  5. 5. 5© Bull, 2012 The Raspberry Pi Eben Upton and his colleagues at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory, became concerned about the year-on-year decline in the numbers and skills levels of the A Level students applying to read Computer Science in each academic year The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word- processing and games. It also plays high-definition video.

  10. 10. 10© Bull, 2012 The Raspberry Pi
  11. 11. 11© Bull, 2012 Raspberry Pi Because it is a 5V DC device it can be run from a small battery pack – giving the ability to smooth incoming power and also prevent power interruptions. The SME monitor can survive power outages even when UPS’ are not deployed or are confined to essential equipment. Open up possibilities of using Out of Band alerts for environmental outages – using a real mobile phone for SMS text alerting would mean that both the Raspberry Pi and the mobile phone could continue to work during a total power loss.

  26. 26. 26© Bull, 2012 Futures & ‘Blue Sky thinking’ The All-in-One commercially could cost less than $1999 Including all equipment, a days installation / configuration and a limited number (3-5) calls to a helpdesk. Small & Medium enterprises could have their own system monitors with alerting and visual displays for less than a cost of a small rack server. Easily extend to Environment Monitoring Possible European offer by Bull as ‘Vision-Pi’ as part of their Vision Services offer.
  27. 27. 27© Bull, 2012 Futures & ‘Blue Sky thinking’ Still more possibilities Can Nagvis or NagiosTV be implemented on the All-in-One Can Nagios XI be built and be practical on the All-in-One. – Will the sizing & performance be practical ? – Can a suitable licencing scheme be worked out with Ethan for ARM ? What other monitoring scenarios can be added ?
