Cheap serverbox Hardware

Boxes matching or surpassing the DreamPlug in price and core features:

  • is supported in Debian (see stable armhf and testing armhf release notes, ARM multiplatform kernel notes, and similar notes for other archs).

  • includes case
  • fanless (in normal rooms, also on very hot days)
  • $160/€120 or cheaper
  • min. ½GB ram (for 32bit operation - likely min. 1GB for 64bit)
  • min. 1GHz CPU (for ARMv5 CPUs - different for other CPUs)
  • uSD slot, easy accessible
  • ethernet (proper builtin or on daughterboard, not "toys" like USB-attached or ENC28J60)

Legend:

  • + at RAM size indicates replaceable option.
  • ? at Debian arch indicates not yet fully supported.
  • b/g/n/ac at Wifi indicates newest supported protocol
  • + at Ethernet speed indicates switch ports
  • ( (./) ) at SATA indicates inferior USB bridge interface

Promising

Upcoming devices looking promising, but not yet available for general sale.

Unsuitable

  • Raspberry Pi: Requires non-free blob to boot (and pretty weak when using Debian - Raspbian is not Debian)

  • Raspberry Pi 2: Requires non-free blob to boot

  • RaspberryPi3: Requires non-free blob to boot

  • Banana Pi Router: Sold only as board, not with case (and likely too expensive with case added).
  • Cubieboard4: Sold only as board, not with case.

Devices too expensive not listed here (that'd be a looong list).
