Before COVID-19 hit there was already tremendous momentum behind streaming cloud computing. AS internet and wireless signals get better and better combined with AI and ML make it possible to perform computing tasks in the cloud and then stream the output to your browser or application. Now with the future of remote and WFH dynamics, many businesses and individuals will be looking to get more computing power on their home workstations, enter Fractal.
Fresh out of MassChallenge’s 2020 cohort, Co-Founder’s Philippe Noël and Ming Ying are building a platform to help bring scalable computing power to home workstations. As WFH becomes a more common part of our lives, many professionals that run computing intensive software tools on their computers are going to need access to that computing power when they need it.
Think about creatives editing 4K video or rending 3D graphics in adobe? Or developers running and compiling code in VSCode. These applications typically would need to pull massive RAM and GPU resources in order to execute what its users are trying to do. Traditionally users are locked into the computing power available on their machine, want more power? You need to upgrade your machine or buy a new one.
With Fractal, users can access RAM and GPU resources in the cloud, your computing needs are executed in the cloud and then streamed through the internet back to your application on your machine where you conduct businesses as usual. The long term advantage to utilizing cloud computing resources is the constant evolution. As better hardware comes available, cloud resource providers will upgrade their hardware and you instantly get access to these new pieces of hardware through a subscription to Fractal.
We are excited for the future of Fractal as more and more remote workers and their employers look for more computing power.
