Here’s how Hypernet is recreating distributed computing…

By April 27, 2018 No Comments

Behind all the tech advances we enjoy in modern life is an insatiable need for computing power.

The more computational power available, the faster we can develop solutions to the most important challenges we face as a society. The ability to process oceans of data provides the necessary foundation for the discovery of a cure for cancer, the possibility of a driverless commuting future, and the development of the means to combat climate change.

​Data Centers Can’t Keep Up

​The hub-and-spoke data center model can’t keep up with the demands of the pace of modern technological advancement. Data centers take too long to build, cost too much, and can’t handle the volume of data sent their way. This is why so much attention is now trained on distributed computing.

We are surrounded by computers that — most of the time — carry extra capacity. If we could efficiently tap into all of this unused power, we’d be able to solve big problems faster, and we wouldn’t have to depend on mega-corporations building inefficient, insecure, centralized structures.

How the Hypernet Tech Stack is changing Distributed Computing

​To be viable, distributed computing has some major challenges to overcome. What do you do when one computer drops off the network? How do you determine which computers work on processing which data? The Hypernet team has taken a hard look at each of these questions and spent years researching and developing unique solutions.

Hypernet’s distinctive features:

True, Scalable Parallel Computing: Traditional data centers are inherently limited in the amount of computational power they can offer. Hypernet’s ground breaking algorithms can run all classes of problems in parallel across an infinitely scalable network, and it is not limited by the cost and time it takes to build new data centers.

Resilience: By uniting the power of blockchain technology with our Distributed Average Consensus (DAC) algorithm, Hypernet makes it simple and efficient to tap into idle computational power by providing the gateway to the billions of devices that already exist in the world.

The technology behind Hypernet allows for the efficient distribution of compute jobs, manages the turnaround of nodes dropping on and off the network, and creates a secure marketplace where computational buyers and sellers can engage with confidence. Hypernet has the capability to reach true exascale computing, thanks to the power and resilience of our proprietary DAC algorithm.

Speed and Cost: Hypernet has massive speed capabilities because any application can run in parallel across an unlimited number of computational nodes. As a marketplace, Hypernet also cuts out the middlemen corporate giants, like Amazon and Google, and connects consumers of computational power directly with an enormous network of distributed devices at a low cost.
