What is balena?

Balena is a complete set of tools for building, deploying, and managing fleets of connected Linux devices. We provide infrastructure for fleet owners so they can focus on developing their applications and growing their fleets with as little friction as possible.

Our tools are designed to work well together as a platform, but you can also pick and choose the components you need for your project, and adapt them to your particular use case. We know that no two IoT projects are the same and there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

If you’re eager to learn more about the inner workings of balena, you’re in luck! We’re eager to share. This guide covers the components and workflows involved in a typical balena deployment.
