It is invaluable to be able to connect and access your devices remotely via one account. A further step is being able to also update these devices remotely. It gives sysadmins fewer headaches and minimized efforts.
UpdateHub allows for remote complete updates of devices, including the update of the device’s bootloaders and firmware. It is particularly helpful in reducing risk and rework when managing thousands of small deployments in multiple devices.
It handles over-the-air updates, validates the authenticity and integrity of certain packages, and leaves you free to fix other issues and complete other tasks.
There are two options of servers in UpdateHub: the UpdateHub CE, which is also known as the community edition of UpdateHub, and the UpdateHub cloud.
Here are steps to follow in the installation of UpdateHub:
Ensure you have all the required hardware
Make your environment prepared before you start
Start up the UpdateHub CE or UpdateHub Cloud
Ensure that your environment is configured for the generation of the image
