Beowulf Blockchain Files US Patent for Next-Generation Decentralized Cloud Network
The B2B decentralized cloud pioneer Beowulf Blockchain announced that they have filed a US patent for their decentralized cloud network. Beowulf Blockchain was built by combining global computing resources into a supercomputer network on the blockchain for communication services. In filing for a US patent, Beowulf endeavors to secure its mission of making customizable and affordable communication services available to businesses across all industries.
The Beowulf supercomputer was built by integrating available computing resources contributed by individuals throughout the world, also known as ‘‘network miners.’ The Beowulf SDK, meanwhile, handles all communication functions from front-end to back-end infrastructure, with businesses paying only for the minutes they use. By sharing computing resources such as PCs, laptops, servers, smart TV, etc., network miners can earn money from the network by hosting voice/video calls. Due to the nature of the telecom package relay, little CPU power is used to host a call. Therefore, the usage of miners’ computers in the Beowulf network will not significantly affect the performance of the computer or cost extra money for electricity. In fact, the mining software can run on low energy systems Raspberry PI machines or tablets.
Beowulf’s designed network offers more dynamic solutions than traditional communication networks, which generally consists of two main paradigms: the peer-to-peer (P2P) and the miner-hosted communication paradigm. In the P2P model, the caller and callee are allowed to send voice/video data directly to each other through an internet connection. In the case of the miner-hosted calling paradigm, the server is required to manage the voice/video data for caller and callee. While the P2P communication paradigm is an…
