Intel® IoT Gateway Technology: Image Creation Guide

Intel® IoT Gateway Technology allows you to create and deploy custom images for your IoT gateways. This guide uses the Deploy tool to help you with the second part of this two-part process:

  1. Define your customizations: The customization steps vary, depending on your goals. Complete your customizations before using this image creation guide. For help, see Intel® IoT Gateway Technology: Customizing Your Gateways at
  2. Create a custom image and deploy it to one or more IoT Gateways.
