Automatically keeping containers up to date has become one of edge computing's critical principles. Podman enables users to automate container updates using what are called auto-updates. On a high level, you can configure Podman to check the availability of new images for auto-updates, pull down these new images if needed, and restart the containers.

Running containers is essential for implementing edge computing in remote data centers or on Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Auto-updates enable you to use Podman in edge use cases, update workloads once they are connected to the network, and help reduce maintenance costs.

This presentation elaborates on improvements to auto-updates in Podman and enhancements to Podman's systemd support.

Session chairs: Lucie Cervakova and Lenka Kulajtova
