Update – May 2014

The super-awesome APU servers are now available

APU 1 board with SD card

Build a compact, powerful server with amazing flexibility

We’re more than a little excited to finally have our hands on the new APU boards from PC Engines.

With a ton of features packed into the tiniest of spaces, and sporting a dual-core 1GHz processor and 4GB of RAM, the APU really is the most impressive embedded fanless server ever.

The APU combines all the best features of the ALIX boards, and then turns it up 500%.

And you get to choose between our sturdy, yet stylish bookshelf case, or our dual-board 1RU rackmount case.

We think you’ll find that the possibilities truly are unlimited with this baby.

New products8GB SanDisk SD card

Apart from the new “awesome possibilities unlimited” APU servers that have arrived this month, we’ve also added a new 8GB SanDisk SD card, perfect for use with the new APU.

Product changes

We’ve changed over our mSATA drives on all of our net6501 servers from a 4GB SLC drive to a 30GB MLC drive, which now only cost $95 instead of $130.

New version of Voyage Linux

Voyage Linux has released version 0.9.2, and we’re now offering this latest version on all of our Voyage products.

This release upgrades the kernel to 3.10.11 and is based on Debian Wheezy 7.3.

Of particular note in this release is that legacy PATA (IDE) drivers have been replaced by libata ones, so disk devices are now shown as /dev/sdX instead of /dev/hdX.

Add your own custom image for only $15

We’ve added a “custom image” option to all of our CF and SD cards.

So if you want to provide us with your ready-to-go image, we can install it for you when you buy a CF card or an SD card.

There’s a set-up fee of $20 for a new image, and a $15 fee (per card) each time you get us to install it for you.

Please contact us if you’d like us to install your custom image for you on any of our servers.
