Abstract

In this paper, we discuss how Peer-to-Peer data distribution techniques can be adapted to Desktop Grid computing environments, particularly to the BOINC platform. In this paper, we discuss how Peer-to-Peer data distribution techniques can be adapted to Desktop Grid computing environments, particularly to the BOINC platform. To date, Desktop Grid systems have focused primarily on utilizing spare CPU cycles, yet have neglected to take advantage of client network capabilities. Leveraging client bandwidth will not only benefit current projects by lowering their overheads but also will facilitate Desktop Grid adoption by data-heavy applications. We propose two approaches to Peer-to-Peer data sharing that could be adapted for volunteer computing platforms: the highly successful BitTorrent protocol and a secure and customizable Peer-to-Peer data center approach.
