Insight

Insight

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is an open- source software platform which supports distributed computing, primarily in the form of volunteer computing and desktop Grid computing. It is well suited for problems which are often described as trivially parallel. BOINC is the underlying software used by projects such as SETI@home, Einstein@Home, ClimatePrediciton.net, the World Community Grid, and many other distributed computing projects. This package installs the BOINC client software, which will allow your computer to participate in one or more BOINC projects, using your spare computer time to search for cures for diseases, model protein folding, study global warming, discover sources of gravitational waves, and many other types of scientific and mathematical research.
