PocketCluster will soon be available after fixing few bugs. Please contact @stkim1 or join the slack channel for further detail.
PocketCluster builds a BigData cluster on OSX with Raspberry PI 2 or Vagrant. Compare pros and cons side by side and choose the best possible one for your need.
|Vagrant (3 Nodes)||Raspberry PI 2 (up-to 6 Nodes)|
|Apache Spark||1.5.2||RN 1.5.2|
|Apache Hadoop||2.4.0||RN 2.4.0|
Vagrant Cluster (3 Nodes)
At least 3GB memory, 9GB disk space required. (A Mac with at least 8 GB Memory configuration is strongly recommended.)
Make sure remote login service is enabled, and install the following pre-requisites. Copy PocketCluster into Application folder. Make sure your internet connection is solid. Then you are all set to go.
Raspbery PI 2 Cluster (Up to 6-Nodes)
A Mac with 4 GB Memory configuration works ok. Only *Raspberry PI 2* is supported at this point.
RPI2 cluster requires an Ethernet connection. If PocketCluster runs on a Macbook, you’d need an Ethernet Adapter. (iMac, Mac mini, and Mac Pro do not need an adapter.)
- Make sure all the RPI2s are behind the same router as the Mac is.
- Download the RPI2 ubuntu image below, and bake the image into an SD Card (at least 8 GB SD Card recommended). Everything you’d need is already installed and configured. Slide the baked SD cards into RPI2 slots, and power up RPI2s.
Raspberry PI 2 Ubuntu 14.04 image for PocketCluster
- ApplePi-Baker 1.81 (SD Card baking utility for OSX.)
- Make sure remote login service is enabled just for you.
- Install the following pre-requisites.
- Java 1.8
- Copy PocketCluster into Application folder. Make sure your internet connection is solid. You are good to go then.
