A Global Market

Opportunity

The ActiveAether architecture enables a global marketplace for computational resources where software services are deployed onto available hosting resources in direct proportion to demand.

For any individual or organization with available computing resources, unused compute on the devices you already own is now a commodity you can choose to put on a global marketplace.

The ActiveAether marketplace defines three roles: Host Provider, Software Provider, and Service Consumer.

Host Providers

Host Providers

Host Providers are responsible for describing their computational resources available for use and storing that description in a registry. The production of the descriptor is automatable and includes details such as CPU, RAM, HD space, and the types of services it can deploy.

Software Provider

Software Provider

Software Providers are responsible for writing software, describing that software’s requirements, and storing that information in a registry together with their digital signature. Software Providers are no longer required to know anything about setting up, configuring, monitoring or maintaining servers.

Service Consumer

Service Consumer

Service Consumers simply use the services they need as usual. Because software services are now addressed by what they do, not where they are (or even whether they are presently deployed), consumer agents can rely on the infrastructure to automatically provide the best service endpoint for their request.


ActiveAether + FogCoin

When deploying a new endpoint in response to demand, ActiveAether finds the best (‘best’ being definable) Host Provider capable of deploying a software service, opening up a new transaction so that the Host Provider can be compensated for their resources; when demand for a service drops or ceases completely, service endpoints are automatically undeployed, completing the transaction and releasing the Host Provider’s resources so that they may be used for other services.
