Great solution for any DIYer project-whoobee

I purchase this board to use it in my MagicMirror project, and it is perfect, I needed an x86 SBC in order to use MagicMirror with Ultraleap for no touch controls, because no-one wants to have fingerprint smudges on their mirror.The ZimaBoard works perfect in my project, I also experimented a bit with TrueNas where this board I would say is at home.....

When I got this I was blown away from the initial packaging to just the size and feel of it! It's got multiple ports shown in my pictures, but what really sets it apart is the PCIe slot. It's an open ended 4x slot thats a 2.0 slot. This is unique and greatly opens up the possibilities of what you can connect to it right out of the box! From wireless to graphics cards to hard drives.....

I'm actually quite fond of the ZimaBlade itself. It gives you a lot of powerful hardware and server-friendly expansion at a hobbyist-friendly price.

Best NAS Service for me to hassle Home Networking - Jerry Swift

Best NAS Service for me to hassle Home Networking - Jerry Swift

If you want your own NAS / DNS / home networking lab but don’t want the hassle of delivering into config files and Linux then ZimaBlade is a great way to get results, fast. If you work within the limitations of CasaOS and enjoy the one-click installers then you will have everything you need to serve your content / files across a network.

What sets ZimaBlade apart ZimaBoard? Are there just differences in IO?
ZimaBlade is designed as a more compact, budget-friendly option with slightly reduced features, aiming to make home lab and personal cloud setups more accessible. ZimaBoard, however, will focus on larger size, enhanced performance, and more interface options, moving away from ZimaBlade's ultra-compact design. These differences mean ZimaBoard and ZimaBlade cater to distinct use cases within the Zima product ecosystem, reflecting community feedback and user suggestions over two years.
Will there be a dual NIC version of the ZimaBlade?
The multi-NIC product line will be positioned in the ZimaBoard and further models. ZimaBlade will focus more on credit card size, passive cooling, and stackable product form factor evolving. The current version remains in Realtek's NIC.
I'd like to build a rackmount cluster of ZimaBlades. Is this technically possible?
Through community interactions, we've identified clustering as a popular application scenario. Utilizing software like PVE and Ansible, you can swiftly set up a compact desktop-level cluster. The Zima team is also exploring a concept design for a server inspired by the HAL9000 prototype, based on the ZimaBlade.
Is the ZimaBlade system appears to meet the minimum requirements for TrueNAS. Has the system been tested running TrueNAS?
Yes, we've previously conducted basic compatibility testing and verification for TrueNAS. Additionally, here's a link to a user's installation test video with ZimaBoard for your reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwHvHMTkva8
I have the ZimaBoard already any reason to get the ZimaBlade?
We invested some time to customize the optimization and make ZimaBlade support 16GB of RAM. ZimaBlade is more compact and small compared to Board, and the design of C-port also allows it to be one of your daily portable arithmetic modules, plug in a C-port display, and your personal developer starts to work. In the small x86 Cluster scenario ZimaBlade also has more room for activity, we are actively designing some open source models and sharing them in the community, if you are interested, we sincerely invite you to participate in community discussions in this kind of direction.
Can I connect a 3.5" HDD to each of the two SATA ports on the ZimaBlade using a SATA Y cable without issues?
Yes, the SATA Y cable is fully compatible with connecting two 3.5" HDDs to the ZimaBlade, a setup that has been confirmed for its engineering integrity and reliability over time.
How to ssh ZimaBlade's default OS?
To SSH into CasaOS: 1. Get IP: Check your router to find the CasaOS device IP. 2. SSH Command: Type ssh casaos@IP_ADDRESS in your terminal. 3. Credentials: Use "casaos" for both username and password. Quick and secure, you're now connected to CasaOS.
Does ZimaBlade support Wake on LAN?
ZimaBlade features Wake on LAN (WoL), enabling remote power-on and wake-up from sleep or off states for convenient network access. This feature can be enabled or disabled through BIOS settings.
