40 Raspberry Pi cluster

40 raspberris cluster

A brilliant project from engineer David Guill. David wanted a cluster to work on distributed software so he designed and build his own supercomputer!

Here are the specifications of the final system:

  • 40 cores Broadcom BCM2835 @700 MHz
  • 20 GB total distributed RAM
  • 5 TB disk storage – upgradeable to 12 TB
  • ~440 GB flash storage
  • Internal 10/100 network connects individual nodes
  • Internal wireless N network can be configured as an access point or bridge.
  • External ports: four 10/100 LAN and one gigabit LAN (internal network), 1 router uplink
  • Case has a mostly toolless design, facilitating easy hot-swapping of parts
  • Outer dimenions: 9.9″ x 15.5″ x 21.8″.
  • Approximate system cost of $3,000. (The first one cost slightly more.)
