We are thinking of designing a device that we can ship out to customers and the all the customers essentially have to do is plug it in and walk away, we already have the infrastructure in place for the devices to call back with our existing solution, however we would like to be able to take advantage of the automatic disk encryption that takes place on Ubuntu core. Our current solution for deploying to our customers is to essentially dd an image a custom image onto the appliances disk but it is my understanding this wont work for deploy ubuntu core devices (feel free to correct me). Given all the development that is happening with ubuntu core is anyone able to describe how you would deploy Ubuntu Core at scale, seeing its an IoT solution, how would we be able to achieve an automated building process without months of R&D. We are looking for a way to build several hundred devices and remove as much potential human error as possible.
PS we have looked into the development packages offered and our couple of hundred devices do not qualify for the program.
Any discussion on the topic welcome.
