SONM is a universal fog supercomputer – ethereum-based network for globally distributed computing power.
The purpose of the SONM project is to provide a safe and cost efficient way to run general purpose computing workloads from game servers to scientific calculations using a free market place.
The flexibility of the SONM platform and its multi-purposeness is knit to PoE for non-deterministic task which is a unique technology owned by SONM (Proof of Execution).
SONM provides the possibility to solve non-deterministic tasks such as following:
– Site hosting
– Game servers
– Rendering video and CGI
– Web apps
– Neural Networks projects
Fog computing implemented in SONM provides a cheaper solution than private and monopolized cloud (Amazon, Microsoft, Google Cloud, Digital Ocean, etc.) because of lower traffic expenses and no need for administration (buildings, staff, infrastructure).
