A decentralized federated ephemeral edge computing platform and marketplace for computing resources, in the fog.
Anyone can list and sell computing resources in the Difuon Marketplace and will be connected to those who pay for those resources.
The Difuon Network is a worldwide collection of nodes that securely and privately deliver computing resources in the Fog. The fog is closer to the data, more efficient, more flexible and less costly. A decentralized fog enables almost anyone to participate in and profit from a compute sharing economy.
"Fog computing is a system-level horizontal architecture that distributes resources and services of computing, storage, control and networking anywhere along the cloud-to-things continuum. It supports multiple industry verticals and application domains, enables services and applications to be distributed closer to the data-producing sources, and extends from the things, over the network edges, through the cloud and across multiple protocol layers."- Open Fog Consortium
Demand for data integration and analytics continues to grow at exponential rates. While the cloud has enabled IT organizations to offload the hassle and expense of proprietary IT infrastructure, the cloud is expensive, generally slower, and it concentrates the value proposition in monolithic silo’d providers.
Explosive demand growth for data integration and analytics will come from data sourced in the edge (fog): potentially trillions of mobile, IoT, web 3.0, and personal cloud devices and applications. Demand for computing infrastructure will grow. Edge-sourced data is best processed in the fog at the edge -- not the cloud. The fog will displace the cloud as the future home of data integration and analytics computing.
Difuon connects buyers and sellers of computing power and associated applications through a decentralized federated ephemeral computing platform and marketplace. Difuon is beneficially leveraging an unprecedented convergence in technology drivers that will supplant the cloud with Difuon’s fog. Difuon's business model uniquely drives an exponential growth in fog computing capacity.
Difuon’s secret sauce is its holistic, comprehensive artifical intelligence software that federates the entire process in a set it and forget solution. Our remote management capability will enable even the non-technically inclined to be fog compute providers. This will foster explosive growth in fog compute capacity as it enables anyone with spare bandwidth, space, and energy to participate.
Difuon will take the Cloud to the Fog through: 1. Consensus Engagement 2. Consesus Federation & 3. Remote Management. Difuon brings compute down from the cloud to the fog, infinitely closer to where the data is created. The 1st rule of data management: Don’t move it.
Conventional approaches to decentralized compute erroneously assume that there will be sufficient available spare compute capacity on user's personal laptops, desktops, and mobile devices. This assumption is false because most users will not put up with the inconvenience, security vulnerabilities, and privacy violations that result from running external compute jobs on their personal hardware.
Difuon addresses these problems by using dedicated hardware that minimizes inconvenience and maximizes security and privacy. Our business model incentivizes the deployment of disposable fog compute nodes that monetize spare bandwidth, space, and energy. With remote management these devices require no technical expertise by the user thereby enabling virtually anyone to participate as a producer. Our co-marketing arrangements with hardware manufacturers enable a scalable delivery model that will foster exponential growth in real compute capacity.
Conventional approaches to decentralized compute fail for many reasons. One way they fail is by not following best practices for security and privacy. Difuon is architected using what we call a diffuse trust perimeterless security model or zero-trust computing for short. Difuon uses end-to-end encryption that is signed and encrypted in motion and at rest. Difuon's ephemeral serverless compute framework runs in a trusted enclove on the dedicated devices thereby providing best practices security and privacy.
Difuon services and participates in many categories and verticals. Examples are the following but not limited only to:
