Tampere University of Technology and Techila Technologies publish a Joint Research Report studying Techila Grid and BOINC technology.
The computing power of present desktops is mostly unused under general office usage. These computers can be uniﬁed into one grid, such that unused cycles can be scavenged to solve one computing task. Two software systems to build such grids are compared in this work: BOINC and Techila. These systems are critically compared through the computation of two different scientiﬁc tasks, making observations of each simultaneously.
