Launch the first distributed cloud designed for DApps
DApps are decentralised by nature – they shoud have a cloud to match. Such a tailor made place would boost productivity and revenues
Take first movers advantage in a growing economy
‘Internet of Things (IoT), High Performance Computing (HPC) and Distributed Applications are on the rise
Set a market network in motion
A one-stop-shop for decentralised computing products and services specifically tailored to an emerging decentralised economy (Iaas, Paas,Saas)
Present the new paradigm of cloud computing
Cost effective, secure and on demand. Distributed cloud computing competes with traditional centralised models
for a Decentralized Future
iEx.ec aims at providing decentralized applications (DApps) running on the blockchain a scalable, secure and easy access to the services, the data-sets and the computing resources they need.
This technology relies on the Ethereum smart contracts and allows building a virtual Cloud infrastructure that provides high-performance computing services on demand.

These technologies are being used to build and improve eScience computing infrastructures, allowing scientists to execute the most demanding applications, like CERN for instance. The team has published over 80 scientific papers and led several EU and Chinese projects, which altogether received more than €1M in grants. iEx.ec was founded in 2016 and since then the core team has rapidly expanded to include blockchain hackers, business developers and PR specialists.

In 2000, we published the seminal paper : XtremWeb, a Global P2P Computing Platform. XtremWeb and BOINC have paved the way for research on using PCs from the Internet to execute highly demanding applications at the fraction of the cost of a supercomputer. This paper as well as its sequels gained an estimated success in the scientific world: more than 1500 citations measured by Google Scholar, for several years on the top 5 most cited paper from the FGCS journal (IF: 2.4)
November 2002, we introduced MPICH-V, a fault tolerant MPI for volatile nodes at the Supercomputing conference. In this work, we showed for the first time that it was possible to execute safely parallel communicating applications on machines distributed on the Internet. Interestingly, this result opened new areas of research around resilience for supercomputers that are still being explored today for exascale machines.
We won the Best Paper Award at the European conference on Parallel Processing for characterizing errors when computing errors of Internet resources and evaluating the result certification strategies. Indeed, consensus is needed not only because some users cheat, but also because disks fail!
We collaborated for many years with Dr. D. Anderson, (Univ. Berkeley) around BOINC and Volunteer computing. We’re fans of GridCoin also!
Our core technology, XtremWeb-HEP has been developed at the French National Institute for Research on Nuclear and Particle Physics. The institute is strongly involved in many international Big Science experiments, such as the Large Hadron Collider or the ITER fusion reactor. We’re proud to work with people who are pushing every day the limits of human knowledge.
Since many years we have been working with many industrial partners, either collaborating on scientific issues, either providing them proof-of-concepts for radical new solutions of getting more competitive High Performance Computing solutions. This gave us a deep understanding of enterprises’ requirements in terms of security, dependability, usability, and business models.
At the Supercomputing conference in 2008, we introduced BitDew, the first middleware for Big Data computing on Internet resources. Till now, this software has many advanced unmatched features. BitDew is a key technology asset for the iEx.ec distributed Cloud.
From 2007 to 2012, with many partners from all over Europe we established the International Desktop Grid Infrastructure. This is a world wide unique experience of building a distributed computing infrastructure of node distributed on the Internet to provide scientists an affordable mean for executing a wide range of scientific applications.
We introduced for the first time iEx.ec to the Ethereum community at Devcon 2.
iEx.ec presence in China. It is our pride to be accelerated by the SEM X-elerator at the prestigious Tsinghua University in Beijing. And we received in March the Innovation Team Award. Standing on shoulders of giants !
iEx.ec is a spin-off company from INRIA, the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science created in October 2016. Its headquarters are located in Lyon, France. Founders are also affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences. iEx.ec received financial support from the French National Research Agency in the scope the ANR CloudPower Emergence program.
iEx.ec was present at the SuperComputing, SC16, conference November 14-18, Salt-Lake City, on the Inria booth.
We showcased our first demo of iEx.ec. iEx.ec is a fully distributed and blockchain based cloud computing platform. It allows distributed applications running on the blockchain (Dapps) to access the off chain computing resources needed for their execution. It relies on the blockchain to organized a distributed market network for applications, servers and data-sets.
The iEx.ec project leaded by INRIA and the Stimergy start-up in France are proud to announce, for the first time in history, the provisioning of a distributed data-center through a smart contract deployed on the Ethereum blockchain. The Stimergy company, located in Grenoble, France is designing servers that have this very particular thing that the heat produced by the processors is scavanged to warm water. Hence, those servers are called data furnaces. Data furnace are typically located in the basement of a building and the water is warmed before being distributed in the building. Similar servers are being deployed in several locations in France, including at the Butte-aux-cailles public swimming pool in Paris.
