fit-PC2 end-of-life announced

CompuLab have announced that the fit-PC2 and fit-PC2i will be end-of-life from October 2014.

Stock availability won’t be affected for now, but it’s a good time to stock up, pre-order parts or consider one of our other low-power desktop PCs.


How to backup a fit-PC2 using only a USB stick (and some creative partitioning)

This tutorial shows you how to back up your fit-PC2 workstation (or any USB-bootable computer) so you can quickly and easily restore your computer to its original state in the event of a hard drive failure, or infection by a trojan or virus.

It involves creating a new Linux partition on your existing hard drive, and works for both Windows and Linux workstations. All you need is a USB thumb drive and some free software.


Backing up workstations quickly and easily

Here at Yawarra, we have a pretty normal set up – workstations on each person’s desk and file servers with our important business data.

But a workstation still requires many hours and resources to build, and each workstation quickly morphs into a unique set of programs, configurations and preferences.

So we devised a quick and easy to way to backup each workstation using only a USB thumb drive and some creative partitioning.


Capturing production line data and displaying daily targets

Steel-Line needed to capture the serial number, completion date and time, and production line number for each roller door they manufactured. They also wanted to display daily production targets.

By using fit-PC2s, they achieved all of their project goals in a more flexible way and at a more reasonable cost than other solutions.
