So as to 10g, it’s not like I’m going to use them for production :)

I do miss LOM on the boxes tho – the dual interface would be nice, but I can work around that.
I have a covey (pod? Gaggle?) of 4 NUCs with 1 being the master to deploy the others. That master has 2 nics (built in 1g, wifi) so you can very easily connect your cloud to your network.

This allows my developers to test real multinode deploys of openstack repeatedly without the expense of 3 rack servers, and they can carry around the cloud to meetups or whereever they want to go.

There are a few tweaks to what we’re doing that are based on feedback from what we’ve built already. I use the NUCs as the price point is good, and Intel is down the street from me :)

Shameless plug: more details in our talk at the vancouver if it gets accepted.

i dislike 2 things about the NUCs...

1)  only a single interface
2)  no lights out management

Yes, I was considering waiting for the new NUCs but they’re March
(scheduled) which means general availability sometime after that.
Which would make things a bit tight for my talk at Vancouver (if it gets
