    Microserver Configured

    I recently hauled a brand-spanking-new HP Microserver Gen8 back from the UK, and I’ve been configuring it to render my Drobo FS NAS and Pi Webserver obsolete. The server runs FreeNAS 9.10 to provide network-attached storage to my home network. FreeNAS also allows users to run virtual machines via the VirtualBox hypervisor.

Recently the Raspberry Pi Foundation released their newest model, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, and I decided to grab one as a replacement. The main differences are: A 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU 802.11n Wireless LAN Bluetooth 4.1 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Of all the new features, I’m solely interested in the increased clock speed of the CPU. 300Mhz is a big jump – 25% faster than the Pi 2. Hopefully it will make the server more snappy when serving files, processing scripts, and performing daily backups. The server is hard-wired into…

  • Raspberry Pi 2 Webserver
