Torizon is built as a modular system. It can be easily adjusted to your needs without the learning curve of the Yocto Project, and every part is updatable to keep your system secure. TorizonCore is a lightweight base system that contains the Linux Kernel and basic services, such as an over-the-air client and an optional container runtime. TorizonCore is free open-source software.
TorizonCore runs on Toradex SoMs, while the Torizon platform comprises not only TorizonCore and software that run on top of it, but also cloud hosted services and any other parts of Torizon that are not directly run on Toradex hardware.
Built with OpenEmbedded/Yocto
Optional docker container runtime
Free Open-source Software
Support for mainline and downstream kernels
Based on Linux microPlatform

Software containers are a popular concept in the cloud computing field. A container contains applications and required software packages while sharing the kernel with the rest of the system. This allows for simpler application deployment and updatability while increasing security.
Simpler over-the-air updates
Small resource footprint compared to virtual machines
Access to hardware acceleration
