Unless you've been under a rock for the past 24 hours you will have noticed the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ has arrived. We've had the privilege of having a couple of pre-production samples to test for the past month or so and this post summarises our first impressions backed by testing with the sample units. In a nutshell, we think it's a real winner! A faster core, better heat profile, wireless and wired network speeds up to 3 times faster and the real kicker, Power Over Ethernet! Read on to f ...
Not even a near record breaking heatwave can stop BitScope Blade hosted Raspberry Pi servers as we discovered by accident when our trusty old Dells came to an ignominious end but the 32 BitScope Blade Raspberry Pi in the same overheating room survived without skipping a beat!   We had an unexpected demonstration of just how robust Raspberry Pi is as a compute platform this week. If you live downunder where our R&D headquarters are, you will know it's been very hot for quite a while. It ...

Read on to learn why Blade comes in three editions and how you can best make use of them.   BitScope Blade Reloaded is our computing infrastructure platform for Raspberry Pi.   It is available in three editions; Uno, Duo and Quattro which power and mount one, two or ...
Raspberry Pi is a great component for building low cost servers!As reported yesterday on the Raspberry Pi Blog, Mythic Beasts managed the online launch of Raspberry Pi 3 in part by hosting it on Raspberry Pi itself ! It was an impressive example of eating your own dog food and Raspberry Pi 3 rose to the challenge for quite a while. Check out Raspberry Pi's latest blog to learn all the details but suffice to say we think Raspberry Pi 2 and now Pi 3 are an excellent choice for building servers. Li ...

Our friends at Raspberry Pi and element14 gave us samples and invited us to exhibit BitScope Blade at the Raspberry Pi 3 launch held today at the Shard in London. Eben introduced this new model to the world as we celebrated ...
