Blade Chassis

Fri Jun 27, 2014 12:35 am

To all you hardware guru's out there, my hat is off to you.
I've been reading extensively the cluster work so many have done with the PI.
With my job, I'm getting more and more into BLADE Servers and always thought how there really isn't a DIY home blade chassis one could build. Then I wondered if it would be possible with the PI?

Just looking to your thoughts. all the best

With the new compute module you could easily design a blade chassis to house as many rPi's as you needed.

this could actually be awesome, figure a board with say 5 or 10 compute module dimms on it, gotta find a way to get ethernet to be really useful though
