IDEA
  1. We can make our own Deep Learning Cluster with raspberry pi’s. These Deep Learning clusters can be used to train models for Machine Learning and Computer Vision.
  2. We need to think about cooling these many numbers of raspberry pi’s
  3. We need to calculate the power consumption and a means to supply that amount that power. We can make it self-sustaining with solar power (like in the movie “Transcendence”).
  4. Raspberry Pi Foundation has a service of providing customized rpi boards. Except the master node in the cluster, we do not need a lot of onboard peripherals on the slave nodes except ethernet and micro usb. This will help reduce the cost drastically.

hii Sandhan,
Thanks for your interest on cluster computers.
firstly we are creating a four node raspberry cluster and then after adding many nodes to it. then cooling these many computers is hard thing for that we can have a case that lines up fans which further cools our machine.
the main aim for building this computer is we can have large amount of data calculated with high speeds and doing research on how supercomputers and cloud computing works.

please tell me about how you have started your project and what are your interests?

1 year back me and one of my friends bought raspberry pi 2 s. He had this crazy urge to build a raspberry cluster. So, we collected one more raspberry pi 2, so we had total of three, one master and two slaves. Then we had this wonderful tutorial on making a raspi cluser on tinkernut.com. So, we followed the steps there and finally after some tweaking it worked. Thats how i started by first raspi cluster.

I have a raspi 3 and have ubuntu in my laptop. So, basically i work in python and bash all the time. I use them individually or both combined to automate most of the tasks in my laptop and raspberry pi. My active area of interest is machine learning and data science, so i am quite familiar with many python modules plus i have good idea of compiling softwarea from source on linux platforms.
