SBC-based clusters
SBC-based clusters built on Raspberry Pi have been around for years. Other open-spec hacker boards, however, can offer higher computer power and faster networking at the same or lower price.

SBC Clusters — Beyond Raspberry Pi

Cluster computers constructed of Raspberry Pi SBCs have been around for years, ranging from supercomputer-like behemoths to simple hobbyist rigs. More recently, we’ve seen cluster designs that use other open-spec hacker boards, many of which offer higher computer power and faster networking at the...
