DeepSquare provides answers to a list of typical questions that users might ask regarding DeepSquare aspects
DeepSquare is a decentralised sustainable cloud ecosystem focused on High-Performance Computing using blockchain technology to provide world-class performance and transparency. DeepSquare delivers a decentralised High-Performance Computing as a Service (HPCaaS) platform that aims to make HPC resources more accessible and cost-effective for individuals and organisations of all sizes.
High-Performance Computing (HPC) is the use of powerful computing systems to perform complex and data-intensive calculations, simulations, and analyses. HPC systems are used in a wide range of applications, including scientific research, engineering, weather forecasting, and financial modelling.
Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services, including servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence using the cloud to offer faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of scale.
The DeepSquare platform serves as a gateway for users to access and manage HPC resources through a decentralised network of supercomputers: the DeepSquare Federated Grid. It consists of various components that work together to provide users with an efficient and powerful computing experience.
The Mondrian subnet provides a fully functional HPC environment for developers to test and deploy their applications for free. This alternative to the free credits locking mechanism offered by current cloud providers allows developers to experiment with computationally intensive workloads, streamlining their development process.
Power efficiency is essential to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and minimising the environmental impact of HPC operations. DeepSquare employs immersion cooling technology to cool its equipment, reducing the electricity needed for cooling by over 25 times compared to traditional air-cooled data centres. The system recovers up to 94% of the heat generated by computing operations, making it highly efficient. DeepSquare also employs a circular economy approach, where it recovers and sells the heat generated by computing operations, creating a valuable co-product.
