The Computational and Storage Potential of Volunteer Computing - 2006

The Computational and Storage Potential of Volunteer Computing

Research Area:  Cloud Computing


Volunteer computing uses Internet-connected computers, volunteered by their owners, as a source of computing power and storage. This paper studies the potential capacity of volunteer computing. We analyzed measurements of over 330,000 hosts participating in a volunteer computing project. These measurements include processing power, memory, disk space, network throughput, host availability, userspecified limits on resource usage, and host churn. We show that volunteer computing can support applications that are significantly more data-intensive, or have larger memory and storage requirements, than those in current projects.
