Digi Containers simplify and centralize the process of building, deploying and running custom applications on devices managed with Digi Remote Manager® (Digi RM) as the central portal.
Containers with custom programs or Python applications can be loaded via Digi RM on any device running the Digi Accelerated Linux operating system (DAL OS).
As an add-on service to Digi Remote Manager, Digi Containers are a powerful capability implemented via Lightweight Linux Containers (LXC).
LXC tools enable developers to package up a custom application, with its dependencies and configuration, into a lightweight, portable bundle that shares only the running kernel with the host device.
Using Digi RM to manage containers leverages our proven cloud-based platform that offers a single point of command to securely monitor, control and update programs running on connected Digi routers.
What’s more, developers aren’t limited to x86-based products: Digi offers dozens of DAL OS-based devices that can run Digi Containers.
Optimize and extend the capabilities of your Digi connectivity solution in several use cases.
Digi Containers offer a cloud-centric architecture that enables users to build, deploy and run container-based applications. Added to a Digi Remote Manager license, a Digi Containers license enables companies to orchestrate and manage a complex series of containers in various structures and configurations across enterprise, industrial, transportation and other use cases.
Implementing via Lightweight Linux Containers provides users of DAL OS-based Digi routers a secure environment to develop, distribute, and run custom programs or Python applications.
With DAL OS embedded in Digi devices, developers can leverage an extensive set of software features and capabilities built into firmware that is signed, vetted, and distributed as part of our Digi TrustFence®-approved standards.
To run applications not already in the distributed firmware, the most streamlined and standardized option is to create a virtual space through Lightweight Linux Containers (LXC).
Digi Containers are available as a subscription added to Digi Remote Manager Premier.
Managing the increasing complexity of IoT applications just got easier. Meet Digi Containers, a value-added service available as an add-on to a Digi Remote Manager® license. The Digi Containers service puts you in control, and helps you simplify your operations.
Leverage the power of edge computing to control your network performance using Digi RM to load and manage Python scripts on your Digi devices. Quickly and easily integrate Digi RM with third-party cloud services such as Microsoft Azure, AWS and the Google Cloud Platform. Digi RM can act as facilitator between edge devices such as cellular radios, gateways and routers and many different third-party services. It can then simplify the ability to get your data where you want it to go. Add edge intelligence. Reduce latency and enhance your network efficiency.
