The limit has indeed been raised to 20. We’re interested to learn about scenarios that require more than 20 modules.Leon commented
Our current solution :
- 4 "unrelated" types of sensors in a mining environment.
- Within a sensor type we can decrease each instance to a single process (Docker)
- Share some common infrastructure (eg DB and Monitoring)
- As it stands we are already running 30 sensors processors (Mixed) on a single server
In an ideal scenario We would like to be able to place the physical sensor (eg IP camera based) on the site and deploy and configure the new sensor processor using the Azure IOT edge solution.
I understand that there are ways of getting around this by running an image per sensor type capable of handling multiple sensor inputs, but that seems to take away from a lot of the features that makes the azure attractive
