SD card wear

(07-06-2017, 04:17 PM)Robbie Ferguson Wrote: Hi ChorleyCake,
Yes, this is a very real concern with Raspberry Pi / SD Cards, and one I take very seriously.

In order to extend the life of your card, the most aggressive write operations are done in memory (not on your SD card).

In addition, through nems-migrator I have made it extremely easy to 1) backup your entire configuration instantly, automatically and most importantly while the server is online, and 2) restore to a new deployment/SD card just as easily reducing downtime and labor should your SD card expire.

You'll also notice when you visit our purchase link that I recommend very specific SD cards from Kingston Technology. They have proven to work very well for me.

Hope this helps shed some light on my approach to this issue.


Thanks Robbie, that's good to hear. I haven't yet experienced a failure, although with the exception of my manual install of nagios4 [[which NEMS replaced] [and never configured beyond replacing the examples]], I've never used anything that does a lot of writes.
I have to say I'm loving NEMS.
