GPU : a Gnutella Processing Unit - Distributed Computing over P2P
GPU : a Gnutella Processing Unit - Distributed Computing over P2P: "GPU is a Gnutella client that allows users to share files and CPU-resources. Our objective is to develop a robust framework for distributed computing based on the peer-to-peer network Gnutella. Through GPU, we hope to support peaceful, open and free research through supercomputing. The CPU-time sharing system does not recognize privileges between users. Each person agrees to provide network resources as needed and in return is able to get CPU-cycles from other clients on the network system. Currently, this client allows sharing of music files and some basic computations. Certain plug-ins extend the capabilities of client nodes and are compiled so as to take advantage of the power of the latest processors."
