PicoCluster was born out of an engineers desires to learn distributed and parallel computing. As such, PicoCluster is an excellent educational tool for schools at all levels.
We have a number of educators that use PicoCluster at all levels of STEM and computer science education. From model rocket launch monitoring to graduate level dissertations, PicoCluster is a flexible and valuable tool.
Probably the greatest advantage of PicoCluster is that we can pre-configure the application stack that ships with your cluster. The standard PicoCluster distribution is set up with static ip addressing and ssh keys. We offer other Application Sets for Hadoop, Cassandra, ElasticSearch, Docker Swarm, and Kubernetes.
You can learn Big Data, Nosql, Containers, Machine Learning, along with just about any programming language you can think of. PicoCluster was built for education, development, testing, and prototyping.
PicoClusters are available from 3 to 20 nodes with a Pico 3 Starter Kit priced at only $89.00. This makes it affordable for most any budget. PicoCluster also grows as needs grow. Multiple clusters can be simply networked together to form larger clusters.
PicoCluster is SO energy efficient that it will pay for itself in in energy savings alone in just a few months. Compared to AWS EC2 services, again, PicoCluster will pay for itself in just a few months, plus it's yours to keep!
We support boards from Raspberry PI, Pine64, Hardkernel as well as the 8040 MacchiatoBIN board from Solid Run/Marvell. The 8040 board sports dual 10G network interfaces, up to 10GB DDR4 ram, and 3 SATA connectors.
