Welcome to the Raspèin Project homepage. The goal of this project is to build a very cheap computing cluster using 64 Raspberry Pi boards interconnected with a Fast Ethernet network. The boards are housed in a chassis made of Lego bricks.
The Raspèin cluster is useful for both teaching and research purposes. For example, it is going to be used for the design and evaluation of Parallel And Distributed Simulation, Parallel Algorithms and for the aims of the Smart City Lab.
The assembly of the Raspèin cluster is still in progress. Its construction has been possible thanks to the financial support of Ser.In.Ar..
For daily updates on the building of the raspèin cluster please see the construction diary section. The raspèin cluster is on public display at the Corso di Laurea in Ingegneria e Scienze Informatiche, Via Sacchi 3, Cesena.
