Canonical Makes It Easier to Deploy MAAS (Metal as a Service) as a Snap Package

Canonical designed MAAS to help promote and automate the deployment and dynamic provisioning of hyperscale computing environments like cloud services or big data workloads. While MASS is an open-source and free-to-use product, Canonical also offer commercial support to its enterprise customers. As Canonical vowed to advance its Snappy technologies for future versions of Ubuntu Linux, we’re seeing more and more applications being packaged as Snaps for easier distribution across multiple operating systems, but also to allow users to consume the latest releases of these products.
