Hello All. Apologies if this has been asked/answered somewhere. I would be glad to be pointed to any answers on the forum if any.
So I am interested in deploying Rachel for a number of educational institutions over the next couple of months. I initially wanted to go with the Rachel Pi but was somewhat put off by a caveat on the store that insinuated that Rachel Pi wasn’t a robust solution. I assume that this is because of the SD card vulnerability. Given that the Pi 3 can boot from an external HDD would it be feasible to etch the RachelPi image on a HDD and have the PI boot from such HDD? Would this be a robust enough setup?
Also I am considering using an alternate single board computer (SBC) called the Odroid XU4 Home Cloud 1 which has considerably more processing power and RAM than the PI. However the Odroid only boots from an SD or eMMC although it natively supports access to a SATA HDD. Will it be possible to deploy Rachel on this Odroid such that it boots from say an eMMC/SD but have Rachel run of the SATA HDD?
Every idea and suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance for all the suggestions and advice
