Imagine if you could turn your idle office computers, servers, and IoT devices into a supercomputer...
Imagine if these computes could be used for the greater good to help cure cancer or cure Parkinson's disease or fight cyber terrorism etc...
"Simply brilliant! My university has 30,000 computers and limited computing budgets. Now we have a supercomputer for research!"
"This platform could save the newspaper industry. Instead of pay walls, subscribers pay with computes. This would even eliminate the need for advertisements!"
"I love the idea that we can burst into something like AWS Lambda when I need extra computing capacity!"
Computes runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.
Computes runs on any web browser or any web page via tabs or extensions.
Computes runs on AWS Lambda or Azure Functions for scaling cores on-demand.
Computes turns your datacenter and workstations into a supercomputer.
These three components are inter-connected and can share Memory, Storage, and Messaging as you would expect from a globaly distributed supercomputer!
Computes can also run as a Lambda-like or Functions-like "serverless" platform using your own distributed machines rather than relying on a cloud infrastructure like AWS or Azure or Google. We leverage idle CPUs in your existing infrastructure but you can also choose to leverage AWS Lambda or Azure Functions or Google Functions as your Computes cores.
Peter Levine, a16z partner, explains how computes are moving from the cloud to the edge of the network. Watch video.
Leveraging IPFS pubsub, we can now deploy computes.io in a decentralized and distrubuted edge computing arhictecture with or without the Internet in a highly responsive and light weight deployment - even without the need of blockchain technologies!
