Testing the PiBox mini 2 a Raspberry Pi MicroK8s server

Jeff Geerling

Kubesail sent me their brandnew PiBox mini 2. It's a 2drive SATA NAS built with the Compute Module 4. It has a frontpanel LCD, native SATA, and more!

I did have a little trouble with the early prototype model they sent, but was able to get that fixed and now have 16 TB of raw storage, and a nice little managed microk8s installation, to boot!
