Why Participate?

End-user Benefits

If you are an end-user (an engineer, a researcher, or in charge of IT infrastructure) this experiment provides you an environment where you can discover benefits of having more computation power. 

  • Fully guided process, from first contact to final delivery of results, through a carefully assigned expert who deeply understands your application and the process of executing it.
  • A large variety of data privacy, computing architecture and software package options available through specialized providers which are participating in the experiment.
  • The resources and services are offered free of charge through donations of our providers.
