"Chico" is ready for On-Site Demo's in small and medium sized Offices. Chico can replace your Rack Servers, Routers, and Security Devices.on 10 Nov 2019 Posted by Administrator Category: Security News
"Chico" is READY for demonstration in your Office! Chico is our 8 computer cluster that can replace an entire rack of Computer Servers.
It gets better. If you use Chico to replace your standard servers your power bill will drop by around a hundred dollars a month, and you will regain office space the old servers occupied. (Statement based on a single server rack being replaced.)
Another benefit - "No down time for server upgrades." The old servers and network can run concurrently with Chico until the old is no longer needed and turned off.
The Icing on the Cake? All the software is Raspberian, or other free versions of Linux. No expensive Microsoft Software or Server Licenses to purchase!!
The Basic Chico 8 will be priced around $1,700, The Basic Chico 4 will be priced around $1,200. The number next the name indicates how many computers are in the Chico.
More soon - Todd

As you know Computer Dudes does its own research and development. For the last year we have been working on server solutions that use significantly less power and generate less heat.
We are now proud to announce our first line of Server Products under our brandname "Newline MicroServers".
The initial MicroServer is built with 8 Raspberry Pi 4Bs in a plexiglass case that smaller than a loaf of bread. We named it "Chico" because of its size. Chico is portable too when run off 5 volt USB power packs.
The first version is for office and datacenter use. New models will include additional features to allow them to be a security router, network scanning antivirus tool, WiFi extender or access point, advanced email server, live streaming audio-video server, and a whole lot more.
Additionally our servers are already setup to monitor and control factory machines and printing presses... just about any project with motors, sensors, and communications.
Now it is time to talk to some local and regional companies about reducing their Data Center power bills by 2/3rds with our Newline MicroServers.
Each Newline MicroServer has 8 processors and uses a maximum of 125 watts of power. Compared to eight standard rack mount servers that use up to 4000 Watts!
Be sure to check out the photo, it really is smaller than a loaf of bread. :)T

Today we invented a new "Mail-able" Computer that tracks itself as its being transported, measures radio channels, temperature, pressure, motion, speed and "calls home" when it finds an open network.
Sorry, it is proprietary technology and not for sale at this time, but maybe soon. - Todd ;)
