What IT environment has Pepper Container been developed for?
Pepper Container, which is based on Docker technology, has been specifically developed for the use of thin clients (smartphones or tablets with cash register apps) and is also ideally suited to use in a cloud-based cash register infrastructure.
In principle, different network infrastructures are possible here: The software only needs one central server, which is then linked to multiple Containers from private networks.
By the way …
- Pepper Container allows you to connect one or more POS terminals to one or more Containers.
- However, to ensure optimal functionality, we recommend that you use one Container per POS terminal: this means that if one terminal fails, all of your remaining terminals will continue to function, guaranteeing smooth operation.
Which OS is Pepper Container compatible with?
Whether you use Microsoft, Android or iOS, the underlying Docker technology makes Pepper Container independent from the cash register’s operating system, meaning that Pepper Container works across all systems.
The central server should be running a Windows or Linux (x86, ARM) operating system.
How implementation works
After installing the image, carry out the integration into your cash register software according to the developer documentation.
Once you have integrated the Pepper Container into your cash register software, you can start by checking whether you have seamless communication with the POS terminal, free of charge.
Once everything is up and running, all you have to do is order your product licenses for permanent use and sign a usage agreement with treibauf.
