What is ColonyOS?
In a rapidly digitalizing world, seamless interoperability and robust large-scale computing aren’t just luxuries—they’re essential. Yet, as we shift towards decentralized and diverse computing landscapes, developing cross-platform applications becomes a daunting task. Imagine a world where AI workloads can easily be developed and run seamlessly across any platform, including Cloud, Edge, and HPC. Welcome to ColonyOS!
ColonyOS is an open-source research project developed by RISE AB, and is used by ENCCS to foster greater High-Performance Computing (HPC) adoption. It is also used by RockSigma AB to implement a compute engine designed for seismic processing in underground mines. RockSigma AB has contributed to the development of ColonyOS.
ColonyOS is a Meta-Orchestrator, delivering functionalities like a traditional operating system, but functions as an overlay on top of existing platforms. This unique capability bridges the gap between various computing environments, enabling seamless integration and operation. ColonyOS offers a suite of features suited for heterogeneous computing landscapes.
