10 Years on…we were right!

Posted by on Feb 13, 2022 in News | No Comments

Almost exactly 10 years we launched this website to coincide with the imminent release of the original Raspberry Pi in 2012. We titled the website ‘A revolution in low cost computing’ and that’s exactly what it became.

With 9 different versions, multiple different configurations and literally thousands of uses, the Raspberry Pi line has been a huge British success story and we are delighted to have watched it from the very beginning.

10 years ago we were busy setting up Orbits IT – a IT Support and Services provider (or Managed Service Provider as some call us now) in Barry, South Wales. Whilst, we aren’t quite the success story that Raspberry Pi became, we now support over 250 companies, across 3 offices (South Wales, Midlands, Bristol), employ 17 people and turnover in excess of £1m a year.

We now use Raspberry Pi’s in throughout our organisation for things such as:

  • Wall boards showing our stats and details
  • CCTV monitoring
  • Digital Signage
  • RetroPie for some old skool gaming

The Raspberry Pi really did change the world and it’s still doing it! We set out to change IT Support and we are still doing it.

Hurrah all round.
