    Ubuntu 18.04 ‘Bionic Beaver’ is reaching End of Standard Support this April, also known sometimes as End Of Life (EOL). This distribution of Ubuntu was installed by millions of users and powers up thousands of devices. From kiosks and appliances to IoT devices and robots, 18.04 helped many companies deploy innovations to the world. As with all other Ubuntu LTS releases that reach their end of standard support, Bionic Beaver will transition to Extended Security Maintenance (ESM). This blog post will help developers and companies evaluate their options for devices currently running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. It will also cover how you can enable ESM in case you choose to extend the support window with this service. ..we obviously need to move distributions to the ESM period. ..

    ESM enables continuous vulnerability management for critical, high and medium Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs). During this period, we no longer improve the distribution, but we keep it secure. We offer ESM for the benefit of our users. Some cannot migrate and need to keep their infrastructure running reliably and securely. Therefore, we provide 5 more years of critical security to those organisations. This is a paid service, as engineering time and resources are still needed to provide these updates. A paid service that is still cheaper than the actual cost for organisations to do all of this maintenance in-house…
