BOINC stands for Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing

BOINC is the future of distributed computing. It is an open-source framework pioneered by the UC Berkeley Space Sciences Lab. The BOINC platform will be able to serve many future DC projects (such as AstroPulse and SETI@Home II). The beauty of BOINC is that it is not limited to one specific project or sponsor - any organization will be able to create their own project to run on the platform. The client will have many advanced features built right in, such as work unit caching, the capability to split processor time between projects, and progress monitoring utilities. Please stay tuned for the latest updates and news relating to BOINC.
