You call THAT a router?! 2 Tiny Raspberry Pi Routers

You call THAT a router?! 2 Tiny Raspberry Pi Routers

Take a look at the two smallest Raspberry Pi Routers in existence: The DFRobot IoT Router Board Mini and the Seeed Studio Routerboard! Along the way, learn about networking, OpenWRT, and how these two routerboards stack up against each other. Support me on Patreon:...
A Raspberry Pi takes on KIOXIA’s Enterprise NVMe and SAS SSDs

A Raspberry Pi takes on KIOXIA’s Enterprise NVMe and SAS SSDs

It took some convincing, but KIOXIA sent me two of their latest Enterprise SSDs, the PM6 SAS 24G drive, and the CM6 PCIe NVMe drive, and I test them using the MegaRAID card and ‘Elrond’ storage enclosure sent to me by Broadcom. How do the drives perform?...
Raspberry Pi 2.5 Gbps OMV NAS Build Part 2 – the VERDICT!

Raspberry Pi 2.5 Gbps OMV NAS Build Part 2 – the VERDICT!

How does my 2.5 Gbps Raspberry Pi NAS compare to a dual 2.5 Gbps ASUSTOR Lockerstor 4? Find out in this video, the second part of a two-part series. I will explore the software on both NASes—ADM on the Lockerstor and OMV on the Raspberry Pi—and run some performance...
Raspberry Pi boots off an NVMe SSD, natively!

Raspberry Pi boots off an NVMe SSD, natively!

The Raspberry Pi can now boot off NVMe drives natively—assuming you have the right hardware. NVMe Boot is currently in beta, but will hopefully be available on all Compute Module 4’s soon! This is the fastest way to run a Raspberry Pi, but is it better than just...
Hardware RAID for the fastest Raspberry Pi CM4 NAS!

Hardware RAID for the fastest Raspberry Pi CM4 NAS!

Finally, with a bit of help from some Broadcom engineers, I got full hardware RAID working on a Raspberry Pi. And I actually used SAS drives this time. Special thanks to Broadcom for sending me a controller card and storage backplane to test on the Pi, and for their...
