I wanted to create something that would let people develop distributed applications without needing access to a supercomputer. But the same applications could then be scaled to CloudLab via GENI.
How it works
The cluster utilized the SLURM scheduler and OpenMPI.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
What's next for the Raspberry Pi Cluster
It's still up and running! I've thought about how building one could be used as a hands on exercise to teach networking. This project is very accessible, and its construction could be boiled down into something a team as young as 12 or 13 could accomplish it.
