Unless what you are looking for is integer processing, then the sheevaplug is not a good solution. SInce its ARM based it lacks a real floating point processor, so anything dealing with FP will be inaccurate and slow in the sheeva.

I only have 1 sheevaplug that currently is downloading torrents and serving a 500 gb HDD via AFP and SMB, also it has mysql, apache, mpd (music player) and mt-daap(to share via itunes). The sheevaplug is connected using a standard cat 5e ethernet cable to a 100 mbps router, I have 3 computers using the services. The speed is excellent, and if I had a gigabit ethernet router it would be even better.

If you want to build a network the sheevaplug is quite a good system to use.

Hi,

could you please give some infos how did you configure AFP ? i tried it once on Debian but it didnt work, didnt tried on sheeva though.
Thanx

I see, Floating-point numbers can be as large as 3.40282347E+38 and as low as -3.40282347E+38. Integer is less than that, therefore don't have the computational power.

You know if anytime soon they will come out with FP processing plug computers?

Marvell has other processors like Discovery Innovation family that has floating point co-processor.
Unfortunately there is no plug form factor of those.

If your looking for floating point operations investigate re-purposing video cards.
Here's a teraflop:
