What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralized networks offer many benefits over the more conventional centralized networks and even distributed ones, including increased system reliability, scale and privacy. One of the most important benefits of decentralized networks management is the fact that there is no real single point of failure.

i think that this is France data center

good application.
i am not fan of data centers but ok.

Lets agree to disagree for that quote :smiley:
free world? hm…that doesn’t exist

Great bandwidth and I like your answers to the final questions. You’ve got my vote.

Good application here. :+1: you have my vote

We can also host a server with in own small DC. :upside_down_face:

Thank you. :wink:

Thank you. :relaxed:
