This presentation presents the first complete, integrated and end-to-end solution for ad hoc cloud computing environments. Ad hoc clouds harvest resources from existing sporadically available, non-exclusive (i.e. primarily used for some other purpose) and unreliable infrastructures. In this presentation we discuss the problems ad hoc cloud computing solves and outline our architecture which is based on BOINC.
We should all congratulate Gary on completing his corrections and on managing remote production of his thesis, "Ad hoc Cloud Computing", while in California, interning at Apple. It demonstrates the remarkable power of the Internet to arrange action at a distance! His thesis is now available here and should be read.
