Edge storage beta

Edge storage provides object storage and Edge caching within the network. This update marks the completion of testnet benchmarking in preparation for mainnet release and testing. Storage shards files across multiple hosts, building in a high level of security in that no one host stores the complete image of a single file.

Full Open source

We are in the midst of producing a series of patent applications for the core network. This is designed to protect the core IP of the network for the benefit of the whole community, providing a barrier to entry to other organisations in the space, and in so doing promoting the Edge network as the protocol for edge computing. This is a drawn out process that has been ongoing for a long time. However we are nearing the end and expect to have filled in the coming few months. As soon as this is the case we will be able to fully open source the code base for the network.

Edge Compute Beta

Like a virtual machine, but hyper localized. Our containerized app layer enables you to distribute your applications directly to the Edge network, with a real-time distribution matrix that automatically deploys and scales based on demand.

CDN conversion to Go

The conversion of CDN to GO is all about enhancing performance and reducing the footprint of CDN within Host devices. The current build of CDN in node is some 600MB+ – a large footprint for a network app by any measure. The conversion to GO is targeting a footprint of sub 10MB.

Edge for mobile: iOS

The mobile build of Host is in heavy R&D. The concept is to enable an SDK for app developers that embeds Host within existing apps, offsetting their infrastructure costs by contributing to the network. We are also working on the build of a dedicated - and earning - app for the network.
