How to set up a Simple IoT system in the cloud

This video shows how easy it is to set up a cloud server to run Simple IoT, InfluxDB, and Grafana on a $5/mo cloud server. We deploy everything using Ansible.

Ansible roles:

We’re using the grafana, influxdb2, simpleiot-bin, and caddy2 roles.

superb, are you running this with nixos ?

No, still Debian. NixOS is an interesting idea – we would not need Ansible then …

One thought with this video is it should be doable by most developers who have some Linux skills. Setting up a NixOS server on Linode is project in itself, so probably beyond the interest of most people.
