Building operating systems optimized for containers, from IoT to desktops and servers
2022-07-04, 16:35–17:10 (Europe/Paris), Amphitheater

Containers on Linux are a powerful abstraction that help isolate applications from one another. They are now available everywhere: to run applications from small IoT devices to large cloud servers, to easily setup development environments and to enable distribution independent packaging with Flatpak on desktops.

In this talk we will go over several variants of Fedora that are focused on containers: Fedora IoT, Fedora CoreOS and Fedora Silverblue/Kinoite. We will look at what makes them particularly well suited to host containers and how their design leads to increased security without compromising their usability.
