What Is BOINC:
The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is an open source middleware system for volunteer and grid computing. It was originally developed to support the SETI@home project before it became useful as a platform for other distributed applications in areas as diverse as mathematics, medicine, molecular biology, climatology, and astrophysics. The intent of BOINC is to make it possible for researchers to tap into the enormous processing power of personal computers around the world.
BOINC has been developed by a team based at the Space Sciences Laboratory (SSL) at the University of California, Berkeley led by David Anderson, who also leads SETI@home. As a high performance distributed computing platform, BOINC has about 596,224 active computers (hosts) worldwide processing on average 9.2 petaFLOPS as of March 2013. There are suggestions to preinstall it on new computers, but with the choice to turn it off. This would fast generate an large calculating cloude, faster then any supercomputer. *Wikipedia*
* Lets have fun and enjoy helping to make our planet a better place to live!
* We can help each other to understand BOINC projects, work units, badges and how to maximize GPU projects!
