    66== What is Seattle? == 
    7 Seattle is a platform for networking and distributed systems research. It's free, community-driven, and offers a large deployment of computers spread across the world. You can use our [http://seattlegeni.cs.washington.edu/ Seattle Clearinghouse] website to share resources with other users, or obtain resources for your own project.  Seattle operates on resources donated by users and institutions. The global distribution of the Seattle network provides the ability to use it in application contexts that include cloud computing, peer-to-peer networking, ubiquitous/mobile computing, and distributed systems.

    99Seattle runs on end-user systems in a safe and contained manner, with support for several platforms. Users install and run Seattle with minimal impact on system security and performance. Sandboxes are established on the user's computer to limit the consumption of resources such as CPU, memory, storage space, and network bandwidth. Programs are only allowed to operate inside of a sandbox, ensuring that other files and programs on the computer are kept private and safe. This allows researchers and students to safely run code without impacting performance or security.
