RKN-Seal of Approval
The Rechenkraft.net Seal of Approval evaluates the quality of Distributed Computing projects. Every user has the opportunity to submit his evaluation on the official platform. Subsequently, the evaluation will be released or rejected because of a lack of objectivity. After the evaluation period has expired (usually 1 months), the seal is officially handed over to the project operator.
Evaluation takes place in 4 categories:
|Reliability||stability of the clients, server accessibility, security, automatic updates, available WUs according to the operator|
|Communication Policy||project description, email & forum support, annunciation of downtimes, fast information about errors|
|Benefit for the general public||publications , public result database|
Moreover there is an overall valuation.
