About

Have you ever thought about how many computers are connected to the internet at a given moment? It is currently estimated that this number oscillates around 2 billion (that's 2.000.000.000 - that's right: a two and nine zeroes). Have you ever tried to imagine the computing power of this electronic swarm? If we moderately assume that each computer has the power of 10 GFLOPs (that's less than the first version of Intel Core 2 Duo), then the total computing power of the Internet could be estimated at 20.000.000.000 GFLOPs, i.e., 20.000 petaFLOPs or 20 exaFLOPs! How much is that? As of June 2011, the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world combine for 58.9 petaFLOPS of computing power. This means that our modest estimate of the Internet's computing power is nearly 170 times greater than that. Just how great would it be to harness all that power and make it work for the benefit of the mankind? Help find cure for AIDS and other lethal diseases, discover extraterrestial lifeforms, fathom the mysteries of quantum physics... It is possible. Almost anyone who owns a computer can contribute to a computational project of their choosing. Just register with us and follow the three steps described below.

Registration - the first step to distributed computing.

REGISTER

Registration - the first step to distributed computing. Start from registering on our site. Just go to our registration page, pick a username, password and enter your e-mail address. It will only cost you a moment of your time.

Download client - the second step to distributed computing.

DOWNLOAD CLIENT

Download client - the second step to distributed computing. To be able to participate in computation projects you have to install client software. We are using the proven BOINC client that you may find on our download page. Once you start the client, choose the "use project manager" option and enter the the url of our site (http://infernonet.com) in the dialog box. You will then be asked for the credentials, i.e. your e-mail address and password. Just type the same ones that you used to register on our site.

Pick projects and compute - the third step to distributed computing

PICK PROJECTS AND COMPUTE

Pick projects and compute - the third step to distributed computing Once you have the client software up and running, just pick a project (or projects) that you would like donate your cpu cycles to and you are done! The client software will pick that up in a short while and start processing tasks sent by the project server. Once a task is completed, the client software will send the result to the project server for validation. Validation may take a couple of hours or days, depending on the status and policy of the project, as well as its current workload. When the validation is complete, you will be granted credit, which will be reflected on our site.
