For an appliance, consider an armv7 board. Some like Raspberry, I do
not. I use the Cubieboards. The Cubieboard2 can be had for $65 and is
better than a RPi2. With Sata etc. Fedora22 is available; F23 in beta
as is Centos7.
I have a Cubieboard with the Centos7-arm beta. I have a special build
of the sernet 4.2 for it.
You can run your armv7 completely on a 16Gb mSD card. With the
Cubieboards, you can easily use sata by putting all your partitions on
the sata (connect it to your installation system with a USB/sata adapter
to do this), and ONLY have uboot on a 4Gb cheap mSD (do the install on
the mSD, then delete all partitions).
Have fun! I am.
