We’ve ported Stacki, our bare-metal x86_64 server installer, to support Raspberry Pis.
The source code and documentation on how to get started can be found at https://github.com/StackIQ/stacki-ace.
Additional info can be found here: https://www.stackiq.com/raspberry-pi-cluster/.
Potential Use Cases:
You have a cluster of Raspberry Pis and you need an easy way to get their software stacks configured, their network configured and their storage configured.
You want to consistently deploy a clustered solution on your Raspberry Pis, for example, distributed storage (e.g., Ceph), container solution (e.g., Kubernetes), parallel programming workload (e.g., MPICH), etc.
You want to easily customize the entire software stack for your Raspberry Pi.
You need a easy way to support your “Internet of Things” project.
You want to install and configure traditional x86_64 servers with a low-cost device.
