Canonical is delighted to announce the availability of snappy Ubuntu Core on Amazon Web Services (AWS).  Snappy Ubuntu Core is a new ultra fast Ubuntu that is designed for extremely fast deployment on Amazon EC2.

Ubuntu Core is the new “snappy” rendition of the popular cloud OS, with a very lean and secure base image that features transactional updates for both system and applications. Snappy Ubuntu is perfect for container-oriented deployments using technologies like Docker.

Customers can try a beta version of snappy Ubuntu Core today on Amazon EC2 by launching an instance of Ubuntu Core. Here are the instructions.

Robbie Williamson, VP Cloud Engineering at Canonical says “The snappy Ubuntu Core approach is faster, more reliable, and provides stronger security guarantees for apps and users. We’re excited to make Ubuntu Core with snappy packages available on Amazon EC2 and Amazon EC2 Container Service.  Ubuntu Core on Amazon EC2 Container Service is a fast way to dive into containers on Ubuntu at scale.”

The beta of Ubuntu Core will run throughout the current Ubuntu development cycle.
