Why wont HP let me test their HPCS? - Page 2

Not likely, IMO. And definitely not an abuse of the system. All they want is to push the Cloud to it's limits. And CPU wise, folding will do just that.
I actually received a new access code just last week and I have plenty of instances already folding.

Now if folks don't reduce the memory usage per the new guidelines I would say that's an abuse and will eventually lead to some curbs.

Not exactly. They already pushed the cloud to its limits using folding. What they are looking for now is diversity in the use cases and workloads:

From the "share the cloud" email:
it’s time to grow and diversify our private beta participation. As someone already familiar with HP Cloud Services, we’re seeking your help in selecting new participants whose compute and object storage needs best match the services and offerings we are developing. Some ideal use cases are:

• Archiving and backing up data
• Serving static content for web applications
• Storing large public or private data sets like online files and media
• Testing and development
• Complex, multi-tier deployments


From the "new usage requirement" email:
we will be limiting private beta users to 20GB of RAM total for all instances within an availability zone.We are implementing these limits during the free private beta to accommodate a wider variety of private beta customers. Greater diversity in our private beta phase will help us plan for the massive scalability we intend to offer over time in public beta.

I know a couple of people who signed up back at the first wave of accounts, and still haven't got any. So it's just bad luck. :(

Ya I think adding something like this would help. Although in most of my applications I said that I wanted to experiement with relational databases in the cloud and never heard back. I really think they have stricter criteria to make sure people dont get duplicate accounts

I got an account. I listed the company I work for, which is completely unrelated to tech. And then filled in I wanted to try storage, and testing.

So if you put in experimenting with storage and testing. You may get a 20gb ram max account.

Ya I think that is probably a good way to do it. I just feel bad with misleading them. As I see it they have been good to us and the beta period is a time for them to test things out and they have no doubt had plenty of experimentation with max CPU load and cooling provided by folding

I also stated "Distributed Computing" If I can get good PPD for a good monthly price, im willing to pay.

Same waiting to see their prices. Would not mind paying for it but it depends how much. the electricity and heat of folding on both computers presents some problems. Especially with summer comming

heh it's a business so don't expect to see any "reasonable" prices from this kind of performance.

Ya we will see I guess. Amazons prices are crazy insane though I hope they are not similar. I would be able to pay for my rig in a month or two if I rented it out for what they are charging
