Raspberry Pi is your new private cloud

Raspberry Pis are versatile, small, inexpensive computers with all sorts of uses. Now they can also be private clouds

The running joke is that Raspberry Pis are cheaper than an actual raspberry pie. Although I wouldn’t pay $50 to $100 for a pie to eat, the idea is to provide a very capable computer, with a small footprint, with built-in networking, running open source software, at a price that hobbyists, as well as professionals, can afford.

I’ve used them for years as IoT devices, considering they can gather, store, process, and transmit data, as well as react to the data if needed. People are using Raspberry Pis on projects such as making motorcycle riding safer and other IoT/edge net-new development.
