Northvale, NJ, April 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Web technology startup Darkfibers Networks, Inc. has unveiled KarmaServe.com, a new web hosting platform that puts its unused server power to charitable use. KarmaServe.com aims to distinguish itself from the myriad of hosting companies in the industry with a unique sales pitch: Support of the company enables resource contributions to distributed computing projects that allow scientists to study some of humanity’s most vexing diseases.
One such computing project is the famous Folding@Home, which runs computationally intensive computer simulations using the collective effort of millions of smaller computers. These models are used by scientists to study Alzheimer's, Huntington's, Parkinson's, and many cancers.
KarmaServe.com clients can be assured that the computational power devoted to the cause does not interfere with or restrict use of customer equipment. “Our unallocated equipment contributes to these projects until they are leased,” explains Michael S. Rosenberg, Project Manager at KarmaServe.com. “Customers then have the option to contribute using their leased assets, and can claim a discount on their bill if they so choose.”
Many hosting companies keep their reserve hardware sitting powered on and idle, which wastes power and does nothing to ensure a customer is receiving equipment that has been adequately stress-tested.
More distributed projects are expected to be added in the future, and KarmaServe.com is accepting comments and suggestions to improve its service.
