The BOINC@TACC project is based on the Volunteer Computing (VC) model. It helps researchers in running applications from a wide range of scientific domains on laptops, desktops, tablets, or cloud-based Virtual Machines (VMs) owned by volunteers. With BOINC@TACC, students and researchers can run small high-throughput computing jobs (that is, the jobs that involve small amounts of data transfer and processing), without spending their active project allocations.
