More than 50% percent of all servers are down, for reason ?

Boinc is a victim of it's own success. It was originally envisaged to "utilise unused CPU cycles" for scientific purposes. It was never designed for dedicated farms of many machines with multiple GPU's.

It would not surprise me given 4-5 years if Boinc simply collapsed due to the various project's infrastructures not being able to, or afford to, cope with the data coming in and the demand for work going out.

Modern technology has overtaken it.
