Parallel Computations in the Volunteer–Based Comcute System
KeywordsVolunteer computing Parallel computations Scalability Reliability
The work was performed within grant “Modeling efficiency, reliability and power consumption of multilevel parallel HPC systems using CPUs and GPUs” sponsored by and covered by funds from the National Science Center in Poland based on decision no DEC-2012/07/B/ST6/01516.
We would like to thank W. Korlub for his help in the environment configuration.
