Jeff Geerling reviews a computer with 96 cores.
He also has a Petabyte Pi Project. 60 hard drives connected to a
Raspberry Pi. He used a Storinator to make this work. Kinda. It took
6 minutes to boot with all of those hard drives. And RAID had timeout
issues. It's not surprising because the Pi was not designed for
something like this. Power-up is another issue too. Powering up that
many drives at once would cause a big power surge, so the Storinator
borrows something from mainframe days. It staggers powering up the
drives to reduce the power surge.
