CASTRO BARRERA, Harold Enrique; ROSALES ROSERO, Edgar Eduardo  and  VILLAMIZAR CANO, Mario José. Research Computational Clusters: Customizable, Efficient, Easy to use and Free. [online]. 2012, n.37, pp.13-18. ISSN 0121-4993.

This paper presents UnaGrid/UnaCloud: an opportunistic computing infrastructure solution, which provides fundamental computing resources (processing, storage and networking) on demand and at lower cost, to support academic and e-Science projects. The proposed computing infrastructure is provided through the opportunistic use of idle computing resources available in a university campus. This paper describes the architectures defined, implementations deployed and test cases. The results obtained evidence high efficiency in result generation, improving limitations of projects depending on the agile provision of large computational capabilities, including scientific and academic initiatives.

Keywords : Distributed systems; hardware; software; scientific and technological progress.
