These are the pre configured cards that we sell with the NEW (1st March 2011) multi boot White SheevaPlugs. You can choose which Operating System you want on the card, and then the size of the card you would like. The cards are the Integral Endurance Class 10 'SLC' SDHC Cards. SLC chipset and high-speed controller provides transfer speeds of up to 30MB/s. Single Layer Cell (SLC) components have up to 10X the lifespan of standard Multi Layer Cell (MLC) used in most memory cards.
Delivery on these items is free when purchased on the same order as a Sheevaplug.
Why would I want another card?
Backup would be the first reason, but booting from an SD card offers at least two other very enticing advantages: that of additional storage and the potential to prepare a collection of SD cards with different applications. We all know how a computer slows down under the weight of too many installed applications; when changing the operating system is as simple as swapping an SD card, we would say that the problem can be eliminated. You could have (for instance) an SD card configured to behave as a NAS device, another as a web server, and yet another for testing and developing other applications.
