Openmesh is a full-stack, decentralized data cloud infrastructure built on a global network of bare metal servers. It is the largest open data lake, covering approximately 80% of the entire crypto and web3 ecosystem today. Openmesh enables anyone to create their own decentralized data cloud, connect globally, share data securely, slash deployment costs, and automate data cloud setup. The Openmesh Network is designed to collect, store, process, stream, and provide data connectivity for anyone, anywhere, anytime, without the need for registration, licensing, or payments. Think of Openmesh as the internet's open data fabric. It grants universal access and prevents interferences created by regulators, governments, corporations, and even its own creators. The possibilities are endless.
Today a handful of corporations control 90% of the world's data and IT infrastructure and we are expected to trust them. This is not just bad for business; it's bad for everyone. Information asymmetry has led to social inequality, scandals, polarization, and corruption. Sometimes, it has even led to war. Centralized data control acts as a potential chokepoint for innovation, raises privacy concerns, and creates a bottleneck for the free flow of data.
We envision a world where data is open, decentralized, and beneficial to everyone, not just a select few. This isn't solely about technology but rather about shaping the next 10-20 years of the internet, preserving democracy, and ensuring a free flow of information for generations to come.
Our Core Principles
- Decentralized Infrastructure as a Foundation: The Core Principles of Openmesh, by design, have no single authority that can alter its data, control how the information is distributed, or decide who can see what and when.
- Local Interconnectivity: We focus on enabling direct communication between neighboring nodes, optimizing data routing, file sharing, reducing latency, and improving the efficiency of data sharing.
- Accessibility for All: Openmesh data is easily accessible to everyone, anywhere, without the need for registration, KYC, licensing, or payments, regardless of location, background, or technical expertise.
- Higher Transparency: All technology, operations, and financials, including salaries and infrastructure costs, are public. Data is securely hashed and openly logged. We invite community involvement in our openly shared roadmap and progress.
- Redundancy and Reliability in Network Design: Maintaining the network with multiple data pathways and nodes enhances resilience and ensures continuous data accessibility amidst potential disruptions.
- Self-Healing Systems: We prioritize a network capable of automatically adjusting and recovering from changes, ensuring ongoing operation and efficiency without the need for constant human intervention.
- Continuous Improvements for Scalability: The network will continue to improve to accommodate growth and diverse data types, ensuring it remains responsive to evolving demands. This is the most difficult and impactful long-term goal.
- Community Governance: We believe in a network governed by its community of users, developers, and stakeholders. Decision-making processes are designed to be democratic, aligning with the best interests of the network's health and longevity.
