Requirements

You will need a Linux* build system to build the Edge Controls for Industrial images. Also, you will need a target system where you will install an Edge Controls for Industrial image. The target system will run real-time workloads and Docker containers. You may use the same machine as a Linux build system and a target system; however, the image may take much longer to build. If using a Linux build system with minimum specifications, it will take around 12 hours to build an image. For comparison, it takes around 20 minutes to build an image on the system with recommended specifications.
In addition to the Edge Controls for Industrial package, you must have the following:
