So, for instance, your cloud computing infrastructure could be housed in a centralised data centre. This cloud computing infrastructure comprises disparate hardware, such as servers, redundant switches and routers, storage [SAN/NAS], and load balancers, among other things. In addition, it runs standard virtualisation software such as OpenStack, VMware, and Hyper-V. This is the globally recognised and used typical architecture for building private and public cloud computing infrastructure today.
Individuals and organisations who use, maintain, operate and support this cloud infrastructure know the numerous challenges and complexities. Apart from these complications, the frequent increase in license costs of the software used on the cloud computing infrastructure is a significant concern globally.
So, in other words, this standard and expensive cloud computing architecture and business model has locked itself without an easy exit, unless a new genre in technology addresses the following concerns:
- The deployed base’s complexity is increasing.
- Poor scalability
- Ineffective security
- Difficult management
- High operating expenses
- Obvious vendor lock-ins with constantly rising licence costs
- Maintaining separate multi-tiered teams/organisations to work and support
- Time-consuming fixes to problems
- Coordination with multiple vendors
To prove their efficiency in their respective parts, the new genre in technology must-have software and hardware components that are stable, trusted, and widely used globally. So you’re in a situation where you need something completely new, but that same “new” must also be charged, stable, and proven. This is a difficult-to-almost impossible situation to replicate.
Furthermore, the learning curve for adapting to this new genre should be minimal, deployment should be quick, and the ability to transition should have a short turn-around time with little or no project management. The ability to scale and manage infrastructure reliably is also critical. Finally, modern-day security breaches are also a significant source of concern.
The cost factor is the most crucial problem. In other words, having a lower cost should not mean falling for lesser features with greater complexity and higher operating and management costs. It should go beyond the concept of “you get what you pay for” to create a one-of-a-kind overall value proposition that meets the needs of small and medium-sized businesses, enterprises, and government agencies all at once. These points are difficult to satisfy in the actual world, and we may not have been aware of a suitable product or solution, let alone a “genre” so far.
One such product, technology, and solution may meet the new genre in technology for decentralised cloud computing, data centres, and IoT.
The virtual system on a chip [vSoC], a software product and technology developed by SynchroKnot, tackles some of the contradictions mentioned above and paradoxes. While the all-new vSoC has been developed and utilised internally for more than eight years, it is now ready for formal release with its vast capabilities. You may create a decentralised cloud, IoT, and data centre with the SynchroKnot vSoC software in minutes.
The vSoC can be thought of as a complete replacement for centralised cloud infrastructure, hardware, and software. So, for example, if you presently employ any of the three different components of the centralised cloud infrastructure listed below, you can easily switch to vSoC.
- Physical servers run server and desktop virtualisation software such as OpenStack, VMware, Hyper-V, RHEV, Xen, etc.
- Cisco, Juniper, and other manufacturers’ redundant physical and virtual routers and switches
- Given file and block storage [Netapp, Dell, Ceph, Gluster, and others], physical and virtual SAN/NAS
So, how do you get from three independent hardware and software infrastructures spanning diverse market sectors to a single, all-inclusive and all-exclusive virtual system on chip offering that does everything?
The short answer: install vSoC in under a minute onto a SynchroKnot-certified system on a chip [SoC] and connect them directly. It’s as easy as that because the SynchroKnot software handles everything for you.

So, how do you get from three distinct hardware and software infrastructures spanning several market sectors to a single, all-inclusive and all-exclusive virtual system on chip offering that does everything?
The quick answer is to install vSoC in under a minute onto a SynchroKnot-certified system on a chip [SoC] and link them directly. It’s as simple as that since the SynchroKnot programme handles everything for you.
Since the vSoC includes an accurate: fully-automatic [no configuration required], high-performance self-healing and mission-critical switch, with the potential to provide multi-path [layer 2] redundancy, it is possible to link the vSoCs without using excessive physical and virtual switches and routers.
Keeping up with corporate objectives is becoming increasingly difficult in the face of a progressively weakening global economy. Moreover, with relatively few possibilities accessible in the present cloud computing, data centre, and IoT domains, it is tough to conjure a positive trend targeted at revitalising your organisation’s micro-and macroeconomic dynamics.
The emerging Decentralised Cloud Computing, Data Center & IoT genre may be the most realistic and practical solutions available right now.
