Huawei Releases openEuler Source, A CentOS-Based Linux Distribution

Huawei has released the source code of openEuler, a Linux distribution based on CentOS.

openEuler includes two organizations, one for source code and the other for packages sources. Currently there are 20+ repositories in the source code organization. Two projects, iSulad and A-Tune.

iSulad is a lightweight gRPC service-based container runtime. Compared to runc, iSulad is written in C but all interfaces are compatible with OCI. And A-Tune is a system software to auto-optimize the system adaptively to multiple scenarios with embedded AI-engine.

In addition, you will also see several infrastructure-supported projects that set up the community’s operating systems. According to the submission records of these projects, these systems are built on the Huawei Cloud through script automation.

The other organization is src-openeuler, which is used to store software packages. These packages are to be built to the ISO and installation packages of the openEuler operating system.

“We are very excited at this moment. It was hard to imagine that we will manage thousands of repositories. And to ensure that they can be compiled successfully, we would like to thank all those who participated in contributing”.

The biggest challenge in building this community is managing so many code repositories. Such an amount of repositories puts a lot of load on the entire infrastructure system.

If you want to test openEuler, you can download its ISO from Huawei’s official website. However, it should be pointed out that currently the documentation is not available in English yet.
