    Re: Preconfiguring machines to scan before they go to customers? Thoughts?

    Depending on the customer, we've either gone the Pi route, or gone with a full on server. One of my teammtes is even toying around to see if we can get it working as a container instead of a full on virtual machine. The key is to just make sure that the relay is on a system that's always going to be powered on.
    What exactly do you mean by a "container"???...a full on self-contained machine as opposed to a VM??? If you do any 3D printing there's quite a few R-Pi custom enclosures over at Thingiverse to choose from!!!

    The very basic description is that it's a virtual machine that only installs the portions of an operating system necessary for a specific application.

    Being an IT-first shop, we're looking at just about anything that can give us a leg up. Pretty much, if it can have a network cable plugged into it, we'll try to manage it.

    We constantly get calls scanning is not working which we immediately get blamed for. I wish the company I work for was clever when it comes to IT but they ain't ><.

    It's a very gray area for my company because we don't wanna p people and lose the customer to someone else even though its not our fault.

    Has anyone setup a cloud based server just for this purpose and which provider do they use?

    Thanks,
