IoT Configuration Management
Automate your Linux system with IoT configuration management. Use qbee’s built-in automations to handle users, passwords, firewall, NTP servers, package or software updates, ssh keys and much more. In addition, our advanced file distribution allows to distribute files, certificates and run scripts. A comprehensive group policy concept ensures that fleet devices obtain common or individual configurations, even with templating options. All configuration can be accessed through a REST API to connect third party systems.
UI based configuration
Use our intuitive UI to configure users, passwords, firewall, NTP servers and much more.
Distribute or rotate ssh keys through UI or REST API. Deploy and update certificates or user passwords.
Audit & device logs
Our audit log records all changes. A device log shows configuration changes and the output from scripts or commands.
Distribute files & scripts
Distribute files and scripts. Invoke commands or scripts after file distribution to address complex configuration.
Use this watchdog to reboot the system in case of connectivity loss fixing USB modem problems.
Monitor any process and ensure that it runs. qbee lets you restart any process that died and this is reported.
Pull based configuration
The qbee agent always enforces the last configuration state. Ideal for offline IoT devices or in case of patchy connectivity.
Group based configuration
Define individual configuration settings for different groups, subgroups or specific IoT devices.
All configuration can be handled through a REST API allowing access to third party systems and CI/CD integration.
qbee offers a pull based IoT configuration management for Linux devices. This allows to configure large fleets of IoT devices securely and consistently, even if connectivity might be patchy or devices are kept offline as spare devices.
In IoT for industrial automation it is important to ensure that all devices receive their specific configuration. Therefore we create an audit entry for each change and log the confirmed configuration action of the device as well. This gives detailed insights into the configuration and state of large fleets of devices.
Many standard Linux automation tasks can be handled through an intuitive UI. This allows to configure rules for the firewall, set NTP servers, install or update software packages, manage users and password, define ssh keys or monitor and restart processes.
Customers using mobile data connections value our simple watchdog that triggers when connectivity is lost. qbee is all about taking the complexity out of IoT configuration management. However, more advanced system administrators can use file distribution and our post command option to achieve any specific configuration no matter how complex.
