The AI revolution is unleashing a data tsunami, with global data production estimated to grow by over 100%+ annually in the foreseeable future.

However, existing cloud data solutions and infrastructure are not equipped to cope with this explosive growth. They suffer from excessive centralization, isolated silos, vendor lock-in, and management complexities. Change is imperative.

Introducing Cere: Decentralized Data Clusters for the AI era, secured by the Cere Blockchain Protocol

Cere clusters are specifically designed to distribute data load, enhance processing speeds, and reduce latency by operating closer to the data source (such as your car, watch, or local merchants). They will also conduct automated data operations, including seamless AI inference at the edge.

As our first data cluster is already in closed beta, we invite all data/Web3/AI enthusiasts to find out more about our upcoming plans, establish your own node to earn cloud data revenue, or deploy your $CERE tokens to shape the protocol's future.

The Cere Decentralized Data Cloud ☁️

Although everything is moving to the cloud, the current landscape is dominated by centralized, siloed, and vendor-dependent data solutions provided by Big Tech. These cloud solutions not only raise concerns about monopolies but also hinder the realization of AI's full potential.

As a tidal wave of data approaches, with 90% of the world's data having emerged within the past two years, the current infrastructure will not be able to support this accelerating growth. A substantial portion of global data will need to be gathered and maintained at the edge, in locations much nearer to users & businesses. Much closer than where big data centers of Google, Amazon or Microsoft can ever be.

This shift in how we store data is possible using distributed clusters that can automate processes such as encryption, decryption, filtering, labeling, analysis, and enhanced interactions with AI agents, all seamlessly integrated.

Since its launch in 2019, the Cere team has consistently anticipated the difficulties that the present systems would encounter, now highlighted by the swift advancements of AI and the accompanying surge in data. With companies using multiple vendors causing data fragmentation that complicates AI integration, Cere is presenting itself as an objective, open-source solution, with a clear vision:

All data should be decentralized. Unequivocally.

To underwrite how we always stayed true to this vision while building out the ecosystem, you can revisit our Vision papers (1.0 - 2020 and 2.0 - 2022)

Decentralized Data Clusters : Powering the Future of Data

Cere Decentralized Data Clusters offer a distributed data cloud, to be used by any self-organizing group of nodes. These nodes can execute various data operations, whether general or specific, across continents or localized to a particular region. The need for such adaptability arises from the distinct operations and economic factors in various industries and locations.

  1. Protocol & $CERE token: Central to this decentralized approach is the Cere Protocol and the $CERE token. They are instrumental in powering self-organizing decentralized data clusters around the world. This is achieved through advanced features like automated smart contract governance, real-time network monitoring, and strict SLA adherence. Such a design ensures a high standard of security and utility for these data clusters.
  2. Separation of Cloud Infra & Operations: The tools and services offered by Cere ensure a clean separation of cloud infrastructure & operations from the protocol. This unique separation allows specialized data to reside on the edge, while also ensuring seamless integration and interoperability through the Cere L1 Blockchain and smart contracts.
  3. New Open Data Standard: A significant advancement offered by the protocol is in establishing a new open data standard. This innovative paradigm takes various data processes such as storage, streaming, enrichment, and analysis, and decentralizes them to the edge. Such a move prepares the data ecosystem for a future dominated by autonomous data patterns.
  4. Optimization for Data Types & Regions: The flexibility of the Cere ecosystem becomes evident when looking at cluster designs. Clusters can be optimized for specific data types and regions. As an illustration, one cluster might focus on large binary objects for video streaming in Central Asia, bypassing app stores or geo-restrictions. Conversely, another might cater to rapid transactional data services via a concentrated network of low-latency nodes in New Zealand.

By championing these features and ensuring a clear division of roles within the ecosystem, Cere ensures that all stakeholders benefit from their contributions, be it through data validation, staking, or reward distribution.

The Decentralized Data Cloud (DDC) welcomes everyone to submit their participation proposal, and when approved by the community, empowers them to run their own storage node, CDN node, or even their own cluster. By actively engaging, contributors not only sustain the DDC ecosystem but also represent a commitment to a secure future driven by AI, with data as the medium and $CERE, facilitated by the Cere Protocol, as the catalyst.
