openSUSE Leap 15.2 Adds AI Machine Learning

Jul 02, 2020

With the new release of openSUSE Leap comes some exciting new features, including machine learning.

For openSUSE users, there’s some very exciting news for the release of the latest iteration, 15.2. This new take on the platform includes several new packages into the mix that add both artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. The packages that bring these two new features include Tensorflow (a framework for deep learning), PyTorch (a machine learning library), and ONNX (an open format for machine learning models that provides interoperability in the AI tool space).

Other new features to openSUSE Leap 15.2 include Grafana and Prometheus packages for analytical experts. The latest release also has a real time kernel available (which is beneficial for systems that need to process tasks in given time, else the task may fail). For container administrators, there’s finally an official Kubernetes package available. On top of the official Kubernetes package, the Helm Kubernetes package manager has been added to give a boost to container orchestration capabilities. To help make container orchestration more efficient, Container Runtime Interface using Open Container Initiative conformant runtimes has been included and serves as a lightweight alternative to the Docker runtime. For network and security admins, Cilium can aid in transparently securing network connectivity and load balancing between application containers.

openSUSE Leap 15.2 also offers Server and Transactional Server system roles. The Server role includes a small set of packages best suited for GUI-less servers, while the Transactional Server role is similar to the Server system role, only it makes use of a read-only filesystem for atomic and automatic updates.
