Hello everyone,

I work with large databases and programs that take up about 8 GB of memory in my virtual machine.
However my programs don't need a lot of computing power. About 800 or so MHz is enough.
With low computing requirements, I like the idea of using ARM processors. However, I need at least 8 GB.
I was looking around at projects like CuBox, and Pandaboard; and thought this is exactly what I need, just with more RAM.

If I get one of these kind of boards, does anybody know how I can pad in more RAM?
Otherwise, is there any ARM board out there that can handle 8+ GB RAM?

Perhaps connect two or more boards together and have them all share lots of RAM?

Once again, looking for high memory, low processing power.

I know I can buy a board with high memory and high power. I don't want that.
We are looking to have efficient, preferably fanless boards for our databases..

Welcome to the

It would be easier to look at an AMD/Intel CPU with an ATX motherboard than and embedded CPU like an ARM... VIA do a lot of boards like this, but RAM expansion is always limited... Check out the mini ITX boards wiyh embedded CPU's from VIA, ASRock,ZOTAC and Intel, they have far better expansion capabilities.

I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...
