Raspberry Pi Based Hadoop Cluster

Recently one of our student researchers Saimul Hoque (Department of CSE) at our CCSE labs has put together a Raspberry Pi based Hadoop Cluster. If you are unaware of “Apache Hadoop” then just know that this is a Database cluster which is a special type of computational cluster designed specifically for storing and analyzing huge amounts of unstructured data in a distributed computing environment. Using 4 Raspberry Pi ... Read More »

Parallel Programming (using OpenMP & Rapsberry Pi)

In this step by step tutorial we shall learn how to setup a couple of Raspberry Pi’s to create a small cluster. We shall discuss the hardware details, the process, basic OpenMP and Parallel Programming connecting them together and write a basic C++ program to make them work together. We assume you already have the C++ knowledge necessary to take ... Read More »
