The GAVIP Grid Computing (GAVIP-GC) project is designed to give scientists another layer of freedom. The project makes possible to perform computations which demand a lot of CPU time – reducing the computational workload on GAVIP platform and opening up opportunities for heavy processing operations on volunteers computers.
GAVIP-GC allows to create a huge number of small jobs (Gaia data + code), send them to the BOINC platform and collect the results for further analysis.
GAVIP platform provides some free resources for every user which can be spend on data analysis. However, there are some use cases which not only need to read entire Gaia catalogue but also they require a lot of CPU time for computations – GAVIP-GC intends to help to fulfil this requirement by providing access to these additional free BOINC resources.
