Database Server hosted on a Raspberry Pi!?

This is crazy stuff here, but it’s an interesting concept:

I can see many low-cost industrial uses for this.  As a data historian for example on a manufacturing line, or collecting data from scientific instruments.  Perhaps running a cluster of these units for less than $500!

There are space savings and power savings at play as well — how about combining with a Pi based webserver to create a mobile wifi data hub during disasters running out of an SUV or RV?
