Azure IoT Edge has today released several enhancements to improve remote device management and edge device workload update tasks.
Layered deployments give you the ability to independently deploy different combinations of modules to otherwise similar hardware, without requiring the creation of an automatic Deployment for every unique hardware configuration.
Improved UI for automatic deployments allows for browsing and selection of Microsoft Azure Marketplace modules from within the create deployment experience. There are also new controls for setting routes and module twin properties.
Automatic device management has gained automatic configuration for module twins helps to automate some repetitive tasks, similar to what is already available for for managing automatic device configurations.
