Chapter 20. Edge

This chapter lists the most notable changes to RHEL Edge between RHEL 8 and RHEL 9.

20.1. RHEL for Edge

Supported RHEL for Edge image types

With RHEL for Edge, you can compose customized RHEL (rpm-ostree) images using Image Builder, and then remotely install and manage the images on Edge servers.

The following image types are supported in RHEL 9 Beta:

  • RHEL for Edge Commit (.tar)
  • RHEL for Edge Container (.tar)
  • RHEL for Edge Installer (.iso)

Supported RHEL for Edge image names

Previously, the image types were prefixed by rhel-. This prefix was removed, but the previous image names, such as rhel-edge-container and rhel-edge-installer still work as aliases to the new names. These names are considered deprecated and may be removed completely in future versions. The following RHEL for Edge image names are supported in RHEL 9 Beta:

  • edge-commit
  • edge-container
  • edge-installer
