CloudCase - A Raspberry Pi cluster in a briefcase


Demonstrating how  cluster computing or the Cloud works is difficult, isn't it? It's all somewhere out there, isn't it? Well, it was. Thanks to the new Raspberry Pi credit size computer we can now build a fully functional Cloud system in a briefcase. We can carry it around to workshops and meetings just to tell about the workings of the XtreemFS Cloud file system, only by means of this CloudCase.

XtreemFS is a Cloud file system, designed to be distributed over many computers. The description of a file is separated from the file content itself, and XtreemFS can maintain several copies of the file data. What if the computer fails or is unreachable? No worries, XtreemFS just gets the data from another copy. Sounds complicated? Well, we can show it if we take our CloudCase.
