The goal of the Clouds@home project is to provide guaranteed performance for computation and storage across unreliable Internet volunteered resources. To that end, the approach is to integrate techniques for resource availability prediction, virtual machines, and peer-to-peer data management.
In particular, we aim for the following:
volatile, and wide-area networks
platform such as PlanetLab or DSLlab.
The Clouds@home project is funded for four years (2009-2013) by the The French National Research Agency (ANR) under contract ANR-09-JCJC-0056-01.
