Abstract

The evolution of emerging Volunteer Computing systems is placing an ever greater emphasis on the use of a loosely coupled decentralized architecture, mainly to address concerns of scalability and robustness. We propose to build the next generation Volunteer Computing systems on top of well studied Peer-to-Peer techniques to fully take advantage of its decentralized characteristic and its very large, shared data storage capacity. This paper sketches the design of such a completely decentralized and fault tolerant Volunteer Computing system by using a Peer-to-Peer based Tuple Space formed by volunteer peers. Both simulation and software prototype evaluation results show support for the propose..
