ICALEPCS 21 : Linux Distribution and Ecosystem Evolution in Control Systems Workshop

Thomas Oulevey (CERN)

The Linux distribution landscape keeps evolving and new technologies emerging. It's a good time to discuss new concepts for operating system deployment and distribution of in-house software.

From Workstation and Servers to Embedded Systems, this workshop aims at gathering participants to present their use-cases and have an open discussion on operating system life cycle and associated challenges.

One key point is also to review the status of emerging architectures such as aarch64, ppc64le, RISCV and see how it may impact future choices.
