A new wave of Operating Systems optimized for containers appeared on the horizon making us excited and puzzled at the same time.

"Why do we need anything different for containers when traditional OSs served us well in the last 25+ years?" "Isn't Kubernetes just another package to install on top of my favorite distro?" "Will this obsolete my whole infrastructure?" are some of the questions this talk will shed some light on.

Explore the journey SUSE made in rethinking the OS: From a conservative Linux distribution to a platform that goes hand in hand with the needs of Microservices.

You will get an insight at what lessons were learned during the intense development effort that lead to SUSE Containers as a Service Platform, how the obstacles along the way were lifted and why "Upstream first" is - and should always be - the rule.
