Software components NVIDIA Jetson developers
can update with Mender:
Operating system updates with full A/B symmetric image partitioning
Low level bootloader, kernel, and root filesystem that enables the underlying operating system software capabilities.
- Robust - Rolls back to the previous version in case of a failed update
- Atomic - Installed completely or not at all (no half installations)
For a “brick-free” and redundant update process, A/B operating system update is the most robust and safe update mechanism.
Docker containers, package, files and directories higher in the software stack that deals with user experience and device functionality.
- Allows for fast, frequent, and targeted updates (much smaller file sizes)
- Greater flexibility in update type (file, package, container)
- Much less data transfer per update than operating system update
For frequent updates with constrained use cases such as network data transfer costs, application update is the most efficient updating mechanism.
