Creating a supercomputer
This recipe turns four Raspberry Pis into a super computer using Apache Spark.
Apache Spark is a fast and general engine for large-scale data processing. In this recipe, Apache Spark is installed on four Raspberry Pis that have been networked into a small computer cluster. The cluster is then used to demonstrate the speed of super computing by calculating the value of pi using a Monte Carlo algorithm.
After completing this recipe, you will have a Raspberry Pi super computer.
The following ingredients are required to create a supercomputer:
- Four basic networking setups for the Raspberry Pi
- A high-speed network switch
This recipe does not require the desktop GUI and could either be run from the text-based console ...
