In this paper we show how we applied BitTorrent data distribution techniques to the BOINC middleware. Our goal was to decentralize BOINC's data model to take advantage of client network capabilities. To achieve this, we developed a prototype that adds BitTorrent functionality for task distribution and conducted small- scale tests of the environment. Additionally, we measured the impact of the BitTorrent components in both the BOINC client and server, and compared it with the original… Expand
