Over the Air
ClearBlade’s Edge Compute Platform can be upgraded via a secure and robust mechanism for over-the-air upgrades. The upgrade process initiates from a ClearBlade Platform. The upgrade is carried out without requiring physical or any shell access. When the process initiates, all required files are transferred over AutoSync connection between Platform and Edges.
System.d service manager is supported. You can find the over-the-air tutorials here.
“Future-proof” security of your solution is post-deployment. Security improvements and patches can be pushed out to Edges deployed to the field.
Features in future releases of ClearBlade Edge Compute can be made available to Edges post-deployment.
- ClearBlade Edge with a connection to the ClearBlade Platform
- OS support: Linux and MacOS
- Init System:
systemd, or as a stand-alone process
Systemdconfig restart option set to always
Auto upgrade allows for automatic version upgrading for Edges on all systems to the latest versions. This allows for the Edge to have the latest features and capabilities when connected to the platform. The option is enabled by default but can be disabled on the Admin panel. New binary locations are displayed when auto upgrade is executed. Sources can be downloaded from Platform or GitHub files.
Upgrade status will show up on the Edges page. Failed upgrade errors can also be viewed here.
There is also a flyout of Current Processes on the Edges page. The timeline and status show up here for each Edge upgrade attempt.
