SUSE Linux Enterprise Micro

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

Why SUSE Linux Enterprise Micro?

Enterprises want edge and embedded applications that are secure, require minimal maintenance, and are easy to deploy at scale.

01
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.

02
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.

03
Perfect for Containers & Kubernetes

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.

Architectural Flexibility

Both Arm and x86-64 architectures are supported so you can deploy edge applications with confidence across multiple architectures.

Kubernetes-Ready

You can easily combine SLE Micro with the latest cloud-native technologies including SUSE Rancher, RKE, Longhorn persistent block storage, and K3S, the world’s most popular Kubernetes distribution for use in low resource, distributed edge locations.
