Release preps, and my mobile cluster

I just took this picture on my desk. This is a set of machines running a whole set of tests for RavenDB 3.0. On the bottom right, you can see one of our new toys (more below).


This new toy is a NUC (i5, 16 GB, 180 GB SSD). We have a couple of those (and will likely purchase more).

They have a very small form factor, and they are pretty cool machines. We got a few of them so we can have easier time testing distributed systems that are really distributed.

It also has a very nice effect of actually being able to carry around a full cluster and “deploy” it in a few minutes.
