What is new in TFGrid 3.0

What is new in TFGrid 3.0

What is new compared to our TFGrid 2.x

TFChain 3.0

  • your identity and proofs/reputation on our blockchain
  • holds all info about TFGrid (nodes, farmers, …)
  • Graphql interface to be able to query the blockchain
  • Supports side chains (unlimited scalability, allow others to run their own blockchain)
  • TFT exists now also on TFChain (allows us to work around Stellar scalability issues)
  • bridge between TFT on Stellar and TFT on TFChain (one way to start)

Provisioning

  • Blockchain based provisioning
    • TFChain API (javascript, golang, vlang)
    • supports Infrastructure as Code: IAC framework (Terraform, Helm, Kubernetes, Ansible*)
  • Use RMB = peer2peer secure Reliable Message Bus to communicate with Zero-OS
  • Support for Terraform is new

(*): planned Q4 2021

Billing

  • resource utilisation is captured and calculated on hourly basis
  • resource utilisation stored in TFChain
  • automatic discount system: pricing is in line with amount of TFT you have in your account.
    • E.g. if you have 12 months worth of TFT in your account in relation to the last hour used capacity you get 40% discount, 36 months results in 60% discount. This automatic discount system rewards users who pre-purchased their cloud needs.

UI

  • updated explorer UI, nicer and easier to use
  • uses Graphql layer of TFChain

Features not in TFGrid 3.0 yet

  • TFT 3.0 minting not on TFChain yet
  • We are enabling our company in CH (Zug) to have easier TFT buy/sell process

Nice to have features for future

They are not crucial to start using the grid, they are nice to have extensions

  • 3Bot and eVDC needs to be ported to TFGrid 3 (Sept-Oct 2021)
  • webgateway with TCPRouter concept needs to be ported to TFGrid 3 (Q4 2021)
  • Ansible IAC is for v3.1
