Modular Debian image is only available for clients under our engineering services.
Docker is an open-source project that automates the deployment of Linux applications inside software containers.
Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything you can install on a server. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in.
In the image below, can see the new architecture of the Operating System(OS):
Traditional Linux Kernel.
The docker core layer, is the intermediary between our containers and Linux Kernel.
Inside of the containers you will find the necessary software abstractions to run properly the application. You can update your container and if something is wrong in this update only affects to this container. The rest part of the OS is not compromised.
We have implemented the automatically updates, you can have your OS with the latest containers version without flash again your SD Card.
