Tiny Footprint, Enterprise-Grade and Mission-Critical by Design.

SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) Micro is a lightweight immutable OS that’s optimized for edge use cases - embedded devices, real time applications and industrial IoT. Immutable design ensures OS is not altered during runtime and runs reliably every single time.

SLE Micro’s tiny footprint is 3x smaller than SLE Server without compromising on enterprise-grade security or quality.

100% open source and built using open standards, SLE Micro leverages SLE common code base, to provide FIPS 140-2, DISA SRG/STIG, integration with CIS and Common Criteria certified configurations.

SLE Micro is prepared to support long product lifecycles so you can deploy systems that are designed to last a very long time.

Developers love SLE Micro.

SLE Micro’s modular architecture maximizes developer agility and flexibility in edge use cases. Our goal is zero maintenance. So, all routine maintenance functions like patches, updates, config changes are seamless.

You can provision and install without reboot using YOMI or AutoYaST and fully automate initial configuration with Ignition. Built-in health checks ensure an optimized run time environment with auto-checks for errors during booting and snapshots. Security signed and verified transactional updates are easy to rollback if things go wrong.

You have flexibility in choosing the right hardware platform for your edge applications - both Arm 64bit and x86-64 architectures are supported.

Perfect for Containers.

SLE Micro is built from ground up to support containers and microservices. Workloads are isolated from the core filesystem to guard against malicious applications compromising the system.

Using SLE Micro, you can build and scale differentiating edge systems across a wide range of industries including aerospace, telecom, automotive, defense, healthcare, and manufacturing.
