The team of the Laboratoire de l'Accélérateur Linéaire at CNRS in Orsay has launched XtremWeb-HEP 9. The release of XtremWeb-HEP 9 is a breakthrough in the world of Desktop Grid Computing. For the first time, "Big Data" applications can be deployed on a hybrid volunteer platform.
XtremWeb-HEP 9 introduces "offering and billing" mecanisms to allow the management of "charged" services. On the other hand, this version permits to deploy "Hadoop" applications.
