Introduction

The NUC (Next Unit of Computing) is an ultra small form factor desktop computer produced by Intel, both with case and power supply included, or as motherboard only, where you supply your own case.

The key benefit of the NUC is its huge WAF, due to its tiny size and minimal noise unless under high load.

The biggest drawbacks with the NUC were historically the limit of 16GB per node and the lack of a second NIC port. The former has now been resolved as of the 6th generation model, which now supports up to 32GB per node.

Use Cases

The use cases for this type of technology are blah blah

Solutions

A list:

  • Solution A - This is a description, pros and cons and then a link to further detail on that product if you want to expand further?
  • Solution B
  • etc...

This might be better off as a table if there are a large number of possible solutions?
