Solar One Monolithic Solar Supercomputer has been online since January 4th, 2021

on 22 Mar 2021  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 0

Today it is covered in pollen.   Last night and the night before it weathered winter storms and power outages.

Our Solar One Monolithic Solar Supercomputer has been online with no grid electric or internet ties since January 4th, 2021.   It is powered by high effeciency solar panels which run the computers and charge the batteries during the day.  Then at night it runs of a large DC Battery.   It will run for 10 days or more on the battery with no solar input.

We sell 2 lines of these Monolithic Solar Supercomputers:
The "Chico" Class with 2 to 8 computers.

The "Gordo" Class with 8 to 48 Computers.

Each comes with its own  Gigabit Switch which has uplink ports if wire or fiber is preferred by the client. Each Monolithic Solar Supercomputer client also gets to select the granite, or marble Monoliths,  The computers and solar panels to attached to the Monolith which then goes into the ground for 2 feet, making the whole thing about 6 feet tall above ground.

By our calculations the Chico and Gordo Class Solar Monolithic computers make every data center on the planet obsolete.   Imagine a "data center" with no building costs, no electric bill, no air condioning bill and to heavy diesel power backup systems.

Which is better for making "Data Containers?" Gluster, OpenEBS or CEPH?

Which is better for making "Data Containers?" Gluster, OpenEBS or CEPH?

In this article we will compare the three sets of software for:

First Up is Open EBS:

OpenEBS is the most widely deployed and easy to use open-source storage solution for Kubernetes.

OpenEBS is the leading open-source example of a category of cloud native storage solutions sometimes called Container Attached Storage. OpenEBS is listed as an open-source example in the CNCF
Storage Landscape White Paper under the hyperconverged storage solutions.

Here is the link to that Whitepaper: https://github.com/cncf/sig-storage/blob/master/CNCF Storage Landscape - White Paper.pdf

OpenEBS Mayastor is the most recent version.
OS: Linux, Unix, any ix

Containers Supported:  kubernetes, rust, storage, k8s, nvme, pvc

Documents and White Pages https://github.com/openebs/openebs-docs

CEPF
Ceph uniquely delivers object, block, and file storage in one unified system.

CEPH OBJECT STORE
RESTful Interface
S3- and Swift-compliant APIs
S3-style subdomains
Unified S3/Swift namespace
User management
Usage tracking
Striped objects
Cloud solution integration
Multi-site deployment
Multi-site replication
CEPH BLOCK DEVICE
Thin-provisioned

Images up to 16 exabytes, Configurable striping, In-memory caching, Snapshots, Copy-on-write cloningKernel driver supportKVM/libvirt supportBack-end for cloud solutions

Incremental backup, Disaster recovery (multisite asynchronous replication)

CEPH FILE SYSTEM, POSIX-compliant semantics

Separates metadata from data, Dynamic rebalancing, Subdirectory snapshots, Configurable striping, Kernel driver support

FUSE support, NFS/CIFS deployable  Here is more from CEPH: https://docs.ceph.com/en/latest/  We will also take a look at Operating Systems and Chipset Compatibility. 

Operating Systems to be tested include but are not limited to:  Windows, Linux, Apple, Droid 
Chipsets on Processors: Intel, ARM, AMD and others.

GlusterFS or Gluster classic

GlusterFS is a scalable network filesystem suitable for data-intensive tasks such as cloud storage and media streaming. GlusterFS is free and open source software and can utilize common off-the-shelf hardware

Check back here soon for the full report.  Almost done.  Check back in a few days when we look at heat and energy consumerd

Research by yours truly,

2 New Drones arrived today for our next Drone Flight Training Class. One is a new drone to replace for one lost earlier this week in our Basic Drone Flight Training.

That is the benefit of learning flight and flight maneuvers on in-expensive - disposable drones.

The student then gets a choice on which of the practice drone models they want to take home.

Part of our drone training includes an overview of how to pass the FAA Drone, Recreational or Private Pilot's License as well as a list of schools and resources in their home town - or near.

Computer Dudes Salute - Devuan a more powerful Linux Distro that can be secured and that does not have to use Clouds.

https://www.linkedin.com/showcase/devuan/

This is from our friends in Europe - Computer Dudes has worked extensively with this groups softwares and operating systems.

Great job to everyone working on or who assisted this group in the past. :)Todd

Military version of Anti-Drone / Drone Defense Courses

https://lnkd.in/gWMnjUTM

As for Computer Dudes' "Civilian" Drone Defense Course we have techniques weapons not know to the military. As the video in the link shows the military has weapons and methods civilians and companies can not use at this time.

Like the military Computer Dudes' Drone Defense course uses a "layered" defense. :)T

Fascinating.
Some of the small WiFi Bridge equipment, with directional antennas, can be used to "jam" or "block" a WiFi router, transmitter, or small area of WiFi service.
It is not a new concept or function - its just the last time we experimented with WiFi jamming the Yagi antenna, transmission, and monitoring equipment weighed several hundred pounds.
Current to 2024 WiFi "Bridge" equipment works off a phone and the antenna's are the size of a tea cup. Cool Stuff! :)T

Today we are working on Industrial Robot Control interfaces and methodology with the Meta Quest 3

This morning we used the headset to configure workstations and virtual workstations in a 3D digital copy of the International Space Station, the ISS. :)T

Only the Computer Dudes dares to bring FPV Simulators and Trainers - to the real world!!

Freestyle - pilot vs pilot and drone vs drone on indoor and outdoor courses.

Our "Dogfight" drone game is the most fun in my experience.

We use the manual controllers but are modding things for VR and Mixed Reality Headset Use.

Dont have a drone yet? Use some of the FPV or other training simulations and instructions on youtube. Have fun! :)T

Why Muon Beams are important - from Fermilab discussion:

Radio Waves and Light(laser) have been mastered as "carrier waves" for audio, video, and data.

What might be the "next" carrier wave? One not blocked by Matter or Time?? ;)T
