Convergent Computing

Convergent computing allows for the distribution of computing power throughout a person's local computing vicinity and devices.  For example. If you own an iPhone, you will be able to distribute your processing power to your iMac or your Mac Studio,  as well as share your combined computing power. 


What is a convergent computing model? It's a form of distributed computing, well, what's distributed computing?  I'm glad you asked.

Distributed computing as described by Wikipedia is a system whose components are located on different networked computers, which communicate and coordinate their actions by passing messages to one another from any system.[1][2] The components interact with one another in order to achieve a common goal.

However, Convergent computing allows for the distribution of computing power throughout a person's local computing vicinity and devices.  For example. If you own an iPhone, you will be able to distribute your processing power to your iMac or your Mac Studio,  as well as share your combined computing power.  When we say "Computing Power" We mean these three things:

  1. Processing Power
  2. Storage Capability
  3. Rendering Capacity (Graphic Power House)

What does this mean for me?  The more devices you own the higher your computing power will be.  Allowing for the offloading of tasks to create very extensive computing workflows.  

For example, I own an iPhone, iMac, and an iPad.

  • My iPhone has 1TB of Storage.
  • My iPad had 2TB of Storage.
  • My iMac has 1TB of Storage.

My computing power storage capacity is 4TB, convergent computing will allow for a "Pool" of these storage capacities to create a 4TB "Storage Capability".  With failback systems in place. Computing Power is like a personal blockchain.

Convergence Computing will allow an intensive task to be started on your iPhone and be "offloaded" to my iMac or if I had one, my Mac Studio.

Eventually, it will allow for cloud computing to be implemented into your "workflow" by buying something like iCloud rendering, or additional iCloud storage, or iCloud processing, depending on the workflow you require. 

However, if a person is uneasy, with using cloud services, and wants to "keep his data local, and does not seek to cloud-their-devices" he will be able to.
