Desktop Grid Computing and Applications
Desktop Grids can be volunteer Desktop Grids, collecting computer capacity from tens-of-thousands of PCs at home or local Desktop Grids consisting of otherwise unused machines inside a university or institute. International Desktop Grid Federation brings together various Desktop Grid technologies such as BOINC, OurGrid, XtremWeb, Condor and IDGF communities such as SZTAKI Desktop Grid, and Rechenkraft.
To provide practical knowledge and hands-on experience on:
- Scientists and Application Developers looking for ways to use more computing power.
