Fog Computing Can Beat Amazon’s Cloud Computing Services On Price, Speed, And Convenience
Many people look at Amazon as the reference point for accessible cloud computing. However, the company maintains a centralized approach, which drives up costs and can lead to lower performance. A decentralized solution is direly needed to alleviate all of these concerns. SONM is providing this change by using decentralized fog computing to the masses.
Fog Computing Is The Future of Decentralized Computing
There are many advantages to fog computing that need to be taken into account. Any device in the world can be a part of the fog “network” and generate computing power to be used by others. Whether it is a computer, smartphone, or even a supercomputer, everything can be used to provide fog computing power. This is quite different from how Amazon provides computing services, as the company only uses proprietary servers. Moreover, the average consumer cannot contribute to Amazon’s infrastructure by any means.
With so many devices that can make up the fog network, the possibilities are virtually limitless. SONM’s fog solutions can provide calculations capable of performing CGI rendering tasks or even processing of scientific data. Those are two of the primary use cases for cloud computing as a whole. This creates a win-win situation for everyone who is part of the fog. The people supplying unused computer power can sell it to the highest bidder. On the other hand, everyone can request additional computing power on demand, regardless of their location.
To put this into perspective, the SONM network can distribute larger tasks over different computing devices all over the world. Moreover, the tasks can be completed in a matter of minutes, rather than hours or days. This is especially useful when it comes to CGI rendering, as the SONM infrastructure is incredibly flexible and can scale to accommodate all needs.
Conducting a traditional CGI processing project on Amazon’s K80 NVIDIA unit would take about 10 hours to complete. Using the SONM fog network, that process can be completed in 10 minutes. This is made possible thanks to SOMM allowing customers to rent as much computing power as they need at affordable prices. Making cloud computing more efficient is of utmost importance. Moreover, SONM provides parallel computing, which is unlike all other cloud computing services in existence today.
Fog computing provides other major benefits as well. When using the services provided by Amazon, there is a question of data safety, additional expenses, and who controls the data in question. Since information is hosted on Amazon’s servers, the company retains a right to copy all data stored on their servers. Fog computing, on the other hand, does not suffer from any of these drawbacks whatsoever. There is no intermediary involved in the process of sharing and buying computing power.
Speaking of renting computing power, buyers can select any rental time or computer architecture they need for their project. Lower prices are achieved due to decentralization and no need for administrator. SONM is also quicker compared to competitors, as there are no data centers involved. In the end, the fog computing solution is more convenient for all parties involved. Plus, it creates a swath of commercial opportunities for both buyers and sellers of computing power.
