Administrator guy in Netherlands

Post by stendeban »

Hello to all my fellow engineers and administrators,

I am a Linux tech enthusiast and I am dipping my toes in the field of hardware.
So far, I never really got into hardware specifications and performance and I have primarily focused on the software/automation side.

However, I have some crazy ideas for starting my own company with Linux IT and IT automation services.
For this, I am investigating the potential of Odroid devices as a business venture.
What matter to me the most in hardware are power consumption and stability, and I believe that Odroid is a real contender in those fields.

So while I fully intend to embark on a long Odroid-powered adventure, I could use some advice finding the best models and setups.
Would anyone know which models are most efficient in electric power?

Welcome! Are you planning on using battery operated devices? What are you going to run on it - in terms of cpu/memory? There are differented classes of odroids. The "industrial" one is M1. The best performance one is N2+. It depends...

I'm guessing M1 is the lowest power model.. Just guessing though, maybe one of C series would beat it in comparison.
N2+ or N2L are the most powerful as @mad_ady said, and best suited for desktop use if that's what you're after.
Personally I use M1 as a server at home due to low power consumption and SATA connectivity, among other features.
