UNMS remote mgmt, no CloudKey product, DIY solution?

I manage half a dozen unifi networks through a cloud key on each network and all Unifi hardware. However, I also manage one location with EdgeRouter and EdgeSwitch and all th switches and access points behind those two are Unifi, so I manage them with a CloudKey. It’s easy as pie. But throw in UNMS and all of a sudden it’s complicated. In order to manage my two edge devices I’d need a dedicated PC running Linux. All the Raspberry Pi-like computers I can find run ARM processors and that’s tricky with UNMS - from experience and from research. So what’s up with UNMS? There’s no CloudKey equivalent ready to be used. Or is there and I just don’t know about it? When I’m onsite, I run Ubuntui in a virtual machine on my laptop, then I use my iPad to connect to the UNMS server. This isn’t the ease of use I’ve come to expect from Ubiquiti, given that my first forays with Ubiquit have been all Unifi and made network management extremely easy. Thanks.

@racecannon Hello. There is a big thread and also an install guide made by UNMS enthusiasts about installing UNMS on Raspberry. You can check it out. As for the dedicated Cloudkey like device for UNMS, I have to say that we are considering it, but it won't be available in the near future for sure. We are also working on a cloud UNMS installation which may be more user-friendly for you. Currently, it is necessary to have a third party cloud service or your own UNMS server or a Virtual machine on a personal computer in order to run UNMS.

@skytom I'm not able to see that post. Is it protected in some way?
