Hello fellow BLUGers,
For the upcoming celebration of 16 years BLUG I suggest to bring
along two SoC ARM boards and storage which in a collaborative
effort we could configure to become a comprehensive file &
At the end of the other presentations I could briefly introduce
the hardware, its supported Linux distributions and the targeted
use-case / solution. Those interested in the topic then can join
Would such an SoC ARM board session be of interest for the 16th
Birthday Party (Mid-December. Which date exactly?)?
Do you find the suggested file & backup use-case interesting
and relevant for both BLUG veterans and newbies?
Any other use-cases you want us to consider?
What other program points are planned to which such a SoC ARM
board session could connect with?
- 2x FriendlyARM NanoPC-T4,
CPU RK3399, 4 GB Ram, 16 GB eMMC
- 2x 7inch eDP LCD Display with Cap-Touch
These 2 SoC's and LCD's are kindly provided by the
Guangzhou-based producer FriendlyARM. We can also use them during
future BLUG meetups.
Additionally I'll bring along an M.2 eNVM SSD, an USB3 disk, an
USB keyboard, an ethernet switch and three cables.
Configuration - File & Backup use-case
Server 1 - File + Media:
- OpenMediaVault NAS on btrfs
for web & mobile access
for folder syncing
- Storage: 256 GB M.2 eNVM SSD
- Optional: Containerise (LXD and/or Docker)
Server 2 - Backup + DR:
- BackupPC for Backup
for DR (disaster recovery)
- Storage: 2 TB USB3 disk (M.2 eNVM SSD too expensive, a
conventional SSD doesn't fit because of the NanoPC-T4's missing
SATA port. Last but not least is top-speed less relevant for
backup and having its disk removable can itself be an advantage as
well, especially if it was in a multi-tier nearline-storage
- As operating system does FriendlyARM provide the Linux distribution FriendlyCore 18.04 64-bit + Qt5 (probably based on Ubuntu Core 18.04 LTS without GUI)
- To be installed on the SoC board's internal 16 GB eMMC
What do you think?
