The idea is to create a mini cluster with 15 raspberry pi connected to a single 16 port switch and to a single 5V power supply. It has to be as light as possible and transportable. Each node need to be switchable (on/off) easily and to have a minimal UI (LEDs connected to GPIO pins).
I want to use it as a lab for computation (PVM, MPI/LAM, DRQueue, Torque, Mosix, Blender, ...) but also as distributed storage lab (MongoDB, HDFS, ...).
The wiki is a good starting point on this site as it explains all the steps to create this cluster.
