"We heard you: limited performance for running multiple apps, microSD card corruption, slow SSD, DIY assembly & reliability issues on Raspberry Pi-based umbrelOS servers," Umbrel wrote on Twitter.
"Umbrel's compact home server outperforms a Raspberry Pi 4-based solution in terms of CPU performance, SSD read and write speeds, RAM and memory bandwidth," press release sent to Bitcoin Magazine states.
Key features of Umbrel Home:
- 2.9GHz Quad-Core Intel CPU - 2TB NVMe SSD for super fast storage - 16GB Dual-Channel RAM - Gigabit Ethernet - 3 USB 3.0 ports - Active cooling, silent operation - All this while consuming around just 10 watts of power.
"Pre-orders for Umbrel Home are now available on umbrel.com, with shipping set to begin in June 2023."
"Building a plug-and-play home server that was specifically engineered for umbrelOS has been our dream since day one. With the recent challenges in Raspberry Pi pricing and supply chain, we knew it was time to bring our vision to life, set a new benchmark in self-hosting, and make it accessible to users of all skill levels," said Mayank Chhabra, Umbrel Co-founder and CEO.
"Next month's umbrelOS release will feature our new Migration Assistant, enabling you to effortlessly transfer all your existing data in just one click by connecting your SSD to your Umbrel Home."
