Welcome to the Kubic Portal Edit

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

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

  • openSUSE MicroOS - an openSUSE based operation system 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 openSUSE Kubic to run atop openSUSE MicroOS.
The source code for much of our Kubic related tooling can be found in our GitHub Project.
Downloads Edit
Important: pre-built system images leverage a first boot configuration system. Most of the images use Combustion and Ignition, OpenStack uses Cloud-Init.

The configuration file for those systems has to be created before the first boot of an image. Kubic does not use any default password even for root, so be sure to use one Combustion, Ignition or Cloud-Init were applicable.

Based on Tumbleweed
