opsi4.3-Depot-Server on ARM 64

Workshop with Thomas Fritzsche (uib gmbh)

opsi is also available in the ARM64 architecture and can also run in Docker. This combination opens up a whole new area of application for opsi. Many smaller setups (up to 20 clients) require a small solution. Most opsi server setups are simply too large for such environments. The so-called SBC (SingleBoardComputer) offers a cost-effective alternative here, both in terms of purchase and operation (electricity costs). There is also usually no need for a special server room, as these boards do not normally require cooling.

In this workshop, participants will learn more about the SBC hardware and how to choose the right one. The workshop also covers the use of the Armbuilds and how to install and deploy an OS with opsi on an SBC. The focus will be on how to connect this setup as a depot server to a central service (smaller locations), but it is also possible to operate this setup as a stand-alone config server.

Note: Limited number of participants.
