New paper: “Designing a Runtime System for Volunteer Computing”

BOINC logoDavid P. Anderson, Carl Christensen and Bruce Allen wrote a paper about BOINC, the “Berkely Open Infrastructure For Network Computing”, a public Grid run by volunteers with a total peak-performance of about 350 TeraFLOPS.

The paper will be presented on SC06.

350 TeraFLOPS would be enough to challenge the Earth Simulator for the 10th place in Top500, if BOINC would be allowed to take part.
