Cloud Hosting

A new infrastructure for a P2P web. Cloud hosting powering peer to peer apps.

The Infrastructure of a Distributed Web for Everyone

The world needs a reboot—and shifting the current power differential between individuals and organizations is a critical part of that. But building a new world requires bridging into the future while using the foundations that exist in the current world.

We’re building:

  • a world where people own their identity and control their data and privacy;
  • a world where communities create together with technologies and patterns that maximise individual, social, and environmental well-being.

How is Cloud Hosting with Holo Different?

Holo does to cloud hosting what Airbnb did to hotels—anyone can become a host by turning their computer into a source of revenue and getting paid in HoloFuel for hosting distributed applications. The Holo software runs in the background, allocating spare storage and processing power to serve peer-to-peer (P2P) apps to the legacy web. Hosts​ set their own hosting prices, set preferences for types of P2P apps to host, and manage their own priorities.

How People Use Cloud Hosting

In today’s world, all of our information technology needs computing power and data storage. Holo hosting is a practical rebuild of the infrastructure and services needed for a free, open, and distributed Internet.

Hosts: People rent their excess compute power and data storage, and get paid in HoloFuel.
Distributed Apps: App creators use those computers to serve next generation P2P crypto apps to users.
App users: Own their identity, control their data, and build the economy they want.
