Complementing Canonical's existing Ubuntu Pro subscription service for expanded security maintenance, live kernel patching, compliance and hardening, real-time kernel flavor support, and other enterprise/support add-ons, Canonical today announced Ubuntu Pro For Devices.

Ubuntu Pro For Devices is an expansion of the Ubuntu Pro subscription service to now cover IoT device deployments. Canonical used Embedded World in Nuremberg for announcing Ubuntu Pro For Devices to provide subscription-based support for IoT device deployments.

This will provide ten year security maintenance for Ubuntu LTS deployments on IoT devices, device management capabilities via Landscape, real-time Ubuntu kernel support, and the other existing Ubuntu Pro benefits.

IoT and embedded has been a big focus over the years for Ubuntu Linux with Ubuntu finding use from smart exercise mirrors and various other devices. Canonical has been partnering with various ODMs and as part of their IoT/embedded play pushing their tech like Snaps, Mir, and Ubuntu Core.
