I just returned from my summer vacation and can finally state: another summer is over. But wonderful summer it was! I finally graduated and got a Master's degree in computer science. I cycled a lot and upgraded my MTB skills. I read lot of fiction. And somewhere between work, sports reading and sleeping was Kaylee, a distributed and volunteer in-browser computing framework.
Do you have a wast amount of data to be analyzed? Are you deciphering a life-and-death matter e-mail? Do you have a smart algorithm to find the question with the known "42" answer? Do you have computing resources to do any of it? If the answer to the last question is "No! :(" then Kaylee is the right solution.
With Kaylee you are able to distribute the computation between millions of Internet users and they even don't have to know that! This is how it works:
- A user opens a link / enters a web site via a modern browser.
- Kaylee is started in background.
- The application and the data are downloaded from the server.
- The application solves the given tasks.
- The results are sent back to the server.
- Getting and solving the tasks continues as long as the user stays on the page or there are no more tasks left.
The documentation is available right here.
