#645 Infographics for marketing: Fedora IoT
Opened a year ago by x3mboy. Modified a month ago


In the Marketing team, we want to launch a series of infographics, as we stated in design#614. The first one is great, and we want to continue with the idea.


Explained above


This is the idea:

Fedora IoT

Fedora Internet of Things is a Fedora Edition focused on being a strong foundation for IoT ecosystems. Whether you're working on a project at home, industrial gateways, smart cities or analytics with AI/ML, Fedora IoT provides a trusted open source platform to build on. Fedora IoT produces a regular rolling release to help you keep your ecosystem up-to-date.

Fedora IoT's Vision

Fedora is the default platform in the IoT space. Anyone starting an IoT project, from cute embedded hacks all the way up to a multi-million device deployment will start with Fedora.

Fedora IoT's Mission

Fedora IoT makes Fedora the default for open source innovation on IoT hardware, endpoint, edge, middleware, cloud, and backend platforms.

Supported Platforms

For the moment Fedora supports the x86_64 and aarch64 architectures. The components to support ARMv7 are being worked upon and will be added shortly.

The currently tested reference devices are as follows:

  • x86_64 and aarch64 VMs
  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
  • 96boards Dragonboard 410c
  • 96boards Rock960 Consumer Edition

Other devices should work, but aren’t being actively tested in the context of IoT. The list of supported reference devices will expand with time.

Waiting for recheck the data

So this sounds interesting but I don't understand where this is intended to be used and in what context? Where will it be marketed, what's the intended audience, where will they be used?

Also is there a mock up as to how it's expected to look? I think this might be useful once we launch the edition to get more interest but we'd likely want to soft launch it so as to not drown the people involved in IoT with a huge amount of interest.

The idea is to promote via Twitter and Facebook the different Editions. Subprojects, Spins and Labs that we have available to people. Look at the tickets mentioned in the previous comment to see whats the idea and how they are looking now.

@x3mboy is this blocking on content?

@duffy I think so, but maybe at this point we can have an update from @pbrobinson

@pbrobinson Can we have some feedback about this?

I've pinged @pbrobinson on IRC, we could have some update soon
