RE: Running linux from CF
Anyone have experience running linux from compact flash media?
I need to make linux machines to run OpenSwan at a few sites in my company. Since some sites have no IT staff, I want these machines to have very high reliability. I'm thinking that zero moving parts would increase my reliability a bit, so I went with C3 processors (no fan needed) and I'm thinking of using CF Media with IDE-CF adaptors as primary storage.
Any thoughts on what to expect from CF as primary storage, as far as performance and reliability are concerned?
