This paper presents UnaCloud, an opportunistic Infraestructure as a Service implementation oriented to academic and research institutions, where the IaaS model is supported through the opportunistic use of idle computing resources available in the institution campus, providing researchers with significant and low cost computing capabilities. Also presented are the existing perspectives for current and future work on this project, related work about different concepts of opportunistic or volunteer cloud computing, and the significance and potential impact of this project in the regional research community.
