Commoning practices
applied to cloud infrastructure

A collaborative developer platform and an ecosystem of shared knowledge, expertise and compute resources.

collaborative cloud

The ecosystem

Creometry is a socio-technical ecosystem that applies commoning1 practices to computing infrastructure (aka. the cloud2).

In the spirit of commoning, we believe in sharing resources and sharing rewards. The ecosystem brings web3-style incentives and open-source cloud software together, to foster and govern digital commmunities.

Contributors to the ecosystem earn rewards3 for published courses and workshops on the academy, contributed code to incubated projects, and for shared compute resources.

In summary, Creometry's ecosytem is:

  • Academy: a technology training ground for developers and teams.
  • Vessel: a space where developers meet opportunities and contribute to project initiatives.
  • Cloud: community-networked kubernetes clusters capable of handling diverse workloads.
creometry academy


Learn. Share. Grow.

The Academy is your platform to learn new skills and share knowledge.

  • Self-paced courses 

    Work through trainings paths at your own pace, and get exposed to some of the skills you need to become certified.

  • Publish 

    Community members can publish courses and workshops, contributing to the collective learning experience.

  • Instructor-led sessions :

    Focus on modern technologies with a hands-on approach to prepare you for real world production senarios.

Build. Contribute. Collaborate.

Experience the benefits of DevOps in a collaborative environment

  • Build & iterate 

    Build or deploy containerized apps, iterate from source repositories with GitOps, and find collaborators or early adopters among your community. See platform features.

  • Create & Contribute 

    Initiate a community project and explore collaboration opportunities within a community of like-minded developers.

  • Metrics-based compensations 

    Host a Kubernetes worker node, a node pool or a regional control plane, and receive compensations based on aggregated node metrics. Review Incentives in docs.

  • Contribution-based compensations 

    Contribute academy content or code to earn rewards, to build a track record and explore growth opportunities.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Commoning is a practice of collaborating and sharing to meet everyday needs and achieve well-being, of individuals, communities and lived-in environments. Learn more

  • “The cloud is just someone else's computers”, racked in multiple data centers distributed around the globe. However, Creometry's cloud infrastructure is a network of distributed servers, contributed by community members as shared and/or pooled compute resources to orchestrate application workloads.

  • While creometry incentives metaphorize between cloud mining and virtual-currency mining, creometry network itself is not a blockchain network, it does not store distributed ledgers, and processes all incentives through a centralized cloud service before submitting transactions to the smart contract.

    It is worth mentioning that creometry does not support and will never initate any form of financial campaigns such as "ICO", "IEO", "STO", etc. The ecosystem supports a unique "crypto-token" serving only as compensations for contributions. Review incentives in docs

  • Creometry allows you to run containers as kubernetes deployments and jobs, with planned support for multi-regional deployments and multiple container runtimes (containerd, WASM and Confidential container runtimes). Review supported workloads in docs.

  • Creometry is built for dervelopers who have limited access to public clouds, due to reasons ranging from low funding opportunities to currency exchange controls, which severely limits access to cloud resources.

    Creometry's cloud platform is also a good fit for individuals and teams, startups and enterprises, researchers and consultants, students and freelancers, alike; as long as they are interested in low-cost Kubernetes environments, or in leveraging the incentive system to receive early feedbacks. Review use-cases.

  • Creometry provides developers with the option to run confidential containers, which isolate workloads and verify their integrity, in addtion to encrypting traffic and data. Although the number of discovered vultnerabilities is manageably small, we do not recommend running critical workloads or compute sensitive data on Creometry's network. Review Terms of use and example use-cases.

  • Whether it's a cloud-based VM, a single board computer, a workstation, or an on-prem hardware, you can join any compute hardware as long as it runs on a architecture/OS supported by Kubernetes nodes (i.e. Linux/Windows AMD64, Linux arm64, etc.). Review host requirements in docs.
