Release announcement: qbee.io

We are pleased to announce the release of qbee.io!

qbee.io is an IoT device management platform that allows you to manage all your embedded linux devices within one dashboard. Supported by Innovation Norway and Simula Innovations, qbee.io’s technology is designed for industrial security. It aims to bring value to its customers through four main pillars:

  • Remote access
  • Monitoring
  • Security
  • Automation

Being a powerful platform, qbee.io offers integrated solutions to solve a number of typical problems that often are addressed atomistically or not at all. The possibility to manage all this in one tool sets qbee.io apart. This creates a unique value proposition for our customers.

qbee.io includes a state based configuration engine. This allows powerful device configuration unmatched in the embedded industry. Moreover, remote connectivity and a built-in hosted VPN solution complete the offering that can be installed on any Linux system and be operational in less than 5 minutes.

Customers use qbee.io to quickly initiate POC (proof-of-concepts) and allow devices to immediately be located on-premise at their clients during the application development phase. In many cases qbee turns out to become the remote device management platform of choice throughout the edge devices’ lifecycle. There is no vendor lock-in and qbee can be removed again easily if it does not generate the promised value. 

Key features and notable highlights of qbee.io include:

✓ enforce firewall rules, update users or rotate ssh keys

✓ secure remote web server and remote desktop (VNC) access

✓ see current device metrics like CPU, memory and bandwidth

✓ provide OTA updates –  software and package management

✓ do remote file distribution and templating

✓ execute scripts and commands remotely

✓ monitor critical processes and respawn them

✓ access devices remotely using ssh on web-based interface

✓ configure services like Node-Red through templating

✓ get logs and audit trails for any change or deviation

✓ get alerts if devices go offline

✓ get visual feedback about device state and location 

✓ integrate with Ansible

✓ provide full VPN solution out of the box

✓ provide complete REST API for all functionality

To sum up, qbee.io is vendor-agnostic in nature, runs on a pull-based architecture model and is lightweight. You may find qbee.io’s documentation here for detailed info on product features. Sign up here to start your 30-day free trial to experience the difference that we take pride in.

We hope you enjoy qbee.io! We look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to contact us here.
