Defining Ubuntu Per-device Services

3/1/2022

Ubuntu service from Advantech Benefits

Ubuntu is considered among the world’s best Linux desktop operating systems. As integration within IoT continues, Ubuntu is increasingly tasked with running robotics gateways, self-driving cars, drones, and consumer electronics alongside other diverse applications. Accordingly, there is a wide range of new services, delivered by IPC manufacturers, that facilitate the use of Ubuntu.

Defining Ubuntu Per-device Services

  • Ubuntu Per-device service fee: A paid sticker for each device with Ubuntu inside.
  • Ubuntu Per-device service content: After purchase to the Ubuntu per-device service fee, users can enjoy basic Advantech and Canonical services. This includes security and maintenance updates and 5 years of standard technical, long-term support.

Ubuntu Certification Benefits

  • Ubuntu certified device: Certification designates device compatibility with Ubuntu. Advantech further provides a comprehensive test report that ensures initial device operation with Ubuntu. 
  • Ubuntu certified service: Following certification, tri-weekly testing from Canonical ensures the kernel, OS, and security updates are compatible with the certified device without regression.
