Introduction

GridRepublic is an account manager, a web site which allows BOINC volunteers to manage their participation in multiple distributed computing projects from that single site. A single login allows you to manage all computers and preferences with a clean simple point and click interface. The founder of GridRepublic was the first to suggest the creation of a system which allows for Account Managers to be created.

GridRepublic provides users an easy to install version of BOINC for Windows and Mac, but the account manager features can be used with any previously installed version of BOINC on any platform.

GridRepublic is working to raise public awareness and participation in volunteer computing with BOINC. There are many efforts being planned to bring volunteer computing with BOINC mainstream.
