Decentralized Mesh Computing
Companies have been embracing cloud computing for nearly a decade but it’s currently being disrupted by the Internet of Things (IoT) phenomenon. Analysts are predicting that there will be 75 billion internet connected devices by 2025. The cloud was not designed for massive sensor data uploads nor was it designed for low-latency, real-time communications.
The demand for consuming and interacting with live streaming IoT data along with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies are now driving a massive shift away from the cloud to edge computing. Every company is now trying to figure out how to accommodate this shift and still support their cloud initiatives.
At the same time, there is a massive blockchain revolution underway. Not only is this driving decentralized computing but it’s also driving decentralized web discussions and decentralized app (DApp) development.
The convergence of these three drastically different computing models (cloud, edge, and decentralized) may sound overwhelming but with great challenges come great opportunities. More details on this phenomenon covered in our Rise of the Mesh Computer post.
Computes’ nanocore runs on every operating system (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS) as well as cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, and Softlayer — even web browsers! These nanocores automatically self-organize to form a private mesh network capable of requesting computations and performing computations collectively as a single computer!
The “magic” of our platform exists in our decentralized, blockless ledger technology called “Q”. We create a secure DAG (directed acyclic graph) based network for managing computing tasks and input/output files. Our files are accessible via IPFS (or Filecoin in the future). Each nanocore node parallelizes itself across all available CPU cores and GPUs to add to the overall computing power of the new software-defined supercomputer.
There is no infrastructure required to deploy computes’ nanocores in your organization or job site. Computes can even run on existing IoT devices connected to edge networks. Since Computes is decentralized, it’s fault-tolerant computing by default. In fact, there is no way to stop Computes from computing.
