Southampton University build a Raspberry Pi Cluster

raspberry_pi_one.jpg While the media may be calling this a 'super computer'. The Pi Cluster built by Southampton University will not be breaking any benchmark records. It does however provide a valuable low cost model to develop clustered and parallel computing for students and engineers. It also demonstrates how low power Arm is eating into new markets including now the educational space.

The 64 node Pi cluster runs off a single 13 Amp mains socket using stock debian. The whole system cost under £2,500 (excluding switches). It has 1Tb of memory and 16Gb SD cards for each Raspberry Pi. The team was lead by Professor Cox

Their details for their implementation can be found on the University web page http://www.southampton.ac.uk/~sjc/raspberrypi/
