CrowdCrunch is your growth hack for achieving scale.
Crowd computing marries the benefits of peer-to-peer (p2p) systems with the established infrastructure and design principles of the cloud. With apps Powered by CrowdCrunch™, users are simultaneously hosts, acting as both client and server. Peers coordinate to perform tasks or forward data to one another or to end users, with the developer orchestrating this symphony of microservices. Incentivize peers to host services with traditional payments or discounted premium app features, and watch your users grow.
Why choose crowd over cloud? Let us count the ways...
Unlike cloud-hosted apps based on a client-server architecture, p2p networks grow in strength and efficiency as the number of users grow. This means you can simply pay to on-board new customers, since your users are simultaneously your hosts.
A decentralized approach means no single point of failure or centralized target for cyber-attacks. In fact, services hosted at the network's edge can be easily severed from the rest of the crowd to the dampen the effects of outages or DDoS attacks.
Instead of relying on a server to dole out data to each requesting client, a p2p network enlists the help of the peers themselves to forward data. This allows faster downloads while unburdening the outsourcing node.
CrowdCrunch enables content and services to be stored closer to the end user than ever before. This helps reduce network latency, which means that real-time applications, like video streaming services, are fluid, even on very low-bandwidth networks.
Give your app superpowers with offline functionality. Since peers communicate directly, your users can continue to share messages, photos, docs and more—even without Internet access—as long as they share a common network, such as a home or office LAN.
By unlocking latent potential in peer devices and leveraging their local bandwidth, developers deploying crowd-based apps can spread load across the crowd, unburdening the outsourcing node. Prepare to run planet-scale apps from your laptop.
CrowdCrunch doesn't own the computers that do your crunching, so we don't have the costs associated with traditional, cloud-based clusters. This allows us to offer a world-class product at a steep discount.
Got trust issues? Us too. As a p2p network, service-to-service communication never passes through CrowdCrunch severs. That means private messages are just that: private. No third-party cloud to trust. Let's restore privacy to the web, one app at a time.
