Cambridge, UK, January 4th, 2024—Flux, a global provider of decentralized cloud infrastructure, has announced the open alpha release of its long-anticipated client application, FluxCore. The new application highlights a breakthrough in Flux’s approach to Proof of Useful Work as a critical component in addressing existing infrastructural challenges in the Tech industry.
FluxCore is built on the ideals of Proof of Useful Work to effectively maximize GPU resources by lending unused computing power to applications and projects. This will contribute massively to solving the infrastructural limitations currently faced by technologies like AI and go a long way in decentralizing supply and addressing e-waste.
This application empowers users worldwide to contribute their idle GPU machines to the FluxEdge network, positioning them for rental by customers seeking resources for high-performance applications.
In this alpha release, the main focus is dedicated to the benchmarking of hardware setups from the provider side. This comprehensive benchmarking process is pivotal in constructing a resilient database, serving as the cornerstone for informed pricing decisions on the FluxEdge Marketplace for machine rentals.
In addition FluxCore incorporates its own mining operation module, seamlessly allowing users to mine cryptocurrencies until FluxEdge is prepared to enable customers to rent these machines for practical tasks such as AI or rendering. The application can be downloaded from the leaderboard website and is currently compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems.
“This release of FluxCore tackles the longstanding scalability challenge by optimizing computing resources to meet dynamic client needs, particularly in the AI sector. It paves the way for a decentralized cloud infrastructure future, emphasizing efficiency and environmental sustainability for everyone’s benefit.”— Daniel Keller, CEO & Co-Founder, Influx Technologies Limited.
The introduction of Decentralized Flux AI Nodes is poised to reshape the AI ecosystem. Developers and enterprises can now access a more scalable and cost-effective solution for AI compute, fostering innovation and accelerating the development of cutting-edge AI applications.
FluxCore Alpha is now ready for live testing for members of the community and all interested members of the public. The live test offers the public the unique opportunity to test FluxCore’s performance under varying conditions for the first time. It will also allow the development team to gather necessary feedback and key insights essential to releasing the Beta version.
The Flux Web3 cloud is a decentralized computing service and blockchain-as-a-service solution, offering an interoperable and decentralized development environment similar to AWS or Google Cloud. Flux utilizes a native POW (Proof-of-Work) coin to power this ecosystem, providing incentives for hardware hosters, on-chain governance, and bad actor mitigation via staking requirements for running hardware. The Flux operating system runs on top of Linux to provide the network with verified and benchmarked high-availability compute power and utilizes the blockchain to ensure transparency in governance operations. Flux Cloud is the world’s largest and most decentralized cloud infrastructure.
