I just received a new Banana Pi – actually a Banana Pro model. I needed a small, portable host like the Raspberry Pi that had a Gigabit Ethernet port and the Banana Pro delivers that and many additional features. I am working on a build using the Bananian OS – A debian derivative – that does a lot of what my Raspberry Pi builds do. But can also be a test device for network performance. I will update this post later with more details and you can look forward to more posts on the B-Pi.
