Welcome to the Kubic Portal edit

openSUSE Kubic is a Project maintaining multiple container-related technologies as part of the openSUSE Project.

These include

  • openSUSE MicroOS - an openSUSE Tumbleweed based OS providing Transactional (Atomic) Updates upon a read-only btrfs root filesystem, designed to host container workloads with automated administration & patching.
  • Tumbleweed-Kubic - a Container as a Service Platform based on Kubernetes atop openSUSE MicroOS
  • Velum - a dashboard for openSUSE & SUSE Container as a Service

The Kubic Project acts as the upstream for SUSE CaaS Platform

The source code of Velum and much of our Kubic-related tooling can be found on our GitHub Project

Topics edit



Installing the openSUSE MicroOS System Role from Kubic you get a quick, small environment for experimenting with Containers, or any other workload that benefits from Transactional Updates

MicroOS will also soon be offered as Virtual Machine Images


Tumbleweed-Kubic currently offers the following supported System Roles which can be selected during Installation

Alpha System Roles

In the Future, Tumbleweed-Kubic will also support the following System Roles which will allow you to set up, configure, and manage an entire Kubernetes cluster simply and painlessly.

Currently these are considered [Alpha] quality and are not expected to work.

  • "Admin/Dashboard Node" - openSUSE MicroOS plus Velum to provide a management controller for your Kubic Kubernetes Cluster
  • "Cluster Node" - openSUSE MicroOS plus Kubernetes automatically configured through Velum to act as a Kubernetes Master or Worker
