I have some 100 machines (the most varied setups you can think) under my control which I run BOINC for quite some time, so distributed computing isn't a news to me at all.
When I started to work with MT5 I saw I could sell my resources on the cloud, so I started, from the 30+ machines (some 100+ cpus) I put to work on the cloud just some 8 cpus get to work on the passes and it's getting me some 0.02 USD MAX per day.
Really, is this whats the cloud about? 2 cents a day?
Maybe the offer on the cloud is too big for the demand? Is that it?
