Project hawkBit aims to create a domain independent back end solution for rolling out software updates to constrained edge devices as well as more powerful controllers and gateways connected to IP based networking infrastructure. Devices can be connected to the hawkBit server either directly through an optimized interface or indirectly through federated device management servers.
hawkBit is device and communication channel neutral by means of supporting:
- Software and Operating system updates for M2M gateways (typically but not necessarily running Linux) and
- Firmware updates for embedded devices
- cable or
- over the air (OTA) connected devices
Features at a glance:
A device and software repository.
Artifact content delivery.
Software update and roll out management.
Reporting and monitoring.
for direct device control.
for IoT solutions or applications to manage the repository and the roll outs.
for device management federation (i.e. indirect device control)
and a user interface to operators to manage and run the roll outs.
