I am currently working on integrating a resin-powered device into an existing commercial hardware and have made some first steps on both Raspberry Pi 3 and the Intel Edison.
In my eyes the Raspberry Pi 3 worked more smooth in booting and serving the deployed app which was a basic Flask-powered Application with asynchronic network library and web-socket via Socket-IO.
Deploying the same application onto the Intel Edison worked without a problem but much slower and with much more delay. Also the web-terminal is a whole lot more slower when using it for the Intel Edison.
For my project however I would prefer using the Intel Edison over a Raspberry since this will be released as a commercial product and using the Raspberry Pi here as the resin platform feels a bit strange.
Also I do not need USB-Ports and physical Ethernet, just Wi-Fi and two UARTs which are used to communicate with the existing hardware.
Is the Intel Edison a good choice for a production-ready platform? Are there any better options, like the Samsung Artik 5?
I have been thinking of using the upcoming Raspberry Pi 3 Compute Module but since there aren’t any facts available yet I strongly think that this won’t feature a wireless connectivity option.
So I really prefer using modules that come with on-board Wi-Fi so that this will minimize the effort which will be needed to build a interface board for that module.
Any help and feedback here is greatly appreciated!
PS.: I am still flashed by how awesome resin.io works! I really fell in love right after the first time I ran my just prepared Raspberry Pi and right after it had appeared in the resin.io cloud overview! So well done, folks! Keep that good work up!
