Collection: openEuler Open Source OS



The openEuler platform is positioned as an enterprise-class, reliable, and secure digital infrastructure operating system that unleashes diversified computing power. Open source contributes to the creation of a sustainable future. With the goal of building an open, diversified, and architecture-inclusive software ecosystem, the openEuler open source community is available to global developers. As a superior operating system for all scenarios, it supports multi-architecture computing, including server, cloud, edge, and embedded applications.

Full Support for All-Scenario Digital Infrastructure Devices

All-scenario OS: openEuler proposes full-stack atomic decoupling in order to support flexible versioning and service combining. This OS supports server, cloud, edge, and embedded scenarios using a unified OS architecture.

Interconnecting with OpenHarmony for Shared Ecosystem Capabilities

1. Diversified computing power: openEuler supports mainstream chips such as Intel, AMD, Kunpeng, Phytium, Zhaoxin, Loongson, Hygon, and ShenWei chips, and multiple processing units such as NPUs, GPUs, and DPUs. It also has complete test specifications for hardware and software compatibility. It meets requirements for diversified computing capabilities in the digital era.

2. Convergence for all scenarios: openEuler unifies kernel, build, SDK, connection, and development tool capabilities in order to resolve OS-device incompatibility issues, resulting in a 10% to 15% improvement in performance. Developers can design applications that run natively on openEuler by using a developer-friendly toolkit provided by openEuler.
