I'm trying to create a micro data-center using multiple plug computers. I know this is not a new idea and I'm quite intrigued by it due to the capability of being a low-cost low-power highly-available data center for a small/medium business.
One thought was to connect the plugs with a switch and use one of the plugs as a NAS server connected to a USB storage. I was wondering if a star configuration is possible for storage. Meaning a single USB storage that is connected to all the plugs directly via a USB hub. Might be a less optimal solution as compared to NAS but interesting nevertheless.
If anyone is building such a system please do let me know how to go about achieving it. I should be receiving about 5 plugs within the next couple of weeks. Yup FIVE! :-), was using up some research budget that was left over from the year. This might be cooler than some of the other prototypes I have done/thought-about
Thanks in advance to the community for all the help.
