Canonical & Intel Announce "Enterprise Grade" Ubuntu Images For Next-Gen Intel IoT

Canonical announced today they have collaborated with Intel to provide new enterprise-grade Ubuntu images designed for next-gen Intel IoT platforms.

Canonical will be offering up new spins of both Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and 22.04 LTS and both server and desktop flavors intended for Intel IoT use. These new images are said to deliver performance, safety, and end-to-end security for Internet of Things use-cases. Ubuntu Core 20 and Ubuntu Core 22 images optimized for Intel IoT are also expected to be released soon. Like Ubuntu Long Term Support releases in general, they will be maintained for ten years.

The Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and 22.04 LTS images are relying on the Linux 5.15 LTS kernel and intended for current and future Intel Core and Atom platforms.

Canonical hasn't exactly spelled out what technical differences will make up these new "enterprise grade" Ubuntu IoT images compared to the standard Ubuntu LTS images. In fact, it was last November already that Canonical previously announced Ubuntu optimized images for Intel CPUs. Since then I hadn't heard anything more on the matter until today's announcement of new Canonical+Intel backed optimized images.

In any event those wanting to learn more about these new "enterprise grade" Ubuntu images for Intel IoT can find the announcement on
