I just tried out the Android app. It's not terrible on my Galaxy Note 9. There is a significant delay when writing on the screen using either finger or pen. I'm definitely gonna keep my eye on this one.
ESXi free is limited, 8 vcpu per VM and that limit can be easily reached limit.
It's easily reached if you starve a VM of IOPS or RAM and it's spinning cycles waiting on IO. In reality VERY few things need 8 vCPU. I've seen The ONLY exchange server for 5000 users not need that many resources.
Given modern Skylake hardware, and 4Ghz Intel Xeon Cores's if your hitting the 8vCPU limit I'm REALLY curious why your not willing to spend the one time ~$200 per host that is the Essentials bundle to get some more features is a rounding error in your budget (it's like less than a $1 a day per host).
Keep in mind it is not per hosts, but ~$600 per three hosts, so for much of the SMB that's either $300 or $600 per host and makes things like future upgrades potentially a problem. And $600 per host is enormous for the SMB market. Absolutely staggering. Given that 90% of the market can't even cost justify a server, let alone a server with that much additional licensing.
On a single host, how much value is that $600 getting an SMB versus getting free, unlimited use virtualization with $600 of faster hardware? When we are talking a $3,000 server, an extra $600 is anything but trivial.
The "only $200 per host" is really "holy crap, $200 per host with a minimum of three!!" That's not at all a small number, not in the SMB market. And especially not in an SMB market outside of the US.
Yes, for a "farm" it is totally useless. But for a home garden this is so perfect. It's the right size for a home garden and it handles mixed plants as easily as doing all the same one so perfect for the variety that single families need. An amazing opportunity around growing your own food. It would work really well for people who want fresh veggies for their own consumption. It's an automated system that matches how they farm in Romania, everyone with a tiny plot of their own.
$3k is such a steep hurdle to care for such a small garden. You would almost never recoup your food cost. I'd like to see something like this for about a third of the price. I understand that probably isn't feasible right now in terms of cost and technology, but it would be hard to see any monetary gain at $3k.
Yeah. Like I said before, we'll see this sort of system put on a truck or tractor arrangement of some sort. Add on the auto driving things they have on the newest tractors, and you've got an automated system that can tend to hundreds/thousands of acres without the current need for keeping entire fields being the same crop. Don't even need a driver, just a manager/mechanic.
You would need a separate mechanism for harvesting large quantities, though.
Not all that difficult to do. Most types of crops have some sort of automated harvesting mechanism available (weather it's currently in use over super cheap human labor or not.)
We're talking about mixed stuff, not a field of one plant type.
I realize that ;) A harvesting bot isn't that difficult to do compared to a planting/watering bot.
True, but I highly doubt it could be nearly efficient enough for large-scale farming. A bot that can adapt to harvesting multiple crops and still keep up with a combine taking down a single crop? I don't see that as feasible.
For the insane scale farms generally operating today, sure. For the small (400-800 acres of crops) farms it'd be ideal.
I still don't think the numbers would come even close, but it's all hypothetical anyway. :) We'll have to find out the long way.
I agree. It would take a long time to recoup the initial investment. Labor and machines like tractors are much more affordable for small farms.
It's it @scottalanmiller who said that the NAS has admitted that Amazon has better security than they do? Or did I dream that?
If you are a burgaler looking to steal something, of course you are going to make that statement that you cannot break into a particular area. People will move their valuables into that area and whoops, the thieves have them.
Government sponsored, highly motivated, extremely dangerous combined with serious levels of funding burglars.
But it's where the government moves its stuff. It's not what they tell the public, it's what they do to protect themselves from the public.
