This is Experimental feature for install from a bootable flash drive, currently SONM OS is on very early stage of development.
SONM OS based on Ubuntu 18.04 Server edition and include all SONM components and environment for supplier. At current stage of development we consider it as an alternative way for installation of SONM platform.
Before installing, check your hardware for compatibility with Ubuntu. Using incompatible hardware may cause problems during installation.
Every Supplier should have Ethereum address, that is his unique identifier. This address is called 'Master address', and it's purpose:
- receive payments with SNM tokens for resources rented in SONM (marketplace smart contract send all payments to this address from all his SONM Workers);
- link profile certificates, deal statistics, contact information, etc;
- statistics and management for supplier's workers .
