Hello, MrSmiley. Thank you for getting in touch with us!
The BRCK+Pi was something we conceived to give the BRCK, which is at its most basic a router, additional processing power. It worked to some degree, but there were some issues:
- It could not handle more than 10 devices at a time,
- It was slow, and
- Rebooted whenever the load exceeded a certain limit.
So, due to our and the market's changing needs, especially around Education, we built the next BRCK which will be a router with micro-server capabilities, removing the need to have an additional computing module.
It will have the same ruggedness and hackability of the BRCK and still be relatively easy to set up and configure to your needs.
We are already using it for our Education initiative and also testing it for roll-out, which will be in about 6-8 weeks. As we near the release date, we will communicate more about this.
I would therefore recommend waiting for that one to come out. It would be the device to serve your needs
Does this clear things up?
