On Configurability of Distributed Volunteer-Based Computing in the Comcute System

The chapter proposes additional solutions that can be implemented within the Comcute system to increase its configurability. This refers to configuration of the reliability level in the W and S server layers, static or on-the-fly data partitioning and integration, configuration of the system for processing in the data streaming fashion, extending the system for selection of a project that the client wants to contribute to, ease of migration of legacy codes to the system. Finally, an example of a legacy distributed application for monitoring client locations and resource usage is presented with suggestions on its migration to the Comcute system environment.
