So think of it this way:

1) The cluster is my own local network where I develop and test the next version/iteration of spreadcoin/servicenodes.

2) Once I am confident that the next version behaves as expected I will release that version for the actual testnet (you guys!)

3) If this works out well too, we can switch the version to mainnet.

Voila.

If I had half your smarts I would build a time machine!  ;D

Indeed, that will suck ass!  :o

Although I haven't received all 48 raspberries yet (and all the stuff needed with it).
But I can now start building the case and work on the software. :-)

Ok - so you can tackle it in pieces.  Much better!

Those are the plexiglas plates (25 x 12 cm) that will be placed in the case.



Each plate will hold 3 raspberries.
You'll be able to slide the plates in and out.

And here's the 48-port switch:





First tests show that it works great.

D-Link DES-1210-52

http://us.dlink.com/products/business-solutions/48-port-fast-ethernet-websmart-switch-including-2-gigabit-base-t-and-2-gigabit-combo-base-tsfp/

BTW, it's actually a 52 port, not just a 48, but I don't care about the additional 4 lol...

Wait, how is that going to work when each node needs it's own IP (WAN) address?

You have a Class-C block at home or something?

Any P2P network can work in a local network too (with local IPs), why do you assume it requires WAN?

I'm pretty sure local blockchains are tested and run right now in some universities and corporations somewhere on the globe.

communicate with Peers with the outside world?

or keep it internal only?

The plan is only internal, that's why I need many nodes.

It's basically sand-boxed, but gives me the possibility to see and record EVERYTHING that happens.  8)

It is actually possible for such local nodes to all connect with the outside world, but they will all have the same external IP, and will have to use different ports.
But that's not what I am aiming at.
(Also, my internet router would probably have a hard time handling 48 nodes that all want to connect with the outside world at the same time.)

So yes, local network only.

Thanks, it's what I do. (lol)

BTW, I'm in the workshop right now, so I am not able to read Slack.
But I didn't forget you, ... will contact you over the rest of the weekend.

This is how I will arrange 3 raspberrys on each of the 16 plexiglas plates (so that the least amount of space is used)

Will the plexiglas plates stand off from each other with the posts or is their slats that they will go into?

I was thinking - why not just using a large number of virtual machines?
