I have several dozen Pis deployed in the Chicago area that work as filters for Positive Train Control network data streaming back to my office in Seattle. They're cheap, they do the job, and while they aren't particularly reliable, they're cheap.

There are also several projects that place several dozen Pis on a network that allow students to develop software intended to run on large scale super-computing arrays without having to pay for time on those systems until they are sure their project is ready to run.

In short, they are great any time you need something easy to deploy that you don't really care if it frys itself or not.

I'd never run Reaper on one, though.
