Parallella 3 Year Anniversary

It has now been 3 years since we launched the Parallella project on Kickstarter with the lofty goal of “democratizing access to parallel computing”.  Starting with a clunky prototype and an understaffed team in 2012, Parallella has come a long but as the saying goes: “the proof is in the pudding”. This post shares some of the stuff in the Parallella pudding.

The Parallella is making a difference and the project is gaining momentum. A big thank you to all for doing your part to make this happen!

A happy and peaceful 2016 to all .

Best wishes,


ps. As a small thank you to those of you made Parallella a possibility, we are dropping prices to $99 for the Desktop and $75 for the Microserver version until December 24th on Amazon. (US only)

We ended up raising close to $1M in 30 days and successfully delivered over 6,300 boards to backers. In total we have build 20,000 Parallella boards and by most measures I would call the project a big success.
