Affordable,
self-governed &
community-driven
computer clusters

This page is a repository for makers and tinkerers. We share building plans and source code, to create and provision our very own computer clusters.

Shared Building Plans

Uploaded and shared building plans for smart solutions of clustering concepts. Whether it is a cluster of e.g. Intel NUC barebone computers, single-board computers like Raspberry Pis or other beowulf concepts. The building plans should challenge the status-quo while following some basic conceptual quality factors, such as

  • reproducibility
  • understandability
  • maintainability
  • extendibility

Uploaded concepts are shared on a dedicated sub-section of this page.

“Enabling people – or even institutions – with tight budgets to create self-governed compute solutions can be a big plus. Just think of the educational benefits for children and especially those potential talents in less privileged parts of the world.”

Shared Provisioning Source Code

Uploaded, shared or demonstrated provisioning tools and scripts can be found here. Be it a smart layout of an Ansible project to provision your cluster with Kubernetes, OpenShift, Docker Swarm or a distributed Filesystem, such as GlusterFS, or a completely different approach. Shared projects should be well documented and the source code should follow some basic quality factors, such as

  • portability & reproducibility
  • understandability
  • maintainability
  • extendibility

Uploaded concepts are shared on a dedicated sub-section of this page.

“Ownership of a computer cluster is an asset. It is a matter of education, privacy, control and budgets. Startups and researchers can now host their business- and research-secrets on their self-hosted infrastructure.”
