Abstract

BOINC desktop grids have been used for more than a decade for running grand challenge applications. In this chapter we show those technologies, and particularly virtualization and cloud solutions, that make BOINC desktop grids more generic and speed up the execution of existing grid-enabled parameter sweep applications without porting them to BOINC and eliminate the tail problem of volunteer BOINC systems. Furthermore, we show a technology by which institutional and public desktop grids can be created in a few minutes in clouds and used without any BOINC knowledge.
