Firmware over-the-air: package-based vs image-based updates
Here at Mender.io, we did a comprehensive survey with embedded developers and what they did with devices that required software updates over-the-air (OTA). Our findings included two very distinct approaches to handling updates, which we will go over in more detail in this blog post.
The results of our survey included the following:Read the article
The case for over-the-air software updates and patching the Internet of Things
Embedded systems have existed since the Apollo space program - the Apollo Guidance Computer in the Lunar Module is regarded as the first embedded computer, enabling the historic mission to land mankind on the Moon. Decades later, we are now in the age where embedded devices are being connected. The first wave was connected mobile phones, which have fundamentally changed the way we interact. As t...Read the article
