The core building block of scalable Raspberry Pi Clusters.
Each module packs 144 active nodes, six spare nodes and one cluster manager node in a single 6U drawer. Build a 1000 node cluster in 42U for less than $150/node.
At less than 5W/node in full operation you need only 6kW to run 1000 nodes including network fabric and air flow. With modest workloads, and when idle, power consumption is typically under 500W per module.
The key building block of the Cluster Module.
Cluster Packs simplify the mounting of thousands of nodes.
They route and regulate power to every node, locally.
Power the packs and you power the cluster.
Raspberry Pi, the unit of computing in a BitScope Cluster.
The third best selling computer ever, this tiny device punches well above its weight with a 1.2 GHz Quad Core ARMv8 CPU.
Fully provisioned with memory, networking and flexible I/O including USB for additional storage, Raspberry Pi is ready for action "out of the box". Even supports KVM or wireless access.
Capable of running a wide range of full stack software, Raspberry Pi's focus on education, research and open source solutions has resulted in one of the world's largest and most enthusiastic developer communities. Whatever your software design objectives, you will find it easier to achieve with Raspberry Pi.
Up to a 1000+ node cluster in a single 42U rack cabinet with 7 Modules, starting with 5 modules to date.
Raspberry Pi runs cool, PCB acts as heatsink, design uses thermal gradient laminar flow air cooling.
Three x 48 port switches with 2 x 10GB uplinks per switch (total of 6) for TOR connectivity. Internal network easily reroutable patch cables.
PXE boot from an external server or boot the entire cluster from a single Micro SD Card from a spare node. Use 110V ~ 240V AC or 24V DC power.
