The Turbot Tower

I’ve had a number of people ask me about the Turbot Tower I built for doing Kubernetes development and demos

Here is one such demo I made recently:

There is the bill of materials:

  1. Minnowbord Turbot x3 ($140 each)
  2. Silverjaw Lure x3 ($50 each)
  3. Kingston mSATA 60GB SSD x3 ($35 each)
  4. Netgear GS105 5-port Gigabit Switch ($25)
  5. M3 Nylon Stand-offs ($10)
  6. 5V 10A Switching Power Supply ($25)
  7. 2.1mm DC Power Splitter ($4)

Total BOM cost is $739. Final dimensions are 4″(D)x3.75″(W)x5.5″(H). Not bad at all for a 3 machine cluster, each with GbE, SSD storage, 2GB RAM, and a dual-core processor!
