I’ve built a Raspberry Pi cluster and I’m using it to host my site

I’ve wanted to learn how to use a load balanced server for some time now.  I finally got around to buying more Pies so that I could build a cluster, and I’ve set up a PC as a load balancer.

Follow this link to  read the technical details about my Raspberry Pi server cluster.



It was surprisingly simple to set up.  I hope to get more Pies to add to the cluster, but for the moment, it seems powerful enough.  My server has had over 2000 visitors so far today, and pages are still loading quickly.  I wasn’t sure if such a simple cluster could handle that much traffic, but I think there’s still quite a lot of spare capacity.
