Introducing the A.M TuringPi (nano) computer cluster (update)

The Logo (so far).

Introduction.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, I am delighted to introduce my next pet project, the A.M TuringPi computer cluster, based on Raspberry Pi 2 boards, using a Linux based Operating System, taking advantage of its scalability and outstanding PXE support.

The project is named in honour of Alan Turing

Goal.

 

The goal is to create a "poor man's" 8 node (nano) computer cluster, who everyone - with average computer knowledge - is able to deploy. With the introduction of the powerful, yet energy efficient and cheap Raspberry Pi2, deploying your very own computer cluster, became a reasonable and valid option.

Base System (update April 2 2015).

 

The base system will be a 3 node system for the first experiments, I will add nodes from time to time.

Implementation.

 

The A.M TuringPi computer cluster will consist of a MU (Master Unit), while all other units are called nodes.

The MU will have a keyboard, mouse, screen attached and will also provide boot- and disk services. All other nodes will merely provide CPU power and RAM.

Documentation.

 

Since the A.M TuringPi project is probably too technical, to post on general Social Media, I will keep you up to date with the progress on osg33x.
