays. With the collaboration between Eurotech and Canonical, customers will have even more choices and more ready-to-use building blocks for their Edge Computing and Edge Inference projects” says Marco Carrer, Eurotech Group CTO.

“Through this partnership, Canonical and Eurotech will help enable further innovation and development for customers building Edge computing projects whilst reducing complexity. In addition, having Kura available as a Snap will open the framework up to a wider pool of developers to benefit from” says Tom Canning, VP of Global Sales, IoT & Devices at Canonical.
