Pi to the Power of 4 case
I did another version of my Pi Case - The Mark I. Currently waiting on parts so I can assemble them. I had 3 printed off in one go which dropped the unit price to $177 AUD. Once I have one assembled I will put up photos. One project finished this year.
One of the projects for next year is to sort out an air conditioned computer room so we can crunch 24/7. I’ll probably leave the Raspberry Pis at home but the rest of the farm can be relocated.
Another half-started project is the storage server. Its sitting in its box in the lounge. As its quite heavy it hasn’t made it upstairs yet. I have drives for it. I will probably put a mix of fast HDD’s and slower but larger capacity HDD’s. The idea is it will run ZFS which has the concept of drive pools.
A third project to look at is improved network speeds. I added a 10Gbe network card to the storage server. I probably need another one for the proxy server. I need a 10Gbe switch. The number crunchers can use a gigabit switch with 10Gbe uplinks. I haven’t done anything with this so far as it depends a lot on projects one and two.
