    Do you have any picture, about how they're racked? What about heat dissipation? :/

    I have 7 finger choppers (Delta Fans) blowing across all of the RPIs. They are sitting on rubber mats.
    Just for you!

  • Should the "8GB Ram/16GB Drive" on the web site actually say "8GB Ram/256GB Drive" instead?

    Also, I am always wondering what the recovery options are for these things. What happens if the device doesn't boot any more (after a kernel upgrade or whatever)? Access to serial console/boot from network?

    Ah yes, Good catch. I will fix that.
    At that point. Will need to put a ticket in. We will perform a hard reset on the POE to power cycle the device. If it still doesn't come up then will need to swap out the SD card.

    The Raspberry Pi uses SD cards. Its either a 16GB or a 256GB version.

    It appears the 256GB package is popular. I can get a couple more of them spun up.
    There is 16GB versions still available.

  • How about the IO performance of the 16g version?I'm using ikoula's raspberry Pie 4 with 16 GB SD card, its IO performance is very poor. :(

    My favorite providers : hostsolutions

  • Alien vps? Looks great, digression: do you have anything to do with Area 51? ? ? :)

    That can really depend on the SD cards they are using. We are using Class 10 / Up to 80MBps speeds SanDisk Ultra MicroSDHC UHS-I

    Yes, although designing a PCB for it and everything is something that I don't know how to do let alone after designing the PCB how would the costs look?!

    Hello there,

    We did exactly that :) A PCB room for up to 14 RPIs which had support for remote reboot and console access to all RPIs. Reboot and Console was controlled by one of the PIs on the board.

    And one could dasiy chain PCBs together via USB to use that one controller RPI on multiple boards.

    Unfortunately they changed around the USB and Ethernet ports on the new RPI4, and we have not had the time to redesign it unfortunately. But we do have a few working prototype boards here.

    As you can see, it also supports other boards with the same GPIO pins e.g. the NanoPI Fire.

    Love your project! If we ever get around to fixing our boards for RPI4 and future models, we'll definitely get in touch.
