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

This primarily centres around Tumbleweed-Kubic, an openSUSE Tumbleweed variant focused on hosting container services. Tumbleweed-Kubic currently consists of two major components

  • 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.
  • kubeadm - A Kubernetes cluster bootstrapping tool integrated as part of Tumbleweed-Kubic to run atop openSUSE MicroOS
The source code of much of our Kubic-related tooling can be found on our GitHub Project
== Features ==


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

Articles, videos, etc.
