Multipass Documentation

Welcome to the Multipass Guide!

Multipass is a mini-cloud on your workstation using native hypervisors of all the supported plaforms (Windows, macOS and Linux), it will give you an Ubuntu command line in just a click (“Open shell”) or a simple multipass shell command, or even a keyboard shortcut. Find what images are available with multipass find and create new instances with multipass launch.

You can initialize instances through cloud-init as you normally would on all the clouds Ubuntu is supported on, just pass the configuration to multipass launch --cloud-init.

Accessing files from your host machine is supported through the multipass mount command, and to move files between the host and instances, you can use multipass transfer.

Please learn more details in the linked documentation topics.
