Linux Containers on a Small Device – a Good Idea? Vortragssprache Englisch

Software containers are gaining popularity as a way to package and deploy software solutions, mostly for the cloud. Are they also suitable for relatively small devices? Think it does not make sense server space technologies to resource-constrained devices? If so, you may want to consider that one of the most popular embedded OSs (Linux) is based on Unix, an OS which was designed to run on mainframes. Things can be adapted and adapting containers to run on devices may make sense in many scenarios. I will show how containers can be leveraged for embedded devices. We will also look into the drawbacks and weigh them against the advantages so that we can assess which problems are best served by containers.
