Ubuntu on OCI container registries

Ubuntu is one of the world’s most popular container images, a minimalistic Ubuntu image that offers the same security, versatility, and update cadence as other Ubuntu offerings. It is a developer favourite in container registries such as Docker Hub, with up to 30,000 pulls per week.

Available in all major OCI container registries, such as Microsoft’s ACR, Amazon’s ECR, and of course, Docker Hub, as an official image from a verified publisher - Canonical.

A base container for trusted application images. Container image provenance is a key aspect of any supply chain. The Ubuntu container image offers the ideal starting point for your application images, both in utility and trustworthiness.

Compatible with multiple platforms and available in different flavours. The Ubuntu container image is published as a multi-arch Open Container Initiative (OCI) image, available for amd64, arm, arm64, ppc64le and s390x. Ubuntu Pro is also available for containers, which means hardened and security-enhanced versions of the public Ubuntu container image are also available.
