Canonical brings to you ‘Ubuntu Cloud Day’, the largest event in Bangalore on the subject, to be held on April 4th, 2012. Tailor made for engineers and developers with a professional interest in using Ubuntu Cloud as a developer along with a keen interest for developing innovative applications for the Ubuntu user base. The event aims to introduce developers and engineers to the Ubuntu Cloud, which is fast gaining popularity across the world. With keynote speeches from various members of the Canonical Cloud team, as well as hands-on technical sessions, the day is designed to deliver an enriching experience for any developer to rapidly be brought up-to-speed on Ubuntu Cloud and the latest developments in the same. The sessions will also cover the intricacies of building your own cloud infrastructure with Ubuntu - manage cloud workloads on your own servers and send identical workloads to the public cloud when you need extra capacity. "Last year we received over 900 registered attendees for the Ubuntu Developer Day. We are expecting a similar response this year for the Ubuntu Cloud Day, and are restricting entry to the first 200 registrations. Ubuntu is the leading platform for cloud computing and we are seeing huge demand from Indian companies to work with us to develop their cloud infrastructure." said Prakash Advani, Regional Manager, Asia Pacific, Canonical.

Canonical’s vision of a unified free platform in Ubuntu, from phone to cloud, with a family of coherent interfaces for the phone, tablet, TV and desktop, makes Ubuntu the first choice for diverse institutions from public cloud providers to the makers of consumer electronics, and a favourite among individual technologists. With developers and engineering centres around the world, Canonical is uniquely positioned to partner with hardware makers, content providers and software developers to bring Ubuntu solutions to market - from PCs to servers and handheld devices. Linux was already established as an enterprise server platform in 2004. But free software was still not a part of everyday life for most computer users. That's why Mark Shuttleworth gathered a small team of developers from one of the most established Linux projects – Debian - and set out to create an easy-to-use Linux desktop, Ubuntu. Ubuntu is different from the commercial Linux offerings that preceded it because it doesn't divide its efforts between a high-quality commercial version and a free, 'community' version. The commercial and community teams collaborate to produce a single, high-quality release, which receives ongoing maintenance for a defined period. Both the release and ongoing updates are freely available to all users.
