The Sentinel - Monolithic, Off-Grid, Clustertype Solar Powered Supercomputer for use Outdoors for 100+ years.

on 22 Nov 2021  Posted by Administrator  Category: Technology  Comments: 1

Our flagship product for 2022 is the new "Sentinel" monolith containing our Gordo8 scalable core system  #solaronemonolith.   

Four Sentinels, with their basic configuration = a 32 computer Data Center.   A data center with no power bill.   A data center with no building.  A data center controlled or accessed by any Internet Device.
Most importantly a Data Center with no emissions built to last 100 years (with replacement parts)

The Sentinel's functions are included but not limited to:

  • Web, Streaming Media, Database, Servers
  • Offsite Backup Servers
  • Scalable Servers
  • Sensor Platforms
  • Farm or Well Controls
  • Observatories
  • History and Science Archives 
  • Sun Dials
  • Relay Stations
  • Emergency Aid Stations
  • SatCom Stations
  • Video Phones
  • Atmospheric and Weather Equipment and Servers

These are not plans or dreams, but products we are producing.    Find the article on the Gordo-8 to get further information, configuration and pricing.

The 3 Keys to Safe Social Media - Including: Meta (Facebook), LinkedIn, Twitter, Google and all the rest. :)

The problem with Facebook and other Social Media is not the Algorithm, the extremists, or the hackers - it is the Lack of a "KEYs. "

Three KEYs are needed: better Architecture, better Filters, and a new type of KEY, we will call a "Facts Table." (more on that below)

First Key is better Architecture.

Second Key is better Filters

Third Key is to create a "Facts Table" 

A facts table, to let those undecided see both sides; minus the falsehoods or political spin. To appeal to both sides and let everyone cool off with a little reality.  This "Third Key," a "Facts Table," briefly expresses both sides of an argument, or topic, or keyword: but is filtered for spin and misrepresentations.

The 3 Keys to safe, secure, social media in 2021.

Gordo-8: A Systems and Pricing Review

on 19 Aug 2021  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 2
20210813_181855.jpg

The Computer Dudes, Inc's research on Single Board Computers, SBC's, began in the 1990s.   SBC's use very little electricity.  In the 1990s SBC's were only used for traffic signs and such.  The first SBC Computer Dudes used was a 80846.

For the last 3 years we have developed and are in production with the Gordo-8 and Gordo-12 Series.   The number beside the name indicates how many computers are in the cluster.  
The Gordo Series uses a round core which allows for many motherboards to be run in a cluster or as separate servers. 

Gordo-8 Base Configuration

Node Zero: Control Node
Node One: Apache Server
Node Two:  Samba 4 Server with 1 Tb SSD, USB 3.1
Node Three:  Samba Node (controlled by Samba4 Server)
Node Four: Raspberrian Server or Workstation
Node Five: Backup Server for Files, Data and Video
Node Six:  CUPS / Print Server
Node Seven:  Routing and Security Server

Base Pricing


Gordo-8 Monolithic Solar:  $9,750

Gordo-8 Standard plug in / indoor version:  $5,750

Some of you were looking for Raspberry Pi's and others were working on Robots

Check this source out. Parallax also makes a complete line of small robots, sensors, cameras and all sorts of education projects too.

They are very cooperative with Teachers and Classrooms at all levels and have lessons along with source material and projects online and in live scheduled events.

I have used Parallax for decades. Bookmark it for sensors and lessons. :)

Your pal,
Todd

This weekend our #solaronemonolith out door Data Center is running Space Navigation including Interstellar Navigation.

If you need a refresher on Space and Navigation in Space Here is a good place to start. https://www.mpia.de/en

The last design for 2022 integrated an oscilloscope in the power supply system of the #solaronemonolith class of outdoor supercomputers.

Good Job Engineering Group! :)

We have solutions for NASA - Solar Panel Cleaning devices that were developed on The Computer Dudes, Inc's SolarOneMonolith project.

Our project is outdoor data centers on Earth.

We offer our designs to NASA and Other Space Agencies as part of the project Data as well as for future use.

NASA's Mars Mission InSight - which lasted longer than expected, was ultimately killed by the Solar Panels being covered by Martian Dust.

Our solutions for the Solaronemonolith series outdoor computers solar panels are - Fans, Wiper Blade, Raking Device - Shovel Device, Ultrasonics, Low Frequency Sound, Ionic Charge, Ionic Fan, Drones, and Heaters.

All "cleaning systems" would be on a different power system than the computer or spacecraft power system.

We offer no criticism of NASA - their mission was very successful and lasted longer than was originally planned. :)T

All #solaronemonolith - Off Grid, Outdoor, Cluster Type Supercomputers now come with a "manual" power generation option.

Yes - if the grid is down, the solar panels are broken, the batteries are dead - a person may manually rotate a 20W generator - to boot the computers, run a laptop or recharge a cell phone.

Zero Emissions, Zero waste. DC and AC Power.

I believe it is another "First of its Kind"

Go, Computer Dudes and American Engineering! :)T

Today we were studying long-term Solar and Weather Damage to our outdoor supercomputers of the #solaronemonolith class.

No system failures. No Core failures.

Much heavier damage to semi-clear plastic covers of the battery compartment were discovered.
AEFlorida (our engineering group) already designed a replacement made with glass, steel, stone. or carbon fiber. :)T

Our Solar Engineering Team has come up with 2 configurations of "Solar Tower" for power generation.
Low Cost mounting and setup. High weather and wind resistance. Go Dudes! :)T

Our #solaronemonolith and the worlds first Monolithic Off-Grid Solar Data Center have become a minor attraction here just South of Tallahassee, Florida.
The Granite Monoliths are quite beautiful in the Sun or at Night. People drive by slowly or stop on the street out front to take a look several times a day.
We put signs on the fence next to the road explaining the project and listing some of the technical specs.
Good Job Computer Dudes! :)T

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
