Celeum Technology

At Celeum, we're passionate about open source. We aim to bring you devices that are:

  • Easy to use
  • Inexpensive
  • Better than proprietary solutions


We need your help

In order to mass produce our innovative devices, we're asking for your help. For just $10000 we can get a head start on manufacturing, lowering costs even further down the line. Your contribution won't be for nothing either - if you donate more than $199, a Celeum device will be shipped to you immediately following the end of our crowdfunding campaign (even if we don't make our goal).


And now, for those of you who donate more than $99, we'll ship you our brand new design - the Celeum MiniPC!

What we're planning


Initially, we'll be making three devices, and you get your choice for a donation of $199 or more - a $30 savings compared to our regular price (after funding) of $229 Here's what you get to choose from:

Celeum PC

The Celeum PC is a fully functional, professional desktop computer for home and business. It comes with both Google’s Android and DickMacInnis.com’s DreamStudio operating systems, along with office, graphics, video, audio, and internet apps, games, and thousands of additional software titles available through both Google Play and the Ubuntu Software Center.

  • All preinstalled apps are full versions, and there are no additional demo apps or ads to remove.
  • Fully compatible with all popular formats, including Microsoft Office documents and Adobe Reader.
  • Professional graphic design, video editing, and audio production suite are standard thanks to DreamStudio.
  • Run all your favorite apps, like Angry Birds, Skype, and Google Chrome
  • Ultra portable form factor lets you take your desktop with you!

Celeum Cloud Server

The Celeum Cloud Server is your personal file sharing cloud, giving you the freedom of access you love in cloud sharing services like Dropbox and Google Drive, with the privacy of your own server. You’ll never have to worry about bringing your files with you, as you’ll always have access on your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer, your iPhone or Android smartphone, or anywhere else you have internet access. The best part is: your files always stay in your care – they’re never stored on another company’s server, so you remain in control. Users can be added locally or authenticated with LDAP for seamless integration with your Celeum Domain Server or Active Directory server.

The web interface and secure shell are easy to use for remotely managing your Cloud Server, extra storage is easy to add, and there are many additional plugins available like shared calendars, instant messaging, and even audio and video players for important presentations.

Celeum Domain Server

The Celeum Domain Server is the perfect solution for business with up to 100 users or PCs. It’s 100% compatible with Microsoft’s Active Directory, and includes all the features you’d expect, like centralized login, user and group management, file and printer sharing, roaming profiles, DHCP, and DNS.

To provide maximum uptime, the Celeum Domain Server is designed with redundancy in mind. You can easily sync two Domain Servers for the ultimate in availability, and the entire running and configured system can be backed up in less than an hour. There are no moving parts in a Celeum Domain Server, meaning fewer points of failure than in a traditional domain controller. And even if disaster strikes, a functioning backup or live image can be deployed on a new Celeum Domain Server in less time than it takes to boot a Windows Server box.

The software is all open source and based on Linux – technology that’s trusted by everyone from Google to the New York Stock Exchange, and includes both an easy to use web interface and secure shell. Both can quickly be disabled for internet facing machines or in other situations where local access is preferred for security reasons.

All this hardware and software for less than the cost of a Windows Server license, and you’ll never have to worry about upgrade fees or per user licensing again.

 

 

All three devices share the same hardware specifications, namely:

  • Quad Core 1.7ghz CPU
  • Quad Core GPU – HDMI output in full 1080p
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8GB eMMC system disk
  • Built in Ethernet
  • 2 Full size USB ports
  • MicroSD for storage expansion up to 64GB

The base for our systems is an Odroid-U2 with a Samsung Exynos 4412 CPU and Mali400 GPU.

Here are some pictures of the hardware:
