Distributed computing projects
Distributed computing projects (or volunteer or grid computing) are projects that make use of the spare computing cycles of many volunteers' computers in order to do large-scale projects which would otherwise require expensive supercomputers. Various protocols and file formats are used to store and transfer the raw projects and their finished results.
