Here is a one good reason to dust-off that old Ethernet switch from the 90's .
It is an elegant solution to building the 7 node Desk Cluster out of Raspberry Pi computers and a bunch of assorted hardware you might just happen to have at home. Talk about progress!
Any doubts ARM based servers? Then let's quote:
"The low power use of these things is incredible, as is the small size, the fact they are totally silent, and because they are so cheap, it is very viable to have one per task (or set of tasks).
Previously I ran a Sempron 3000+ laptop as my 'server' doing everything, and it had fan noise, and used more power than 10x Raspberry Pi's, and if I borked the system, it took down EVERYTHING. (It wasn't able to run virtualisation to suit my needs).
Love the Pi."
