CrowdProcess is a distributed computing platform, that uses common web browsers as nodes. It allows for the simple and intuitive use of consumer devices for large scale distributed computing. The computing power is served through a simple to use API, and can be used through command line interface, programmatically, or even as a web app.
Computing power comes from browsers, which can come from one of two sources:
1. An institution leverages its existing infrastructure, by running jobs on the browsers present on its intranet (private case), 2. A developer can also use browsers connected to the platform across the internet (public case).
In the private case, CrowdProcess allows for the full leveraging of the existing resources. This allows for highly private and secure computing behind the firewall, without the need to ship sensitive data outside the premises, or install and maintain expensive clusters.
