Whatever happened to Storage@Home?

Postby divery4eyes » Sat Jan 17, 2009 2:42 am

hello people, how are we doing this fine nite?

One simple question. Is there any updates on the Storage@Home project?

No offense, but many of your questions have been asked before and answered. Have you tried using the search feature of the forum? I found these threads by searching on "compression"

Storage@Home and platforms

Postby bowman » Thu May 14, 2009 2:52 pm

Hello,

How is the progress on S@H, and more importantly (for me at least) will it be open source and/or multiplatform? Might be able to run it in virtual Linux, but if it would support Solaris in addition to Linux and Windows that would be best.

What operating systems are you guys targeting with S@H?

S@h will start with the standard Windows, Linux, and OS X. The tools it's built on are completely portable, but the compute part will be limited to what the cores support, which is unlikely to go past Win/OSX/Linux.

Okay, that's alright I suppose. Perhaps I can run it in a lightweight virtual Linux.

Is there any time frame for the first beta release?

It is very rare they will give any type of time frame on a release.

Storage@Home is very important to the Pande Group.

They are collecting massave amounts of data and need places to store it, so it is in their interest to get this up and running.
