To introduce the technology behind the iEx.ec Blockchain-based Distributed Cloud, this article presents the iEx.ec network virtualization, written by Oleg Lodygensky.
iEx.ec belongs to the well known paradigm of global computing platforms that implement a three tier architecture, where a set of centralized services are instantiated and reachable through an Internet connection by decentralized services: the “client” and the “worker”.
The client, on the one hand, offers the needed interface that permits users to interact with the platform; using the client, one can easily register applications as shown in the next sections. The worker, on another hand, aggregates volunteer IT resources to run applications that process end user data.
