SUSE is well known for the standard enterprise linux distribution (aka SLES). As a result, most of the customers we have are not cloud-native, so cool stuff like microservices and serverless are no gonna happen within the day for them. There is a very good chance that some old monoliths running in Cobol today, will continue running in the same way for the next 10 years. However, companies are evolving and some parts of the business might (or they can be already) converted into containers. So what happens now? They have to keep maintaining two infrastructures:
* a modern kubernetes infrastructure
Currently we have two sponsored 3D printers available in the Nuremberg office. Both are located in a lab - which makes it hard to access them. Both also need some (hardware) maintenance.
This (hopefully short) side project should make the printers more usable and accessible for others.
