DADI: Decentralized Architecture for a Democratic Internet
What is DADI?
DADI is a decentralized global platform that offers cloud services, computing power, content delivery, database storage and many other functionalities that can enable you to scale and grow your business. It is based in the United Kingdom (UK). Unlike other platforms, DADI seeks to have all the services decentralized enabling the relevant stakeholders to have access and control hence creating a more democratic environment.
A democratized market place will significantly reduce the costs of operations. Developers project a 90% reduction on operating costs of business that will operate on the DADI platform. It will also provide enhanced security as it will be operating on the Ethereum blockchain.
There are companies that are already using DADI’s technology. These companies include What Car?, Monocle, Empire, Virgin Limited Edition, and Lifestyle.one.
This technology can be utilized for various functions and services. They include:
- Content manipulation and distribution
- Always-on products
- Content and publishing platforms
- Apps: tablet and mobile
- Cost-sensitive products
- Subscription services
- Content classification
- Big data
- User experiences with machine learning
- Customer relationship management
The platform utilizes smart contracts to provide its services. A smart contract is a computer program that facilitates the performance and negotiation of a contract on a digital platform. It is powered by the blockchain technology. Smart contracts allows parties to enter into and agreement without having to involve the services of a third party.
This system sets the rules and penalties that underpin a given contract. The participants of any particular contract must adhere to those rules or pay the penalties.
DADI also utilizes the fog computing structure. In this system, a pool of decentralized devices is all connected to the internet. There is no one single machine that controls computing resource distribution. It uses a computing system run by a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). This system eliminates the need to pay an advance fee for monopolized and private cloud computing platforms.
Another technology DADI utilizes is microservices architecture. This architecture provides a series of intelligent apps that are useful for building digital products.
DADI technology simplifies the grueling task of having to create an API and the need to scale every time the demand grows. In this case, the only concern is the data. The platform will feature DADI API. It is also available anytime you need it to assist you in scaling automatically when the demand increases.
It will also utilize GRPC, a technology used to distribute procedures across multiple hosts.
The Zookeeper is a peer-to-peer technology that will enable node communication. It will also allow distributed synchronization.
As long as your digital product is powered by web services, you will be in a position to build on DADI’s platform and scale your business to greater heights. Those with powerful machines at home will have a chance of generating passive income by sharing their computing power for a fee.
