    How Devices Use Docker

    Oct 9, 2020
    A fairly common question I get asked is how Factory devices securely pull container images from our Docker Registry, hub.foundries.io. It's kind of interesting, so I thought I'd explain.

    What's a Target?

    May 14, 2020
    A Foundries Factory is a unique new concept. Conceptualizing a Factory can sometimes seem difficult. I've encountered this enough to see a common problem - we are looking at things the wrong way.

    Apr 17, 2020
    Back in December, we laid out a roadmap for container orchestration. Then the dust settled from the Docker spinoff. What we now know is that Docker Apps is an inactive project. tldr; It's not a big deal for our customers and they are going to automagically get something better very soon:

    The OTA updatable OS for your next IoT or Edge Product

    Jul 5, 2019
    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.
