We’ve already covered several cluster solutions based on Raspberry Pi boards such as Bitscope Blade with up to 40 Raspberry Pi boards, a 16 Raspberry Pi Zero cluster board prototype, Circumference “datacenter-in-a-box” with up to 32 Raspberry Pi 3 B+ boards.

If you want something more compact, it makes sense to develop a platform with Raspberry Pi Compute Modules instead, and we’ve already published news about MiniNodes Raspberry Pi 3 CoM Carrier Board that supports up to to 5 Compute Modules 3/3+ last year. There’s now another option with Turing Pi Clusterboard support up to 7 Compute Modules for applications leveraging Kubernetes, Docker, Jupyter Notebook, machine learning (TensorFlow/Caffe), and serverless stack.

The product page does not contain much information at this stage, and specifically no details about software installation or tutorials, but the board is available for pre-order for $128 with shipping planned for this autumn. You’ll also need to add our own Raspberry Pi Compute modules, and with pricing starting at $25 for the RPi CM3 Lite module, and a 7-module system would go for a little over $300, not including microSD cards nor a power supply.
