Canonical Announces Ubuntu Appliance Portfolio

Canonical recently announced the Ubuntu Appliance portfolio “to enable secure, self-healing, single-purpose devices.”  Along with other organizations, including Nextcloud, Mosquitto, Plex, and OpenHAB, Canonical has created a set of free appliance images that “transform a Raspberry Pi or PC into a secure, self-updating solution.” 

According to the Ubuntu blog, you can try out a virtual Ubuntu Appliance on any PC without affecting your existing system. In the blog post, Rhys Davies said, “one command runs an Ubuntu Appliance in a VM on Windows, Mac or Linux if you don’t have a Raspberry Pi or a spare PC.
