I’ve been mostly managed my container via SaltStack’s docker module but have looked at Docker Swarm quite a bit at least for my own easier projects where salt is a bit overkill (hey I know Salt can never be wrong but you always have to do some testing on the other side as well).
To get myself into running Swarm I know I had to also build something fun, after reading about Hypriot’s Raspberry Pi cluster I know I had to build my own, just for the fun of it!
There’s an excellent guide on Hypriot’s blog on how to get it running and a big thanks to the great folks at Hypriot for maintaining a ARM version of Docker.
Here’s a list of ingredient needed:
- 3 Raspberry Pi’s version 2
- D-Link DES 105 switch
- Deltaco WALLCHARGER 230V - 5V USB 48A 4XUSB (charger)
- 4 USB charger cables
- 3 0.3m CAT 6 ethernet cables
Here’s the work and end result
Let’s get going
Attacting Pi’s to switch
I now have the cluster at home for any fun side projects, right now running my blog.
