Just got myself this week a PCEngines APU4d4 for use as a NethServer (Demo-Object…).
The APU 4d4 are - at the moment - better available than the ones with 3 NICs or two NICs.
With a Quadcore AMD, 4 GB RAM, 4 Intel NICs and a 120 GB SSD, the performance is quite OK.
I’m using it with a blue casing. (NethServer has a blue logo…)
All the other PCEngines are running OPNsense, and have a red casing…
No moving parts, so nice and quiet. Low power usage…
This box will boot a standard USB3 stick with NethServer installer, all’s needed is appending the boot prompt with this:
NICs and all are recognized as expected!
