Late to the party but I'd like to see about a second case option to be able to rack these as storage units (drive + board) in e.g. a top loading chassis. My target is Ceph so having the 1 compute unit to 5 drives is a great ratio for a single ceph unit - scale-out is achieved by just buying more. Most of the options for Ceph are really x86 servers which has a severe growth on money and size.

 

Not suggesting a do-over, just a way to unwrap the outer shell and have the inner components be supported by internal skeleton which can be dropped into some larger supporting shell -- along with a few friends. :)
