How to update a Docker container with Mender using Raspberry Pi
A Docker container packages applications in containers by virtualizing the operating system and dividing it into compartments to run applications. Powerful CPU-based devices can leverage virtualization to enable containers. Containers are easy to manage due to their atomic nature, enable more efficient use of system resources, faster delivery cycle and provide a nice layer of isolation. Microsoft...Read the article
Managing large scale deployments with phased rollout and schedule deployments
As the number of connected devices increase, the operations and infrastructure needed to support continuous updates at scale is growing fast. Deploying to a large fleet of connected devices in the field with thousands or tens of thousands, can pose a significant risk of something going wrong.
Regardless of how well tested the software and update process is, you will only know how well the deploy...Read the article
How to do delta (differential) updates with Mender
Using binary deltas for applying updates is a more efficient mechanism for updating software over-the-air (OTA) which enables faster downloads and bandwidth cost saving for metered networks. When using cellular (e.g. 4G/LTE) or other bandwidth constrained networks, the impact is even greater. With the recently announced commercial editions, Mender offers the ability to generate and only deploy t...Read the article
Enabling faster downloads and lower bandwidth costs over cellular networks with Mender robust delta updates
Delta update is a more efficient mechanism for updating software over-the-air (OTA) when using cellular networks (e.g. 4G/LTE) which enables faster downloads and bandwidth cost savings. Mender offers the ability to generate and only deploy the difference (delta) between the software version already on the devices and the new version, on the binary level. Depending on the cellular technology and ne...Read the article
