Strategic Goals

All companies using cloud services look for excellent performances, competitive prices, and the highest standards of privacy. Yet, no cloud provider is currently able to provide all these three benefit together. This pain point arises because the current standard of centralized cloud (i.e., one proprietary web farm serving millions of users) has huge operating costs and recurring weaknesses concerning data security.

Solutions Developed / Used

Community Cloud is a project that is developing a cloud service, which replaces the centralized server farms with a distributed data center based on a peer-to-peer network free from infrastructural costs.
