Why would you build a Raspberry Pi Cluster?

Why would you build a Raspberry Pi Cluster?

Everyone seems to be asking, so I figured I’d answer. I’ll explain what I use my small Pi clusters for, and what some other people use them for. But also, why cluster in the first place? Can’t you just buy an EPYC 64-core CPU and an RTX 3080 and have...
Raspberry Pi Blade crams 64 ARM cores and NVMe in 1U!

Raspberry Pi Blade crams 64 ARM cores and NVMe in 1U!

Uptime.Lab’s 1U Blade is a rack-mountable Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4-based server. Capable of cramming 64 ARM CPU cores in 1U of rack space, this blade could make a powerful Pi cluster. And built-in features like PoE+ support, an M.2 slot for NVMe SSDs, and a...
Building the best Raspberry Pi NAS – Wiretrustee SATA

Building the best Raspberry Pi NAS – Wiretrustee SATA

I’ve built a few Raspberry Pi NASes in my day, but none were *this* nice. The Wiretrustee SATA is listed on Crowd Supply and will allow you to plug in a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 and up to four SATA hard drives or SSDs to build your own gigabit NAS....
Raspberry Pi Rack – 6 node 3D Printed 1U Pi cluster

Raspberry Pi Rack – 6 node 3D Printed 1U Pi cluster

I got tired of having Raspberry Pis hanging about my office. So I found a really nice 3D model for a 1U Pi rack by russross on Thingiverse, printed it, and put it in my new rack. I’ll show you everything in this video! Special thanks to Russ Ross for his videos...
Thermal Testing My Water Cooled Raspberry Pi Cluster – Does Loop Order Matter?

Thermal Testing My Water Cooled Raspberry Pi Cluster – Does Loop Order Matter?

In this video I’ll be doing a thermal test on my water cooled Raspberry Pi cluster to see if the water cooling system is effective and to see if there is any significant temperature difference between the first and last nodes, since they’re all connected...
