Madoop: Improving Browser-Based Volunteer Computing Based on Modern Web Technologies
Browser-based volunteer computing (BBVC) is one of the distributed computing paradigms, attracting researchers’ and developers’ attention for its portability and extraordinary potential of computing power. However, BBVC still has two significant challenges: low programmability and performance. These challenges are a heavy burden for users and prevent BBVC from wide-spreading. In this paper, we propose a novel BBVC framework to solve the challenges by using MapReduce and WebAssembly. Our framework reduces the total execution time by 64% compared with a traditional BBVC mechanism. We also show a practical scenario and its performance.
