Global IoT DevFest III

Using Containers in Embedded Applications


Software containers are not a new technology, but their recent adaptation to the embedded industry offers new ways to dynamically deploy services on embedded devices that were once locked down by monolithic software stacks. Since embedded devices are typically low-power solutions with smaller footprints, new ways of managing embedded applications in containers becomes critical for creating extensible solutions with relatively limited system resources available.

An embedded device is more constrained for compute power, network throughput, and available storage, making it more challenging to run enterprise class containers and still maintain an acceptable level of system performance and flexibility.

In this session, learn how using an embedded container system unlocks the potential of smaller-footprint devices by creating an optimized flexible platform that meets the unique system level demands of IoT devices.
