Rockchips for rent!

$100/mo. $75/mo paid quarterly.

$50 setup fee to cover cost of consumables.

Pizarro will replace failed SSDs at most once per year, per customer. Further replacements will cost $50.

  • 2 GB RAM
  • Quad-core ARM V8, 1.4 GHz
  • 128 GB Samsung USB3 storage
  • Unmetered shared

This nifty machine sits at that sweet spot between "a big-boy-pants server" that takes up an entire 1U and eats lord only knows how many watts at idle, and the not-actually-isolated modern timeshare scam known as "Virtual Private Servers". It has none of the overhead of a virtualized kernel, and its teeny tiny, dare I say adorable form factor is such that we can cram oodles of these into space that would otherwise cost north of a hundred dollars a month just in power, space and bandwidth.

They come with a Pizarro-special Gentoo, and EXTREMELY LIMITED SUPPORT, limited to OS reinstalls.

Available for rent while supplies last. Get 'em while they're hot!

    You guys just trolling for interest, or too lazy to implement an order form this time around?

    Can you be more specific here (like a model number)? USB thumbdrives aren't meant for active use and certainly not for root filesystems. They have very primitive wear leveling, few spare blocks, and extremely inefficient pointer-chasing to access a block that's been relocated.

    But hey at least you're not using SD Cards.
