Fedora Nightlife Project Harnesses Idle Computer Power

Bryan Che, part of the project management team at Red Hat, started a new project at Fedora this week called Nightlife. Based on the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Condor Project, Nightlife will give people the ability "to donate idle capacity from their own computers to an open, general-purpose Fedora-run grid for processing socially beneficial work and scientific research that requires access to large amounts of computing power."

Che says he hopes Nightlife will eventually help to build over a million nodes at Fedora, but there are a few things that need to happen first -- mainly to determine what the requirements will be to run on Nightlife.
