Friend Unifying Platform

The Friend Unifying Platform is a powerful open source framework that will allow developers to decouple their applications from technology silos. It will empower developers to swiftly deploy on and integrate with Ethereum and other decentralised technologies in a new blockchain based cloud infrastructure, the Friend Network – where participants share ownership over the infrastructure and get rewarded in tokens.

Friend can be described as one of the first Blockchain operating systems. It can be accessed online in a browser tab or installed natively on top of Linux, allowing users and developers to sign in with their Friend accounts online or on their notebooks offline.

The Friend Network enables secure, global access to personal virtual Friend Cloud Computers that simplify, augment and enhance the use of and access to the Ethereum blockchain for everyone that is connected to the internet. Through this cloud computer network, decentralised applications can be deployed and distributed in seconds.

Friend makes it easy to connect to diverse technologies and deploy them on the internet. It reduces development overhead by providing a functionality that covers user access, distribution, file management and much more.

Simple global deployment

Friend is a powerful platform for developers. It connects arbitrary technologies and deploys them onto the internet. It reduces development overhead by providing a framework for user, access and file management. Additionally, it offers a graphical user interface with a window manager that works on every platform that has a web browser. Here, developers can tune their environment and manage their cloud resources.

Friend lets developers connect their applications to other apps running on the network to unleash functionality never seen before. Its technology enables creation of distributed systems that allow applications to share data and functionality – code, compute, and storage – dynamically and cooperatively among two, or many, nodes to offer scale, efficiency, and truly best-of-breed features and capabilities across any work domains.

By providing virtual computer templates Friend also lets organisations deploy applications and services with zero deployment cost.
