Computational resources

The following question helps you to identify your requirements and navigates you to the scenario or to the combination of tools that will most likely help you to implement your ideas.

1. What kind of computational resources would you like to utilise?

A. Volunteer resources from worldwide


Based on your answer, we assume you are planning to setup a public volunteer desktop grid site. In this case the minimal setup we recommend you is a Core setup. In this scenario, you will have a SZTAKI Desktop Grid site containing a SZTAKI-BOINC package. With the help of this package you can easily install and configure a BOINC project. Once you have the BOINC project up and running, you still have the task to customise it. You need to have your application registered in your project and find an appropriate way of generating workunits. Moreover, you will also need to have some people arranging the communication with the volunteers, but here we will sort out only the technical side of the BOINC project setup.

Before, you start implementing the Core setup, answer the questions of the next sections (Workunit generation and Application porting) as your answer may result in a more complex setup in case you can utilise some of our tools.

B. Machines owned/controlled by me/my institution


Based on your answer, we assume you are planning to setup a private desktop grid site. In this case the minimal setup we recommend you is a Basic setup. In this scenario, you will have a SZTAKI Desktop Grid site containing a SZTAKI-BOINC package combined with our 3G Bridge tool. With the help of SZTAKI-BOINC package you can easily install and configure a BOINC project, while 3G Bridge will assist you in handling jobs in various aspects. Once you have the BOINC project up and running, you still have the task to customise it. You need to have your application registered in your project and find an appropriate way of generating workunits.

Before, you start implementing the Basic setup, answer the questions of the next sections (Workunit generation and Application porting) as your answer may result in a more complex setup in case you can utilise some of our tools.

C. Resources from a cloud I have access to


Based on your answer, we assume you are planning to setup a private desktop grid site that (fully or partially) uses computational resources from a cloud you have access to. In this case the minimal setup we recommend you is a Cloud setup. In this scenario, you will have a SZTAKI Desktop Grid site containing a SZTAKI-BOINC package combined with our 3G Bridge tool. With the help of SZTAKI-BOINC package you can easily install and configure a BOINC project, while 3G Bridge will assist you in handling jobs in various aspects. We also recommend to deploy our preconfigured VM image containing a BOINC client in your cloud in order to create BOINC client instances easily. Moreover, the cloud plugin of the 3G Bridge can assist you in controlling the BOINC client instances. Once you have the Cloud setup operational, you still have the task to customise it. You need to have your application registered in your project and find an appropriate way of generating workunits.

Before, you start implementing the Cloud setup, answer the questions in the next sections (Workunit generation and Application porting) as your answer may result in a more complex setup in case you can utilise some of our tools.
