Building a Raspberry Cluster - Multi-Day-Workshop for HRZ Trainees

What could be a better way to understand how an HPC cluster is built than building one yourself? We throw dozens of Raspberry Pis, Cables, SD-cards and stuff on a big table and see what happens. At the end of the workshop you will have assembled a basic cluster, configured the network, and run the first MPI application on it, just like on one of its bigger siblings like bonna or bender.

As part of the HRZ trainee programm we offer an extended workshop on cluster architecture, going much more in depth than the 1-day students course. Apart from the tasks described in the 1-day-workshop overview, the trainees will

  • install and configure a batch system
  • install software using Easybuild and modules
  • add a basic file system
  • construct a chassis for the cluster so that it can be installed in standard racks, including cooling
  • integrate the Raspi-cluster into existing infrastructure

Basic knowledge of the Linux / UNIX shell is needed. Basic knowledge of git is helpful.

This course will be conducted in German.

Next Workshop


09:00 - 17:00


The course will be held at the HRZ, Wegelerstr. 6. The course is limited to 30 participants.
