I’ve hosted various blogs across different platforms. Way back in the day I played around with Geocities and Xanga. Then there were the blessed days of Posterous. Most recently I hosted a blog using Ghost. In this latest foray, I’ll be running one attached to my Github profile using Github:Pages with focus on more technical subjects.
I want to use this blog to document a new sandbox project to explore cluster computing concepts.
A computer cluster is a set of computers working together and viewed as a single system. The individual computers that make up a cluster are called nodes.
Here’s what I’ve purchased so far:
|1||GeeekPi 6-Layers Raspberry Pi Cluster Case (Clear)||Amazon||$20|
|6||Raspberry Pi 4 Model B/4GB||PiShop.us||$55/node|
|6||32 GB SD cards||various||< $10/card|
|1||TP-Link Litewave 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch||Amazon||$16|
|1||CAT 6 Ethernet Cable - 10 Pack (1.5 ft)||Amazon||$13|
|2||AUKEY USB Charger 4 Ports||Amazon||$13|
