AtticusRift posted a topic in TECHNOLOGY TALKThe Boosteroid project team reached agreements to place computing facilities in the free industrial zones of Georgia. According to the agreements, after computing facilities are installed, they will be connected to the local power grid and high-speed Internet. Currently, there are two free industrial zones (FIZ) in Georgia located in Poti and Kutaisi. Negotiations with their management are held by the CEO of the project Boosteroid Ivan Shvaichenko. “We will soon decide where to place our first computing facilities. Currently we also negotiate with the representatives of Iceland on the possible placement of computing facilities there”, — CEO of the project. Centralization of the computing facilities will provide the competitive price of cloud computing (in case of decentralization the costs increase a lot), make cloud computing sustainable, ensure information security and compatibility in components operation. “Nowadays the primecost of cloud computing 80% depends on the electricity tariffs. A big data processing center can get a substantial quantity discount off the price (for instance, in Georgia the price of 1kWh/hour is only 0,04-0,08 $, and 0,06 $ in average). One computation node based on eight graphic cards together with collateral system (in proportion to one node) needs 3,5 kWh/hour. Thus, our primecost of one hour computing power rent on one computation node is not higher than 0,4-0,5 $. Market prices for the same computing power in Europe are following: Google – 6,5 $, Amazon and Microsoft – 10,5 $“, —Boosteroid founder. It is planned to create a centralized cloud computing platform within the frame of the Boosteroid project (Google cloud, Amazon WS, Microsoft Azure analogue) Boosteroid will allow to abandon expensive personal computers in favor of a powerful computing “cloud” with a user-friendly interface and a simple management. A PC is able to carry out a variety of tasks in the “cloud” – from working with texts to analyzing DNA. Thank to the lowest cost of rent in the market of computing power, Boosteroid will be available to every user of the World Wide Web.
Modern software and high-tech equipment is what made the Boosteroid project implementation possible. Technical implementation of Boosteroid consists of software and hardware parts. Hardware part will include a lot of heterogeneous computing systems combined into a single high-speed infrastructure: servers based on modern general-purpose Intel or AMD processors; servers, which include NVIDIA or AMD graphics accelerators and graphics cards; servers, which include Intel graphics accelerators; high-speed switching equipment. Server architecture will be based on: Intel Xeon E5, E7 v4 or 5 processors; AMD EPYC 7000 series processors; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards; NVIDIA Tesla P100, Tesla V100 and AMD Radeon Instinct graphics accelerators; Intel Xeon Phi 7000 series accelerators. A fault-tolerant, distributed, redundant storage system will be used in the Boosteroid project. Also, block-level stores are provided. In addition to the main data stores, a long-term storage with a large amount of memory will be built. 10Gb and 100Gb Ethernet switches will be used as communication equipment. They support the operation of the system infrastructure, high-speed computing network and data warehouse replication. Software part of the project will be based on the open source platform, which allows to provide a wide range of cloud services, such as computing, creating storages, databases and much more. A detailed project of creating computational power will be formed after the first ICO stage. We develop a user-friendly interface with fast and easy access to Boosteroid services for the convenience of working with the “cloud”. We are also planning to develop an application store, named BooStore, where you will be able to buy or download apps for free. Then it will be possible to install these apps on your cloud PC.
