Autonomous IT drives the ThreeFold Network. It is reliable, secure, decentralized (scalable), sustainable, and versatile, enabling the handling of any IT workload. It is self-driving, self-healing, and requires minimal human intervention.
Autonomous IT is the building block for a new era of IT. Edge cloud computing, blockchain, IoT, 5G, Open Source, & DApps prove decentralization is happening. A decentralized grid of autonomous IT that lives on the edge is therefore needed to scale current IT workloads and support future ones. Further, it can provide solutions to the problems of digital monopolies, growing inequalities, and the loss of autonomy within our societies.
To our knowledge, we are the first to deliver a truly decentralized and autonomous solution.
ThreeFold Grid is an alternative to centralized cloud providers – a global, neutral, and sustainable network of autonomous storage and compute Internet capacity created by ThreeFold Farmers, with more than 40,000,000 GB and 15,000 cores existing today. Any application which can run on Linux can run on the ThreeFold Grid but with more privacy, security, closer to the end-user, and at a much lower cost.
Network Role: The Foundation / The Highway
ThreeFold Token (TFT) is a decentralized digital currency used to buy autonomous and decentralized Internet services (compute, storage, applications) – generated only when active capacity is added to the ThreeFold Grid.
Network Role: The Medium of Exchange
3Bot is a primary use case of what is possible on top of the ThreeFold Grid, and acts as your digital assistant. It can perform many tasks such as help you reserve capacity, transfer tokens, and run your workload(s) and applications. 3Bot is stateless and efficiently stores your data on the edge.
Network Role: Your Assistant
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) provides their clients in the CEEMA region the option to connect their computing and storage capacity to ThreeFold's decentralized grid.
Most HPE server and storage hardware have been certified to be used on the ThreeFold Grid and HPE plans to build services to support the growth and usage of the ThreeFold Grid.
Kleos is a 5G telecommunication technology helping ThreeFold scale to serve the last mile in connectivity.
Kleos is particularly critical in low income countries where Internet connectivity is expensive and inaccessible.
ThreeFold technology is approved to be used within the baystations they deploy.
FlowGen is a renewable energy company that applied its extensive aerodynamic know-how from the automotive racing industry into the wind industry to optimize the design of a 5-meter wind turbine. These turbines can be installed virtually anywhere without the need for high masts or deep foundations. This makes it possible to cost-effectively deliver power nearly anywhere in the world.
Together with FlowGen, ThreeFold can push Internet capacity for a fair price to the places that need it the most.
Solidaridad accelerates solutions for more sustainable and more inclusive supply chains.
They work closely with farmers and partner with companies, financial institutions, governments, service providers, and knowledge institutions around them.
ThreeFold capacity will be deployed in a pilot program for cocoa farmers in Ghana, in locations owned and operated by Solidaridad and local service providers.
We have expertise in storage, automation, and cloud. From 2000 to 2015 and through seven exits totalling $500M, before ThreeFold came to be, key stakeholders defined parts of the cloud landscape.
Some of those elements are still being actively used today.
We believe the world needs a decentralized Internet, to bring sustainable and neutral access to information and education for our generations and those to come. And we at ThreeFold are committed to providing you with complementary solutions.
Before ThreeFold saw first daylight, predecessor companies were making waves in the storage, automation, and cloud computing landscapes.
Three separate elements (Zero OS, Rivine, and JumpScale) were created and with time turned into the three core aspects of the TF Grid.
The concept of the ThreeFold Network becomes a reality, through the publication of white paper 0.9. Release of the TF Chain. First tokens are created.
The first batches of capacity are added to the TF Grid in different parts of Europe and the UAE, soon followed by the U.S. and Canada.
ThreeFold signs two major partnerships (HPE & Solidaridad) in short succession and signs on a major capacity farmer.
The ThreeFold Grid goes into beta and the first test users are taking it for a spin.
The TF Grid goes public. The ecosystem expands with the help of partners and farmers. Developers build on top of the TF Grid, growing the Autonomous Internet.
1 Billion people around the world have access to a green, fast, and affordable Internet and education solutions.
The vision of a fully decentralized and democratized Internet, for you and owned by all of us, is achieved.
