If you’re in the market for an ARM server you may be interested in the MiniNode 5 Node Raspberry Pi 3 CoM Carrier Board which is available to purchase both a power supply and without priced from $259. The miniNodes Raspberry Pi 3 CoM Carrier Board can be used to provide extreme edge compute capacity in remote environments, industrial settings, or space constrained locations say its creators And accepts five Raspberry Pi Compute Modules.
“The miniNodes Raspberry Pi 3 CoM Carrier Board can accomodate up to 5 Raspberry Pi Computer on Modules (CoM) in a small, easy to use platform. The Carrier Board has an integrated gigabit switch that simply needs one ethernet uplink, that delivers connectivity to all 5 nodes and makes them available on the network. The other side of the board has a power barrel which provides power to the CoM’s.
Applications or containers can be delivered to the Pi’s, to run workloads closer to the edge of the network or in places not previously possible. Or, it can be used right on your desk as a great way to learn compute clustering, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, or general purpose development of Python, Arm, Linux, and more!”
