When we saw pictures of Brianâ€™s cluster we were impressed and when we shared these with the community, it became apparent that we were not the only ones! It didnâ€™t take long before curiosity got the better of me and I decided to get in touch with Brian to find out moreâ€¦
Hi Brian, can you tell me about the Parallella cluster you are building.
Iâ€™m building a low-power general purpose compute cluster. I want it to be able to take advantage of standard distributed system packages so that thereâ€™s a familiar developer model. The Parallella boards are great for computation but since they have relatively limited storage and memory, I added two Intel NUCs. Each NUC has 1x Intel i3, 16GB RAM, 120GB SSD, 802.11ac WiFi and are also pretty low-power.
