Tele2, one of the most famous telecommunications companies in Europe announced yesterday its collaboration with Canonical, A collaboration that will improve the services of Tele2 to its customers.
Tele2 is working to offer 5G to its customers, being one of the pioneering companies in these services, for which Tele2 will make use of OpenStack and Juju Charms, Two Canonical platforms that will offer cloud and virtualization solutions so that any Tele2 user or customer gets the maximum possible services with the least possible expense or hassle.
So Tele2 is another of large companies who are interested in Canonical’s OpenStack, a platform that is giving as good results as Ubuntu gave at the time to Canonical and that demonstrates once again the power that Ubuntu Server has in the business field.
Tele2 will use this technology to advance 5G
However this collaboration bears more fruit for Canonical than for Tele2. When working with a telecommunications company, Canonical is assuring that its platform will be known and by extension its mobile platform, Ubuntu Phone, a platform that is growing and although in Europe it is already famous, in other parts of the world it is still unknown.
Either way, the business fruits of Canonical are bearing fruit, Not only creating alliances and strategic platforms such as Ubuntu Core or OpenStack but also make the sweetest or most affordable GNU / Linux known to less inexperienced users. Personally I haven’t tried either Juju or OpenStack yet though I keep acknowledging the merits of Ubuntu, Canonical, and Ubuntu Server. Its products and efficiency are as good as what IBM offered decades ago but unfortunately Canonical does not have the same prominence as IBM, although from time to time Don’t you believe?
