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

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?

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,

Hey! This is Todd.

I am still on medical restriction from working for a month or so as I recover from my open heart surgery about 2 weeks ago.

It is slow going and painful but I am making progress every day and the medical people are sending 2 nurses by my house each week - one for case managment and one for physical therapy.

I am under orders not to lift anything weighing more than 10 lbs.

Thanks for everyones concern and all the kind note, emails and discussions on LinkedIn.

More soon. Thanks - Todd

Hi, I am Thomas Riker, I am an engineer out of New Orleans helping cover the SE United States with Computer Dudes products and services.

As many of you are aware our Founder and the inventor of the #solaronemonolith recently had chest pains and went to the Hospital. Todd is out of the Hospital now but must return for Open Heart Surgery next week or the following week.

Todd transferred command of Computer Dudes to me this morning.

He plans to return in 6 to 12 weeks. Until then the rest of the Computer Dudes and their engineers will continue operations normally.

You have my word on this. :)

Thomas Riker
Computer Dudes, New Orleans, Field Engineer and now Temporary CEO of Computer Dudes.

War or No War.
All our clients are STILL secure.
All backups done and in storage.
Good Job Dudes!

Network and Workstation Virtualization Starts Here:

https://www.vmware.com/topics/glossary/content/network-virtualization.html

Use "Baremetal" Servers with No Clouds or Command Consoles for most secure operation

Google P2V for more info. :)T

ALERT: As our confidence in Windows Operating Systems continues to decline we would like to advise all our friends and clients to P2V any critical Windows Systems that they have online or in critical systems and servers.

Virtualization allows safe operation and quick restoration of any computers that fail.

Virtualized systems can be kept safe and monitored externally in real time behind your companies routers and DMZ.

Virtualized Systems on local servers with offsite data center backup and redundant backups.

Cellular or WiFi Data can be less Expensive than a Satellite Link for remote projects and Data Centers.

We have several versions of Cellular Data available for our #solaronemonolith products and outdoor off-grid data centers.

https://sixfab.com/hardware/

Why should Data Centers have ANY power bill or even a building with this level of technology? ;)

Regards,
Todd W. Byars

ALERT: Facebook and groups supporting Facebook and Meta are Phishing all the other Social Networks currently - including LinkedIn, for new members or for people to rejoin Facebook.

It has happened to me quite a few times and several of my employees and dozens of my friends in the last 2 weeks.

Personally, I just drop and block them, like I do other spammers, or bots.

Pass the word. Let people know not to get #phished by #facebook.

Friends don't allow each other to get phished or conned. Spread the word.

Computer Dudes received their first Wind Turbine to double the power available at our Site One Solar Monolithic Data Center. #solaronemonolith

Our Outdoor Solar Data Centers require no Grid Tie or Data Line.

Design life using Granite, Steel and Glass as well as modular replaceable parts is 100 years.

Zero Power Bill. Wifi, Satellite, Fiber or Wired Data are all options.

Multiple Power Inputs including Backup Generators keep the outdoor data centers running around the clock in any weather.

I can't wait to see the 5 bladed Wind Turbine up and in action.

It provides from 200 to 600 Watts according to wind speed and the wind is always blowing in North Florida. :)T

All our #solaronemonoliths are online and did not skip a beat during last nights record low temperature here in Tallahassee, Florida. 22 degrees Fahrenheit
Thats 10 degrees below freezing. Most batteries fail at Freezing temps or below.
I love the smell of Success on a chilly morning.
Good Job to all Design and Engineering teams - we have another record. :)Todd
