The Management Console simplifies the deployment of the Data Infrastructure on any existing system. You can also provision the entire Device & Container Infrastructure, with a little manual interaction.
When should I use it?
Whether you have a bare metal server, and edge device, or a virtual machine, you can easily provision the whole United Manufacturing Hub. Choose to deploy only the Data Infrastructure on an existing OS, or provision the entire Device & Container Infrastructure, OS included.
What can I do with it?
You can leverage our custom iPXE bootstrapping process to install the flatcar operating system, along with the Device & Container Infrastructure and the Data Infrastructure.
If you already have an operating system installed, you can use the Management Console to provision the Data Infrastructure on top of it. You can also choose to use an existing UMH installation and only connect it to the Management Console.
How can I use it?
If you need to install the operating system from scratch, you can follow the Flatcar Installation guide, which will help you to deploy the default version of the United Manufacturing Hub.
Contact our Sales Team to get help on customizing the installation process in order to fit your enterprise needs.
If you already have an operating system installed, you can follow the Getting Started guide to provision the Data Infrastructure and setup the Management Companion agent on your system.
What are the limitations?
