Lots of Cloud Credit

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, guys. I've got around $96,000 of Google Cloud Platform credit that expires next April and there's no way in hell I'm going to be able to spend it all by then.

I've only spent 4k since this past April and that was because I accidently left some huge instances on.

 

I just started a 16 CPU server folding on the team and am going to see how efficient it is.

 

If it proves to be efficient, I'll allocate 10 x 32 vCPU servers to fold continually, coming to 160 CPU's folding for cures.

 

I can probably leave those running all the way to April, and as the deadline for my credit approaches, I'll throw more servers online until I burn through all the credit.

 

Just wanted to let you know, you'll see my username 'ericvolp12' showing up on the team page pretty soon I hope.

 

Great to be part of the team :D

 

 

UPDATE: My PPD looks to be around 70k per server. I'll wait til tomorrow to make any decisive actions.

I'm creating a cluster template now so if I want to, I can roll out an automated cluster of these servers to scale when I want them to.

 

Is 70k PPD any good?

It's not real cash.

 

It has no monetary value and you can't turn it to cash without creating a business around selling it :P

You have to create a whole business around it.

 

It's really not worth it, they charge a lot for their cloud servers, at most I'd make maybe 15k and it'd take a ton of work and a year to crank it all out.

 

 

 

 

 

I'm headed to bed now, it's 5 AM here in London. See you guys tomorrow with an update!

Okay I've been staying up secretly, spinning up cloud instances.

Watch that for a day

 

I should be getting points around a rate of 8 million a week.

Noice, I wonder how far up the leaderboard you'll get by April.

Yeah, gotta wait for my numbers to stabilize before I can make any solid predictions ;)

Typically the numbers go up after they're stable it took a couple days for my 7950 and 290 to get 289k-301k constantly. Can't wait to see your PPD after a couple days.

Oh, okay. Thanks for the info :) 

Yeah, they're only CPU's tho, 256 2.5Ghz cores of Xeons.

Probably astronomically cost inefficient, but hey it's free to me.

Eh, cost efficiency doesn't matter if they're free. Its awesome that we now have an extra 256 Xeon cores on the team though.
