For most server tasks, the original Raspberry Pi was completely inappropriate. The problem was its low CPU and I / O speed, as well as the small memory. These three components reduced the possibilities. This has changed with Raspberry Pi 3 B. Both CPU speed and memory are optimal for typical server tasks. At the same time, the power consumption is so low that it plays no role in continuous operation.
However, there is a limitation. The connection of the network interface is not optimal. It hangs on the internal USB. If you connect even more USB devices, then it also limits the speed of the network interface.[Read more…] about Raspberry Pi as a server in continuous operation (24/7)
