I think atomic is an excellent use case for that style of updates
with decent testing would even provide decent rolling style of update
between releases with the ability to do rollbacks too with one boot
type of functionality (update, set watchdog, reboot, test connectivity
and core functionality, unset one-boot flag for rollback or if tests
The first two items are covered to some degree by atomic, the later
would need some form of push management platform. I've not looked
closely at feedhenry bits as I don't believe they've been opensourced
yet, or I missed the announcement but there could be building blocks
Definitely fits way way better for the use case than our traditional model.
Although given that each IoT thingamajig is likely going to want a level of
customization, that means either concentrating more on the container build
aspect for the customized bits, or if they need heavier customization,
concentrating more on the atomic-producing tools rather than the One True
Atomic IoT tree.
