Here's an example for the Black.  I believe the same ideas apply to the
Beaglebone (White).


I prefer the Beaglebone to the Pi because of the silly USB glitch but out
of three BBBs only one will run for more than a month without wedging.
This may be because I run Debian but as with the Pi USB bug it's not much
comfort when the box fails.  The Pi I use as an NTP server ran for 4 months
and developed a filesystem error.  It's been up two months post-repair.  If
I depended on a server built around a dev board I'd be careful to make the
SDcard/eMMC read-only and build more than one.
