Q Blocks is a Techstars funded distributed cloud computing company.
Leveraging the power of distributed computing, we help companies get affordable supercomputing for performing complex calculations such as training Machine Learning models or performing Big data analytics or even making the next Deepfake!
Our platform can be used for High performance computing jobs such as:
Q Blocks helps Machine learning engineers and data scientists easily spin up instances on remote GPU powered workstations.
As a user, you can easily pre-configure the instances with AI frameworks such as Tensorflow, PyTorch, Keras and then run scripts using Jupyter Notebooks or CLI interface to quickly build, train and deploy AI models.
There are several advantages that you get on using Q Blocks such as:
When you select a GPU powered machine on our network, you create an instance. You can configure your instance with AI frameworks such as Tensorflow, Keras, PyTorch etc. and choose storage required in your instance.
We use Stripe Payment Gateway to securely transact on our website. You can create a Payment profile and then either add credits or select a package depending on your requirement. Packages are heavily discounted when compared to pay as you go plan.
In pay as you go plan, you are charged for every minute when your instances are active. In a package, you get specified amount of hours for which you can run an instance. Once, the credits are used, the instances are terminated.
In your dashboard, you will see Active Instances tab in the left side menu. On Active Instances page, you can see a list of all your active instances.
Along with every instance, you will see 3 action buttons that will help you to:
When you stop your instance, your data is stored in a containerized volume on the machine on which your instance was created. On restarting the instance after a while, you may have to wait before getting access to the instance as during this period the GPU machine could be allotted to some other user. But your data isn't compromised as it was stored in a volume attached with your account only.
When you terminate your instance, your data is completely deleted from the machine. So we would request that you create multiple copies of your data locally or on a cloud storage service.
We don't offer refund on the purchases. They are final and as it is.
Q Blocks helps machine learning engineers and data scientists rent out GPU systems on our network. By hosting your GPU machines on our website, you earn an amount for every hour your machine is rented on the network.
Basic requirements for a machine are:
On connecting your machine to Q Blocks network, the computer resources are aggregated and displayed on the website.
So when a user requests a GPU instance from their dashbaord, then a containerized virtual package of GPU, CPU, RAM and some storage is provided to the user. These virtual instances are created in your machine and the users will stay in their isolated virtual instances.
Thus your system will stay protected while it is used to run workloads such as Machine learning training, 3D design, Scientific simulations etc by the users on Q Blocks website.
Q Blocks is a Techstars funded Canadian Company. Techstars is a global startup accelerator that has supported innovative startups in past such as Sendgrid and Digital Ocean.
At Q Blocks, we are on a mission to build the world's biggest supercomputer by connecting 1000s of under-utilized GPU powered computing resources throughout the globe for enabling scientific research at unprecendented scale.
We want to usher the world into this new revolution of personal supercomputing. And by becoming a provider on Q Blocks, you are not just entitled to the ROI of your machine but also to propel this technology forward.
Also, since we provide containerized virtual instances to users, your machine remains safe and secure as nobody can access resources outside their container. Thus, nobody can access your data or resources other than provided by you.
Earnings are dependant on a few factors namely:
