DC-API plugin will handle the individual workunits in the BOINC project, while the MetaJob plugin will enable the user to submit huge number of jobs in one turn. GBAC will enable the execution of non-registered applications in the BOINC project. You desktop grid will also be augmented with cloud resources in case it is needed. Finally, with gUSE the submission of jobs and workflows is enhanced by a graphical portal. For more details, please read the relevant descriptions and manuals.
