Abstract: While cloud computing is still a developing paradigm, many of the existing challenges point to new research trends, as resource and power saving. Current datacentres are being used more efficiently, new hardware tries to comply with energy saving and software helps to fulfil these goals. On the other hand, the resource optimisation can also be undertaken by maximising the existing resources, even if not intended for cloud purposes or have state-of-the-art hardware. This paper investigated how to integrate common desktop PCs, with a wide cardinality inside a university campus, on a cloud infrastructure to lower cost efforts, and how to deliver appropriate services to researchers. We propose a model to categorise applications, show how to build the infrastructure and present performance and consumption results.
