The Friend OS
A modular, fully customizable operating system, accessible from any device – giving you access to a secure and private cloud-based virtual desktop anytime, anywhere.

DIGITAL INDEPENDENCE FOR EVERYONE.

The Friend OS leverages the computing power of the Internet to offer many of the features and functionalities of Chrome OS, Windows, Linux, Android, macOS or iOS, without the need to choose a specific hardware platform or proprietary software package. If you have a device that is connected to the Internet, you can use the Friend OS.

The Friend OS liberates you from the dependency on Big Tech: It gives you control to create, collaborate, store and share information, data and content across all your devices in a secure, private environment and access it anywhere on any device.

THE OPERATING SYSTEM OF THE INTERNET

Friend OS, a modularfully-customizable operating system accessible via any device that can support a modern web browser, or Friend’s Android and iOS apps. Friend OS leverages Internet and blockchain technologies to offer all the features of a commercial operating system, but one that gives you access to a secure and private cloud-based virtual desktop anytime, anywhere, no matter what hardware or software you use.

Friend CORE

Friend Core is Friend’s kernel. It behaves like a web server and operates as an operating system kernel for Friend applications. It also handles user sessions and resources that are available on the remote server. Friend Core is primarily written in C for speed, which allows it to handle requests on high bandwith networks with 2ms response times.

Friend Core – a co-kernel that is the central element of the Friend OS.

  • Friend Core is our super-smart, super-small and super-fast webserver with an OS inside of it.

  • Friend Core is written mainly in C and provides low-level system calls to our native applications.

  • It integrates with various file systems, provides clustering with other core instances via Friend Network and ensures secure user data storage, and much more…

An UNIFYING PLATFORM

The Unifying Platform describes all of the components of the Friend OS. It enables Friend OS users and developers to use the Internet as if it was a computer. Here, they can deploy apps and services Internet-wide.

When deploying a solution using Friend OS, developers refer to Friend as the Unifying Platform.

FRIEND NETWORK

Friend Core servers form a network between them for increased scalability, access to computing power, additional services and resources.

Friend Network can also provide an open client-side/server-side decentralized and distributed supercomputing network which allows users to share resources and form workgroups. This one is owned, run and governed by token holders, and can act as auxiliary infrastructure for businesses and organizations.

FRND TOKEN

A global network needs an immutable bookkeeping system. The FRND Token uses Blockchain technology to trace all transactions in the Friend Network. And it adds a logic layer that can be utilized to form contractual relationships between users and vendors. It allows for true decentralization of the Friend Sky Computing network.

FRIEND MARKETPLACE / APPS

The web-store where users can buy or rent services and applications to build their virtual computer.

Software applications that can be incorporated into the Friend OS via the Friend Marketplace.

FILE SYSTEM DRIVERS

Friend Core provides a file system driver API that allows developers to build support for any file system or standards-based web resource using several programming languages. A DOS driver implements basic functions for reading and writing to various remote and cloud service disks such as Dropbox, Google Drive and others.

MODULES (NODE.JS/PHP/PYTHON)

Friend Core is modular. The modules extend the system with any functionality required by applications on the server side. The modules can be written using many programming languages like Node.js, PHP, Python, Perl or Java. The modules are user and group permission sensitive, allowing for various degrees of access control. Using a highly optimized core, time to first byte (TTFB) round trips are kept to a minimum.

LIBRARIES

Some of Friend Core’s functionality is implemented as runtime linked libraries. This allows for the exchanging of pluggable libraries while Friend Core is running. This provides advantages when sandboxing and handling decentralized data flows. It also gives amazing speed to command execution.
