Tools for the creation of your own Linux distribution are commonly referred to as the build system. Simplified, the purpose of a build system is to generate a suitable combination of a Linux kernel and appropriate programs and libraries. However, there are many aspects to take into consideration for this task: Reproducibility, security, the ability to update the compiled systems and manage open source licenses are just some of the aspects that need to be factored in.

There are two approaches on the market that are generally accepted for this field: Debian and Yocto.

Naturally, we offer our support with both approaches: With services, tooling and the training of your employees!
