SUSE Linux Enterprise Micro 6.0 Public Beta is out!


We are thrilled to announce the Beta2 of SUSE Linux Enterprise Micro 6.0!

SUSE Linux Enterprise Micro 6.0 is a modern operating system primarily targeted for edge computing.

It is an ultra-reliable, lightweight operating system purpose built for containerized and virtualized workloads. It leverages the enterprise hardened security and compliance components of SUSE Linux Enterprise and merges them with a modern, immutable, developer-friendly OS platform.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Micro 6.0 will build upon the momentum generated by the previous Releases.

SLE Micro 6.0 is based on new code base, enhanced with select features based on customer and partner requests, as well as internal feedback. The focus is migrating to the new code base ensuring a smooth migration for existing customers.
