Description of App


Multipass provides a command line interface to launch, manage and generally fiddle about with instances of Linux. The downloading of a minty-fresh image takes a matter of seconds, and within minutes a VM can be up and running.

The Register
Ubuntu LTS on tap
Launch instances of Ubuntu and initialize them with cloud-init metadata just like AWS, Azure, Google, IBM and Oracle clouds.
Up to date
Automatically fetch and maintain the freshest Ubuntu image from Canonical. Never waste time on updates at launch.
Pet, and cattle
Your ‘primary’ instance gets special treatment with integration to your native filesystem and dedicated hot-key access.
Native hypervisor
Hyper-V, HyperKit, Virtualbox and KVM are all natively used for the fastest startup time.
Optimised guests
Custom tuned Ubuntu kernel is used for each hypervisor for the best I/O and performance.
Platform integration
Share files and folders between your normal home directory and your instances.
