Easy way to manage BOINC and find new projects

anonymous's picture

I would like to bring to light GridRepublic ( to those who want to use BOINC or do use BOINC. It provides an easy way to get started and a great way to discover new projects. Its aim is to bring BOINC to the mainstream public, but is a good all around use and could use some computer and web savvy people to help accelerate their efforts. If you want to help multiple projects and/or have multiple computers running BOINC it allows you to manage what is run from the website with a single login rather than for each project having to login on separate websites to manage the details. GridRepublic is a nonprofit working in collaboration with BOINC to make joining and participating simple. Enjoy!

If you use (like me) boinc

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
