Gumstix Waysmall Silverlode Computer

Gumstix specializes in tiny computers-on-modules (COMs) that end up in the most creative places, such as on satellite multiprocessor networks, biomimetic fish robots and polar exploration equipment. The company's recently released Waysmall Silverlode Computer adds an extra level of robustness to these COMs by adding the protection of an aluminum case, enabling even more applications in commercial and industrial vertical markets. Gumstix says that the solution, at 2.5 Watts, requires half the power of competing solutions. The Waysmall Silverlode Computer features an 800MHz Gumstix Overo EarthSTORM COM with a Tobi expansion board, a 5V power supply, HDMI-to-DVI cable, USB OTG cable and an 8GB microSD card for booting to Ubuntu. Interior support exists for connecting sensors and actuators.

However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
