What is Snappy Ubuntu Core? A new, transactionally updated Ubuntu for the cloud.
Ubuntu Core is a new rendition of Ubuntu for the cloud with transactional updates. Ubuntu Core is a minimal server image with the same libraries as today’s Ubuntu, but applications are provided through a simpler mechanism. The snappy approach is faster, more reliable, and lets us provide stronger security guarantees for apps and users — that’s why we call them “snappy” applications.
Snappy apps and Ubuntu Core itself can be upgraded atomically and rolled back if needed — a bulletproof approach to systems management that is perfect for container deployments. It’s called “transactional” or “image-based” systems management, and we’re delighted to make it available on every Ubuntu certified cloud.
“Ubuntu Core provides transactional updates with rigorous application isolation,” said Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu and Canonical. “This is the smallest, safest platform for Docker deployment ever, and with snappy packages, it’s completely extensible to all forms of container or service. We’re excited to unleash a new wave of developer innovation with snappy Ubuntu!”
Snappy Ubuntu Core and Banana Pro/Pi LeMaker now has became the partner of Ubuntu, and is now porting the Snappy Ubuntu Core on to Banana Pro together with the excellent engineers from Ubuntu. In the near future, we will be able to use the Snappy Ubuntu Core on Banana Pro with any problem and take advantage of the strong perform of gigabits Ethernet on Banana Pro. As the Banana Pro is a low-cost and low power consumption SBC, so it will be very suitable to run the Snappy Ubuntu Core and be used in IoT applications.
