Just saw this over at evga:

Folding forum link posted by "Super Moderator" toTOW:
As some of you may know, HP has run FAH as a burn test for their Cloud solution : EOC Stats which has shed light on the private beta testing of their service.

I’ve been following this beta testing with HP representatives and it looks like they had a great response from the folding community resulting in a significant number of applications to their beta program.

Unfortunately, this situation went out of control, and folder usage is stealing too much resources from other use case of the cloud system.

As a result, HP will no longer accept applications from folders until their service exit public beta and they start charging for it. Please spread the word to the community at your respective team forums.

HP is also reducing the resources allowed to their beta tester on February, 27th. If you are running folding clients on the cloud, please exit it nicely with –oneunit flag so that the FAH project won’t suffer from WU losses before terminating your instances.

Thanks for your understanding.


I hope everyone made good use of it while it was available!

A few people ruined it for the rest of us.

How so? Were some people just running way to many instances?

I think that some people were having multiple accounts and running as many instances as they were allowed on each of the two VMs they were given per account (2x 8 core & 1x 4 core -or- 5x 4 core times two VMs per account, times as many accounts as each individual has). I know that there were at least a few people that had more than one account that were posting about it (nobody that I saw was from here, that I recall).

I am still running on HPCS, but only have one VM folding 2x8 + 4 cores. I was just going to start up the second VM on my account when I saw that you posted this message. Hmmm... wish I hadn't seen it sometimes :twisted:

took me quite a while, but I finally got around to getting my HPCS folding back up. It's not new, so it should be fine.
