A Imaging and Creating Products Edit source

To adapt the operating system better to your deployment, you can create custom media for use as an appliance or live system with KIWI. KIWI can be used either on a local machine or online in SUSE Studio Express (OBS).

With KIWI, you can create Live CDs, Live DVDs, flash disks to use on Linux-supported hardware platforms and virtual disks for virtualization and cloud systems (like Xen, KVM, VMware, EC2 and more). Images created by KIWI can also be used in a PXE environment to boot from the network.

This guide does not cover topics related to KIWI in depth, as there is separate documentation available:

  • For more information, see the KIWI documentation at https://github.com/openSUSE/kiwi (also available in the package kiwi-doc).

  • SUSE Studio Express on Open Build Service can be used to create OS images online. It supports creating virtual appliances and live systems, based on either openSUSE or SUSE Linux Enterprise. For more information and documentation, see https://studioexpress.opensuse.org/.
