rpm-ostree: A true hybrid image/package system

rpm-ostree combines libostree (an image system), with libdnf (a package system), bringing many of the benefits of both together.

Features:

  • Transactional, background image-based (versioned/checksummed) upgrades
  • OS rollback without affecting user data (/usr but not /etc, /var) via libostree
  • Client-side package layering (and overrides)
  • Easily make your own: rpm-ostree compose tree

Projects using rpm-ostree

Project Atomic is an umbrella project for delivering upstream container technologies and combined with a minimized, atomically upgradable host system to Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and CentOS.

rpm-ostree is the underlying technology for host updates. The headlining project is "Atomic Host", which is a server variant oriented towards running Linux containers using e.g. Kubernetes. However, there is now also a Workstation variant, showing the full generality of the rpm-ostree model.
