I’m quite pleased with the Intel NUC boards that came with my surplus Rabbit cloud, but I can’t say the same about the Nvidia Jetson TK1 boards. They’re weird, flaky, limited, and haven’t proved useful even in simple applications. Frankly, I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the 15 Jetsons sitting in my office!
We live in a world of cattle, not pets, and Kubernetes rules the roost. I’ve been meaning to spend some time getting up to speed on the latest but didn’t have enough hardware to make that happen until now. I recently bought a whole pile of surplus hardware so I will be able to experiment with orchestration and container platforms in the office.
