dolphinbox is a self-contained, portable computing cluster designed by
OlinData. It can be used to test or demonstrate distributed computing
systems, such as Kubernetes.

# Introduction

A dolphinbox consists of several Raspberry Pi's connected to each
other using standard IP networking. A small router acts as a gateway
connecting the internal network to the outside world.

Most importantly, it all fits inside a briefcase. The briefcase has an
embedded screen, keyboard and mouse for fun debugging and hacking
sessions while we're on the go at events or working together during an
[OD Friday][fridays].
