With the rapid growth of blockchain technology and edge computing, long-standing obstacles to the creation of decentralized rendering applications, such as high latency and high development costs, are gradually being removed. Alongside this, the metaverse industry is gathering momentum and edge computing technology, exemplified by edge rendering, is gaining broad adoption. As the new infrastructure of the metaverse, edge computing is a fundamental requirement of dApp developers and blockchain miners. In this series, we are exploring in-depth how developers and miners can obtain a decisive advantage by using the Caduceus edge rendering system.
This article discusses the advantages of building on the Caduceus blockchain, which combines hypercube technology with Docker.
Advantages of Hypercube and Docker
The planned Caduceus network upgrade to 100,000 persistent transactions per second (TPS) and the use of hypercube architecture and the Docker platform will enable the rapid deployment of metaverse applications.
Each node in the hypercube system transmits a maximum of N-1 bits of data. To broadcast to the whole hypercube network, an N-bit hypercube requires a total of two N-1 messages, and with the implementation of an N-bit hypercube network, the entire P2P network becomes controllable.
The message broadcast from a node will go through a maximum of 10 others before it reaches all nodes on the network. If the connection speed between nodes is 5 milliseconds, it will only take 10 milliseconds to reach the entire network, ensuring all nodes receive the message with a minimal number of broadcasts.
Because Caduceus uses hypercube technology, which operates with low traffic at very high speed, the network can support a greater number of rendering nodes while achieving high capacity and efficiency.
The Docker Advantage
Caduceus believes the use of Docker, which mirrors the operation of real applications, will drive widespread adoption of edge computing and edge rendering in today’s increasingly digital world, giving momentum to the meta-isation of industry.
Docker is a popular containerisation software platform that helps miners run a wide range of applications, making it faster, easier and cheaper for them to develop, deploy, monitor and run metaverse blockchain nodes.
- More efficient use of system resources
Docker uses fewer system resources and makes better use of them. Whether it is application execution speed, memory consumption or storage speed, it is more efficient than traditional virtual machine technology. As a result, a rendering system with the same configuration can frequently run a larger number of applications with Docker than it can with a virtual machine.
- Faster start up times
Traditional virtual machine technology often requires several minutes to launch application services, but Docker applications, which operate directly on the host kernel and do not require the launch of a full operating system, can start in seconds or even milliseconds. This significantly reduces development, testing, and deployment times.
2. Consistent runtime environment
A common problem during the development process is environmental inconsistency, which can prevent the discovery of bugs and defects. Docker’s image solves this by providing a complete runtime environment, excluding the kernel, ensuring consistency throughout the process.
3.Continuous delivery and deployment
By modifying application images, Docker enables developers to achieve continuous integration, delivery, and deployment. Developers can use Dockerfile to build an image and test with a continuous integration system, while the image is quickly deployed to the production environment, or even automatically with a continuous deployment system.
4. Easier migration
Docker is the perfect solution for application migration since it guarantees the consistency of the execution environment. Docker can run on many systems including physical and virtual machines, laptops, and public and private clouds, with consistent results. This makes it easy for users to migrate applications from one system to another, without concern that an application will fail to execute due to a change in operating environment.
By combining the benefits of blockchain, hypercube and edge computing technology with Docker, Caduceus is able to build an all-encompassing metaverse application ecosystem — an app store for the metaverse. And while dApp developers, miners, and users will enjoy the convenience of the app store, it will also be a powerful accelerator for the development of the metaverse.
Driven by blockchain innovation, Caduceus edge computing technology and the metaverse ecosystem will mature and grow, and the edge rendering system — capable of supporting highly customized application scenarios — will be heavily favored by developers and miners.
Caduceus is designed for developers, to enable and encourage the creation of diverse, original and exciting Web3 applications with high performance, scalability and stability, and the new metaverse app store will only enhance the developer experience, providing access to the advanced applications and tools they need to realize their vision.
