Happy 2009!

Happy new year to all our readers!  2008 was a big year for Plura.  Last year we managed to accomplish a lot of things, including:

  • Proving Plura’s underlying technology and business model
  • Acquiring several affiliates, including a few very popular sites and applications
  • Getting featured on GigaOm and HackerNews
  • Growing the size of our computing power to about 50,000 nodes

2009 figures to be an equally exciting year for us.  Since we’ve been able to flesh out a lot of our business on the affiliate side, we’re going to focus more heavily on existing and future customers.  Two of our beta customers will begin full-scale use of our computing power in the next couple of months.  We also plan to start increasing awareness of Plura to other potential customers and will be exploring various markets, such as oil and gas exploration, bioinformatics, and financial modeling, in this effort.  Of course, we will also be seeking out various non-profits that are in need of computing power for research projects.  If all of this goes to plan, we’ll be looking to expand the size of our compute network to accommodate the extra demand – possibly increasing our node count to 100,000 nodes or more.

We’ll keep the blog updated with news of our progress.  We hope everyone’s new year is fruitful and prosperous!

    I think Plura is a wonderful initiative and I would like to join, but the “Contact Us” doesn’t work. When I click “Submit”, all I see is a white page without any confirmation that the message was received. I’ve tried this several times on 2 different computers, but it just didn’t work.

    Michiel – the contact form should be working now. Please try again – thanks!

    This could be totally awesome: A plura enabled metaheurisic framework, for example a genetic algorithm. Define fitness, genotype, crossover and all params and let it run an hour in the plura megabotnet… Something like this could run my experiments like in a day…

    meim – Plura works very well with genetic algorithms. If you’re interested in using us, let us know.

    I have also tried to become an affiliate via the contact form but receive a blank page with “HiArray()” on it and no confirmation that you have received my details.

    I run a very popular website and would like to monetize it with Plura. Please can someone contact me.

    Greetings! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying
    to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Many thanks!
