The Unstoppable Cloud
The principle behind The Unstoppable Cloud is fully sovereign cloud infrastructure that cannot be challenged or taken down by adversaries and hackers.
We envision a world where cloud computing is permissionless, sovereign, and open, where builders of the internet have greater freedom to improve the human experience.
We are Building this Future.
With 70% market share, three centralized cloud service providers dominate the cloud computing market (AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud). With the CSPs, services are inflexible and come at a high recurring cost. Companies and developers have few alternatives.
Akash is the world’s first decentralized cloud computing marketplace, leveraging 85% of underutilized cloud capacity in 8.4 million data centers. Akash enables anyone to buy and sell unused compute.
Efficient: Pay for what you need, when you need it
Flexible: Compatible with all existing cloud applications
Price Advantage: 10x lower in cost for developers; up to 4x more earnings for compute providers
Secure: Encryption at rest, run time, transit; web of trust model (PGP) through accreditation
We’re proud to partner with leading global organizations across technology and venture capital.
