Autonomous IT drives the ThreeFold Network. It is reliable, secure, decentralized (scalable), sustainable, and versatile, enabling the handling of any IT workload. It is self-driving, self-healing, and requires minimal human intervention.
Autonomous IT is the building block for a new era of IT. Edge cloud computing, blockchain, IoT, 5G, Open Source, & DApps prove decentralization is happening. A decentralized grid of autonomous IT that lives on the edge is therefore needed to scale current IT workloads and support future ones. Further, it can provide solutions to the problems of digital monopolies, growing inequalities, and the loss of autonomy within our societies.
The current Internet is controlled by large corporations that see users as a product. The new Internet should be responsible and democratized, protecting individual privacy, neutrality, and security.
The Internet should be inclusive to all of humanity. We are building a collectively-owned (farmers) Internet that is deployed everywhere and accessible to all, not just in datacenters or high-income countries.
The Internet is currently run by a handful of large companies who benefit financially from our data . Everyone should be able to enjoy a return for participating and sharing Internet capacity while maintaining our data privacy.
