Have you considered using Bulgarian LIMEs instead of Raspberries? About same price, but slightly more CPU power and SATA connector.

Otherwise nice offer, beats nx-box in price.

@gxbfxvar yes, we've considered these, i have some of these at the office for testing / development.

I've talked with the owner of Olimex about the possibilities to make us some custom boards with our specifications... but he wasn't very enthusiastic about the idea. I also asked him if he would sell us just the PCBs, without the elements so we could assemble them in a local factory, but he didn't want to sell just the PCBs either. And there is no factory here that can make the PCBs, they must be made in China... so for now i am not rushing with the Lime based servers. Still looking at various options.
