Luxcore Announces Its Pivot Into A Decentralized Cloud Infrastructure
Luxcore emerges from stealth mode to announce and debut its latest innovation disruption, merging Internet, cloud, and blockchain technologies. On Tuesday, November 15th, 2022, Luxcore will host a global launch event, announcing its newest product and service offering for current and potential investors and members of the press. The company will reveal its decentralized cloud infrastructure (DCI) platform that leverages its long-time expertise in optical systems, chip design, and distributed, network-based, multi-level secure operating systems.

"Luxcore's decentralized cloud platform is designed to be the first cloud computing platform based on micro clouds and distributed ledger technology ("DLT"), also known today as blockchain. "Today, we are the first decentralized cloud infrastructure provider with the ability to provide managed, hosted blockchain services with cross-blockchain integration, uniquely positioning us to offer "Blockchain-as-a-Service" with an unparallel emphasis on speed and security. Ultimately, our vision is to be the "Architects of the Next Internet." And this announcement is the second major step in our journey.

Gerald Ramdeen, CEO of Luxcore

Luxcore plans to vertically integrate the entire hardware and software stack, from the network layer up through the software layer, onto a single chip that can be deployed globally wherever 5G and 6G mobile infrastructure is deployed. In addition, at the event, Luxcore will be announcing a new major strategic partnership with a Fortune 500 company, one of the industry's most respected technology service providers in cloud and blockchain technologies. This strategic partnership will allow both companies to provide secure mass data storage and transit on our Decentralized Cloud Infrastructure ("DCI") platform together as we build the next Internet for the future of finance, commerce, and mobility.

Ramdeen will unveil the DCI and "Blockchain-as-a-Service," their growth potentials, and revenue projections. This new first-of-its-kind partnership could generate $20-50 million in revenue per year beginning next year in 2023. Also, at the event, Ramdeen will be announcing Luxcore's return to the private institutional capital markets to secure institutional capital to fuel the company's expected growth.

About Luxcore
Ultimately, our vision to be the "Architects of the Next Internet" will undoubtedly be fulfilled by our ability to integrate the entire hardware and software stack vertically. From the network layer up through the software layer onto a single chip, can now be deployed globally wherever 5G and 6G mobile infrastructure is deployed, resulting in significantly lower infrastructure costs and energy savings.

Decentralized Data Solutions Startup Oort Launches Edge Network to Scale Web3 Infrastructure

Oort | November 08, 2022

Oort (formerly Computecoin) is kicking off its in-house edge network, Oort Decentralized Edge Network (DEN), which aims to radically augment the scalability of Web3 infrastructure and pave the way for massive Web3 dApp deployment. Oort DEN will allow developers to easily scale applications on Web3 infrastructure without compromising reliability, latency, and durability. Oort is building its edge network to address the most pressing pain points facing Web3 infrastructure today. "One of the biggest challenges faced by decentralized storage service providers is scalability in terms of the number of users and tasks. "The scalability problem gives rise to other issues, like latency, reliability, and the lack of essential features like google-type file searching. When decentralized storage service providers struggle to meet the industry's scalability needs, it's hard for them to compete with traditional, centralized services. Our job at Oort is to solve these problems by drastically improving Web3 infrastructure's scalability." Dr. Max Li, Founder and CEO of Oort Decentralized networks' nature of limited scalability dictates that most dApps built on those networks cannot provide Web2-comparable user experiences. As a result, dApps today still rely on centralized infrastructures like AWS. Oort DEN strives to help Web3 developers improve their dApps' performance by providing a collection of key functionalities such as SQL database, dynamic resource allocation (storage, compute, and bandwidth), fast file indexing and searching, and content distribution, all decentralized for internet-level scalability. "With our targeted positioning and product-oriented strategy," Dr. Li continued, "Oort aims to onboard billions of Web2 users to Web3 applications and services. We at Oort envision a future where Web3 is widely adopted and used by everyone. That's why we're committed to pushing the limits of what's possible; we want to make this vision a reality." Oort DEN will comprise a large number of Oort's edge node devices (called "Deimos") deployed worldwide. Deimos devices will perform all DEN functionalities at the edge, enabling massive adoption of Web3 applications. Oort is now seeking ecosystem partners to manufacture and distribute Deimos. All ecosystem partners will be carefully reviewed and selected by the Oort Foundation to guarantee the stability and security of the network. About Oort Oort (formerly Computecoin) is a data infrastructure for the next billion Web3 users. Featuring a user-centric design, Oort offers full-service decentralized data solutions that developers and users can quickly master without knowing a thing about Web3.

DigitalOcean Announces New Data Center in Sydney

DigitalOcean | November 16, 2022

DigitalOcean Holdings, Inc., the cloud for developers, startups and SMBs, today announced it is expanding its global presence with a new data center in Sydney, Australia (SYD1). This new facility will better support DigitalOcean’s current and prospective customers who are based in or have end-users in Australia and New Zealand. Sydney is the ninth global region to house a DigitalOcean data center and the fifteenth facility overall. The SYD1 data center features the most up-to-date network architecture and is connected to DigitalOcean's private internet edge and backbone network, providing 400 Gbps of on-net access to Asia, North America, and Europe. This reduces dependency on public internet and, as a result, mitigates jitter, latency and packet loss for users. All equipment has redundant network and power connections that can route traffic smartly in case of unexpected failures, making for a reliable and secure experience. “With hundreds of thousands of current customers using our global network today, we’re excited to expand the breadth and capability of our infrastructure to better serve small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers in Australia, New Zealand and the surrounding region. “This state-of-the-art data center will provide low-latency connectivity and our IaaS and PaaS productivity tools for startup businesses and SMBs in these important, rapidly growing markets.” DigitalOcean CEO, Yancey Spruill The cloud computing market in Australia is expected to grow 12.5% by 2025, with cloud spending by SMBs expected to grow marginally faster than enterprise organizations. The strong and growing technology business landscape in Australia and in particular Sydney, coupled with the telecommunications connectivity options, including submarine communications cables connecting directly to the United States and Asia, made Sydney an ideal choice for the next DigitalOcean data center. “This new data center was built with our small business customer’s needs in mind,” said Gabe Monroy, Chief Product Officer at DigitalOcean. “Scalability, availability, and security have been top priorities for our customers and were baked into this build, ensuring that end customers always have a great and secure experience.” The Sydney facility will provide direct connectivity to the market and improve the overall experience of end customers utilizing applications hosted on the DigitalOcean platform. SYD1 will also provide seamless peering with hyperscalers, making a multi-cloud strategy simple for SMBs and startups who utilize more than one cloud provider. Beginning today, users can deploy droplets, spin up DigitalOcean Kubernetes clusters, provision a managed database, or utilize any other DigitalOcean product from the SYD1 region. About DigitalOcean DigitalOcean simplifies cloud computing so builders can spend more time creating software that changes the world. With its mission-critical infrastructure and fully managed offerings, DigitalOcean helps developers, startups and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) rapidly build, deploy and scale applications to accelerate innovation and increase productivity and agility.
