core client for the BOINC distributed computing infrastructure
juju deploy cs:~brunopereira81/oneiric/boinc-client-0
The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a
software platform for distributed computing: several initiatives of
various scientific disciplines all compete for the idle time of
desktop computers. The developers' web site at the University of
Berkeley serves as a common portal to the otherwise independently run
projects. This package contains the BOINC core client program that is
required to participate in any project that uses BOINC. A central
server distributes work units and collects results via this client.
When attaching a local machine to a project, this client will also
dynamically download the projects application's program to be then
wrapped by the BOINC core client.
