The research of MESCAL on desktop grids has been very active and fruitful during the evaluation period. The main achievements concern the collection and statistical exploitation of traces in volunteer computing systems and in cloud infrastructures. Such models have enabled to optimize the behavior of volunteer computing systems or to extend the scope of their applicability. Such traces have also been used in SimGrid to simulate volunteer computing systems at unprecedented scale. We can also mention the work conducted in SimGrid and which has also allowed to simulate HPC applications and platforms very accurately. Last, we should mention the continuous work on OAR and G5K, in particular on the experiment reconstructability aspect.
