(I am very new with my RPi. It just showed up yesterday! :D As such, sorry if this sounds kind of simple or misinformed)
I have seen many creations online that use 2 or more RPis to make parallel computing platforms.
The first question which needs to be answered is simply:
Is this even possible?
Now, my actual question might be a little vague, but I'll try to make it possible to give a single, solid answer:
What do I need to make two RPis function as a single computer?
Now, I suppose I could split that up into two different questions:
What hardware will I need to buy in order to make two RPis function as a single computer? (connectors, maybe a router if I make them into a sort of server farm? I'm not sure.)
What kind of software am I going to need? Will I need to use a custom OS, or will Raspbian help me with this?
I have a fair amount of programming and computer experience, but have never done anything like this before. Plus, my Google results have been rather ambiguous.
