The Solar One Monolithic Super Computer now comes with 3 Monolith options for clients.

on 10 May 2021  Posted by Administrator  Category: Technology  Comments: 0

The main Monolith is made of polished marble, around 6 feet tall, and about as wide as a man.  

On the Original - A second piece of Granite of the same size and width but of shorter length is attached to the Monolith in the ground.  Two pieces of thin steel separate the two pieces of stone.  Solar Panels go on one side, computer parts and video screen, mouse and KB, all weatherproof go on the other side of the monolith.  

The main Computer Core is either attached to the granite or is in a glass shell on top - because the computers and core are strangely beautiful.

We are now introducing the "T-Head" and "X-wing" Monoliths.   

These use the standard 6 foot Monolith - that goes in the ground, but use only granite for their form to connect the 2nd piece of granite.
They also allow for upgrades using larger Motherboards in our Gordo and Chico Clusters.

There is video there of the Solar One Monolith which has been online since Jan 4, 2021 with no grid power or wired connections.
The main website for Newline Microservers is not up yet.   We have sold enough units to keep us busy for 3+ months.

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,

Computer Dudes roll out License Plate Recognition, LPR, 8MP+ All weather day and night camera systems.

We are starting in the Smaller cities and Rural Areas where they have not even seen this technology.

Big cities and big companies as well as law enforcement and military already have such cameras.

Pricing to the public is INSANE so we found affordable - dependable versions of that type camera.

Well ISN'T that a Kick in the Pants.

Several of the fake profiles and criminal type hackers were identified and logged the last few days.

This morning - the company that employed them - SENT ME A HIRE REQUEST!!

Freaking Hilarious. They did their research yesterday - found out I really am heading to Washington DC and my contacts there.

BTW the hire request - got Ghosted.

Never contact or work for a dishonest company engaged in attacks on people for financial gain, fraud, or computer hacking.

Even if I did reply - the answer would have been NO.

This is one of the funniest things we have seen since before Computer Dudes became a company way back around 1997.

Still laughing. :)T

Big Changes Coming Soon - this will become an employee owned company.

My gift to you, the loyal, the kind, the strong, the brave - The Computer Dudes.

As you know our company has no debt and has never issued stock.

Just our holding will make the new owners wealthy - without issuing stock.

95% of the people reading this have no idea what that means for the employees and how it will increase their networth at the sign-over.

I will be around but I will also be traveling and taking some personal time to spend with friends and family.

If you work for Computer Dudes, and were loyal and kind, you are already wealthy.
