Here are some list of projects that make use of Desktop Grid technology in the South-East Asian
Folding@Malaysia is a group of Malaysian based computer enthusiast that is involved with Stanford's Folding@Home distributed computing project. Xelax at Techgamer.com first created this team. It has gone through a few changes and has moved from a few forums before the forum at www.lowyat.net became our new home. The website is set up to provide a main location for team members to access useful information about the team and project, and also for new members to learn more about what we are doing.
UTP Desktop Grid
The HPC Center in UTP has been running a multilayered volunteer computing-based Genetic Algorithm (GA) architecture for solving the vehicle routing problem (VRP). The architecture consists of two stages of optimizations: the first stage of optimization is done by the lower-layer GAs running on hundreds of computers distributed throughout the campus (the Desktop grid). The upper-layer GA is running on a high-end computer (a shared-memory multicore machine). The upper-layer GA, throughout its evolutionary process, inserts randomly selected solutions (chromosomes) of the lower-layer GAs into its local population. Superior results obtained from the GA architecture shows the benefit of exploiting idle computers available in the campus to solve hard computing problems.
