Ocean: The Linux web server that fits in your pocket
Want a portable Linux powered web server that will fit in your pocket? Look no further than ocean.
Ocean was designed from the ground up for portability and has a built-in battery that lets you run web and Bluetooth apps in places where direct power is limited.
The device is approximately the size of an iPhone 6 and can easily fit in your pocket.

- Building and deploying web applications using frameworks such as Node.js or Ruby-on-Rails
- Build a custom router
- IoT hub
- Prototyping of iBeacon or Eddystone beacons
The device can also double as a portable battery for iPhones and Android devices, and has enough power to charge an iPhone 6 1.3 times.
Ocean has the following technical characteristics:
- 1GHz dual-core Cortex-A7 ARM processor
- 1 GB DDR3 480 MHz RAM
- Internal 16 GB micro-SD card for storage
- 4 GB internal flash chip
- One USB 2.0 / 3.0 port

- Support Qi wireless charging
- 4,200mAh internal battery for up to 2 days of continuous processor use
- Comes with Debian 8.1 (Jessie) pre-installed and Linux Kernel 3.4.105+
