A project log for Clunky McCluster

This PCB makes it practical and efficient to build a small cluster of 4 Raspberry Pi (a Quad) that can be connected to other quads.

Some old stuff, some new stuff...

I received more stuff and here is the situation:

So far it seems I can shoot for a cluster of 4 quads, or 16 Pis, or 64 cores if I slowly replace the old single-core boards with newer ones. I hope that the overall throughput will help me with my current projects... The nice thing is that it is scalable and features can be added progressively. Another order of magnitude can then be gained once the GPU is harnessed. For now I need brute-force trivial jobs and it could evolve later, for example with distributed memory, so short and fast messages will become critical.
