First, what is cloud computing? Cloud computing is simply a model that allows users and enterprises with various computing capabilities to store and process data either in a privately-owned cloud, or on a third-party server located in a data center, thus making data-accessing mechanisms more efficient and reliable. Now imagine a secured cloud platform which can easily be accessed and information can be gotten from storage easily. The afforementioned is simply what Boosteroid is about.
What is Boosteroid?
Boosteroid is a secure cloud services platform that provides convenient access to computing resources, storage, software products and other functionality. Our service will allow to abandon expensive personal computers in favor of a powerful computing “cloud” with a user-friendly interface and a simple management. A computer is able to carry out a variety of tasks in the “cloud” — from working with texts to analyzing DNA. Thanks to the lowest cost of rent on the computing power market, Boosteroid will become available to every user of the World Wide Web. Watch Introduction video here.
Today, the most urgent issue is the continuous access to modern resources that will facilitate and accelerate solutions of global problems, will allow them to be carried out worldwide and online. The answer to this question is hidden in the use of cloud computing technologies, which is becoming more and more popular every day. To date, more than 70% of the cloud computing market belongs to leading manufacturers: Amazon Web — 34%, Microsoft — 11%, IBM — 8%, Google — 5%. Prices range from $ 6.5 (Google Cloud) to $ 10.6 (Amazon Web) per hour. High prices and the difficulty in gaining access to cloud capacity led to the fact that in October 2016 work began on the project Boosteroid. Indeed cloud computing is a place worth investing because it becomes popular day by day.
The team consists of information technology and artificial intelligence professionals. Initially, they were involved in assembling computer nodes based on 6/8 NVIDIA graphics cards and Intel Xeon processors, which was used to conduct complex calculations in the field of artificial intelligence. To ensure that high-performance equipment does not stand idle, we leased it out and were engaged in crypto-currency mining.
They gained the experience and found out that due to their own architecture and constant capacity utilization, the cost of cloud computing is significantly reduced. Therefore, we will be able to provide the service at a price much lower than offered by leading market players. Budget-friendly rent will make Boosteroid available to every user of the World Wide Web.
How it works
Intel Xeon E5, E7 v4 or 5 processors;
AMD EPYC 7000 series of processors;
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card;
NVIDIA Tesla P100, Tesla V100 and AMD Radeon Instinct graphics accelerator;
Intel Xeon Phi 7000 accelerator.
For high-speed communication, 10 and 100 Gigabit switches will be used. The plans for the development of a long-term data warehouse. More accurate data on the structure of the project will be available after the 1st stage of the ICO (November 6).
What is your benefit as an investor?
Simply, Investors will enjoy the lowest price of renting computers in the cloud computing market unlike high rates all around the market. Also, there is a possibility to choose the necessary power. Majorly is the profits from selling at a higher price Currently the minimum price for computing power ranges from $ 6.5 to $ 10. Boosteroid offers the same service for only 1 BTR. It doesn’t end there, it also include unlimited time of use, the security embedded combined with the user friendly User interface which allows any user to operate easily.
The project was launched in October last year. During this time, the structure was developed and the first opportunities were launched (maximum capacity is 0.5 petaflops). After the ICO in February, it is planned to increase the load to 20 petaflops, and in May the mobile application is expected to be launched.
About Token sale and distribtuion
token is called BTR. A total of 1,000,000,000 BTRs were issued under the ERC20 standard. During the ICO, it is planned to sell 800,000,000 tokens.
Cost 1 BTR = 1 hour of operation 8 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti; 2 Intel Xeon E5 2680v4; RAM 256Gb; SSD 960Gb.
They will be used inside the system to pay for the provided computing power. On the exchange, the tokens will appear immediately after the second stage of the ICO.
ICO takes place in three stages:
The first stage: October 23 — November 6, the sale of 100 million tokens at a price of $ 0.48 to $ 0.58.
The second stage: November 27 — December 11, the sale of 300 million tokens at a price of 1.08 to 1.38 $.
The third stage: January 15 — February 15, selling 400 million tokens at a price of 1.88 to 2.78 $.
This division is caused by the fact that the service organization does not require a one-time large financial flow. Funds collected during the 1st stage will be used to purchase electricity and prepare premises; from the 2nd — purchase and installation of equipment; from the 3rd — further capacity building.
For all ICO participants there will be an available lottery with a total draw of 40 million tokens. Also 28 million tokens will be distributed to participants who invested the most money in the project at each stage of the ICO.
