Introducing HPC with a Raspberry Pi Cluster

Colin Sauze from Aberystwyth University gave this talk at FOSDEM 2020. “The motivation for this was to overcome key problems faced by new HPC users. The talk will also discuss some of the technical challenges in deploying an HPC environment to a Raspberry Pi and attempts to keep that environment as close to a “real” HPC as possible. Methods to automate the installation process will also be covered.”

Video: An Affordable Supercomputing Testbed based on Raspberry Pi

In this video from SC17, Bruce Tulloch from BitScope describes a low-cost Rasberry Pi cluster that LANL can use to simulate large-scale supercomputers. “The BitScope Pi Cluster Modules system creates an affordable, scalable, highly parallel testbed for high-performance-computing system-software developers. The system comprises five rack-mounted BitScope Pi Cluster Modules consisting of 3,000 cores using Raspberry Pi ARM processor boards, fully integrated with network switching infrastructure.”
