⭐ Good Practice Description

The ThreeFold Grid is an endlessly scalable global cloud infrastructure that provides unmatched levels of privacy and security. With powerful compute, storage and network features, this next-generation cloud environment was designed to meet the requirements of emerging decentralized edge workloads. Anything that runs on Linux can be hosted natively on ThreeFold via smart contract including cloud alternatives, blockchains, IoT networks, decentralized organizations and applications.

Success Factors

Business Success

ThreeFold Grid is growing at a double-digit rate, with country-level projects increasing. This is because ThreeFold Grid enables the establishment of peer-to-peer networks at different levels – at the community level, regional level, country level, and global level, depending on the defined scope. Another key area of growth is partner adoption.

Governance and Organizational Structure

ThreeFold Tech has created an independent peer-to-peer network in which every organisation can participate, has added its own resources to the grid, and is being compensated for it.
