The Cloud,  Reimagined Distributed Trusted

Build a Faster, Cheaper, Securer cloud using idle processing power in data centers and edge devices

What’s Ankr?

What’s Ankr?

Ankr is a distributed computing platform that aims to leverage idle computing resources in data centers and edge devices. What Ankr enables is a Sharing Economy model where enterprises and consumers can monetize their spare computing capacities from their devices, on-premise servers, private cloud and even public cloud. This enables Ankr to provide computing power much closer to users at a much cheaper price.

Why Ankr?

Higher Availability

Deploy from the closest computing resources available across the global

Cheaper Price

Sharing Economy’s asset-light nature
results in fairer pricing

Easier Integration

Build from the tools and languages
you already know

Securer Communication

Leverage cryptographic primitives and
TEEs to protect computation integrity

Use Cases

Ankr is versatile in various types of computing jobs.
  • 01
    Computation-heavy applications where computation offsets communications
  • 02
    Monte Carlo simulations (e.g., medical/geological research)
  • 03
    Time-sensitive signal processing offloading (e.g., rendering for AR/VR)
  • 04
    Offline data analytics without strict deadlines
