Install Rocks Cluster Distribution on raspberry pi


There are lots of websites about making a super computer with raspberry pi. Is it possible to install "Rocks Cluster Distribution" on raspberry to have a more efficient cluster?

Not that I know of. The latest version is only x86_64. Rocks is based upon CentOS which does not have an official port for the ARM architecture.

A good question. I guess one could maybe get it working on some level. Not sure how much time it would take. It isn't usually a direct swap of hard drive so to speak to move from one platform to another.

The main problem is that once you get a rocks cluster up, you have to have some work for it. As far as I know, no one has a working model that takes many computers and makes a better, faster, more power efficient home system. Most of the supercomputers are limited to very specific tasks. Where I work at we use 50 or so Xeon quad cores in a specialized cluster to do one task. Actually it now does two tasks after an upgrade a few years ago.
