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...
