Compute Stations are well define computing devices for hosting Disposable Nodes.
There are currently 4 types of compute stations:
- Home Station
- Satellite Station
- Campus Station
- Public Station
They allow you to distribute your information assets in locations that make the most sense.
There are many ways to deploy Compute Stations, all you need is a physical or virtual machine that can run Ubuntu Server (20.04 or 22.04) - which means most computers on earth!
- Repurpose spare laptops or second hand desktop computers - Boot up using USB stick.
- Run inside existing Windows or macOS or Linux computers - Using Virtual Machines.
- Install on non Intel/AMD computers (from [Raspberry Pi to IBM Z Mainframe) - Using ISO Images.
Once you have got a newly installed Ubuntu Server online, you just need to download ONE publicly published script, run it and your Ubuntu will be come a Home Station. Yes, it is that simple.
You can either build it yourself or have someone build it for you.
