Welcome to the Raspèin Project homepage. The goal of this project was to build a very cheap computing cluster using 64 Raspberry Pi boards interconnected with a Fast Ethernet network. The boards were housed in a chassis made of Lego bricks.
The Raspèin cluster was useful for both teaching and research purposes. For example, it has been 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 has been possible thanks to the financial support of Ser.In.Ar.. At the end of 2018, the cluster has been dismantled.
The construction diaryof the raspèin cluster please is still available in the construction diary section. The raspèin cluster was on public display at the Corso di Laurea in Ingegneria e Scienze Informatiche, Via Sacchi 3, Cesena.
