How to transfer data files to remote embedded Linux devices?
We all have encountered the need to transfer files or update DBs on remote IoT devices. As an example, on a digital billboard, you might have to update the ad to be played on the screen or as simple as updating the certificate files on these remotely deployed devices.
The obvious way is to perform a secured copy (scp) to the device in the local network, but that won’t work here. An alternate way is to perform an Over the Air Upgrade (OTA) to the embedded Linux devices. The advantage of this over scp is, can perform OTA for many devices at once.
This video will show you how to perform OTA to remote Linux devices at scale. Just sign-up here for free and start onboarding the devices. Find the pre-requisites and related links below the video.
