We strongly believe in the power of containers for embedded development at Foundries.io. However, in a world of buzzword bingo like Kubernetes, serverless, and Edge, people working on 32 bit Arm hardware would be right to feel neglected. This article discusses one way we are helping: building armhf containers efficiently.

OTA Updates

The OTA updatable OS for your next IoT or Edge Product

Why is there no Android or Red Hat Enterprise Linux for IoT and Edge devices? The "one size fits all" approach of a modern Linux distro does not meet the requirements of the IoT and Edge markets because of the diversity of hardware and use cases - from cellular-connected sensors, to industrial IoT infrastructure, to gateways and even autonomous vehicle computing. More complex use-cases and more powerful processors almost universally use some variant of Linux. Simpler devices such as sensors typically use an RTOS. In this article we focus on Linux - a future article will explore the many RTOS options.
