The Computational and Storage Potential of Volunteer Computing


Volunteer computing uses connected computers, volunteered by their owners, as a source of computing power and storage.

The main idea of the paper is the research to what extent volunteer computing useful for more demanding applications. For this purpose authors studied the resources in the SETI@home host pool and the various factors that limits their use.

Mainly authors measured SETI@home case and BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing). BOINC is a middleware system for volunteer computing. To be a volunteer client should install the BOINC, which will periodically scan our system and send the data to the server.

Also there is a failure trace archive for the SETI@home.
