Hello,

Just a hypothetical, can you do it successfully sort of question, has anyone attempted to host ArcGIS Server on an SBC (single-board computer), say on something like:

Home - PINE 64 ?

I am aware of the sys reqs listed here:

ArcGIS for Server system requirements—Installation Guides (10.3 and 10.3.1) | ArcGIS for Server

...as well as the issues with a lack of support if there isn't full binary compatibility with an equivalent supported Red Hat version. Seems that all of the specs would be met, except for perhaps memory, but the sample dev stack listed can off-load some of that, e.g. web adaptor, to another SBC.

Additionally, I know Esri has discussed IoT and its implications with the GeoEvent extension - just wondering if anyone has had success in deploying it to an SBC.

Thanks!

Doh! I just realized PINE is ARM, so that knocks that out. That's what I get for being excited! Maybe something like an Intel MinnowBoard would work... More expensive, though, but still not too bad at ~$100

This is mainly just for proof-of-concept type stuff...
