Everywhere you look, big ideas go hungry. Titans of gaming and social media are chasing metaverses, but edge computing still can't begin to approximate the scale of their wildest dreams. After all, you can't build an infinite pastime without a ubiquitous power source.
Breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies seem relegated to those with the largest budgets. Most data scientists must pay steep premiums on compute cycles and uptime just to pursue their goals. Some cloud providers may offer reduced rates for predictable utilization—but why should innovation be constrained by predictability?
Without a more affordable cloud computing solution, the future will belong to the same people as its present.
There's a whole universe of dreamers, creators, and challengers-of-convention that simply needs a little nourishment. To deliver on all the promises of Web3, we must fundamentally change the way we compute.
Salad is facilitating innovation with plentiful, available, and entirely people-powered cloud services. If you're looking for a champion, we've got thousands.
Every commonly held idea was once an experiment.
By 2030, consumer hardware will overtake conventional data centers as the most reliable and renewable source of elastic compute.
The proof is in the PC. Leading manufacturers have already begun to optimize consumer-grade processing units to perform multiple intensive workloads at once. Meanwhile, new encryption technologies have made it possible to deploy to anonymous nodes, access machine resources, and securely extract quality data.
Combine all these ingredients, and you've got a recipe for a completely decentralized Community Cloud.
SaladCloud is a first-of-its-kind, fully people-powered alternative to conventional cloud services. Our workload-agnostic network rivals legacy providers in terms of availability and performance, and offers scalable data solutions for a fraction of the cost.
Salad currently accommodates nearly 100,000 monthly active nodes—and each one represents a voluntary contributor to the future of cloud computing.
Computesharing is our secret ingredient. On Salad's distributed network, private individuals share latent compute resources from their PCs—like processing cycles, storage, or bandwidth—in order to accomplish advanced compute tasks and earn digital rewards.
No task is too big for our infinite Kitchen.
By providing meaningful incentives to participate, Salad has become the world's most decentralized supercomputer. Since our founding in 2018, Salad users have contributed 7,400+ years of processing uptime to verifying Ethereum transactions and supporting other blockchain ecosystems.
Cryptocurrency validation informed the development of the proprietary trust rating system we now use to evaluate newly onboarded nodes, forecast resource availability, and verify trusted cohorts on SaladCloud.
We're cooking up Web3 infrastructure. Our radical new marketplace offers tech innovators a seat at the table.
SaladCloud infrastructure is workload-agnostic—meaning there's no appetite we can't address, and no workload too complex to distribute. Contact Salad's enterprise liaison to access our robust supply of shared processing resources for your next project.
Community Cloud can train massive AI models, compile data synthesis workloads, and distribute rendering tasks for medical research or climate modeling. The Salad community will opt into supporting P2P and VPN ecosystems, bootstrapping new cloud gaming servers, and linking legends to their next adventure.

The Internet may be our greatest human collaboration. Democratizing compute infrastructure could be the next chapter—but telling that story will require every voice.
Web3 forecasts a decentralized and voluntary Internet. A Power-to-People Web won't stomach user tracking, data collection, or any of this decade's other leftovers. Our goal is to help everyday people share compute resources safely, and on their own terms. We prioritize user sovereignty, security, and privacy above all else.
Sharing compute resources is valuable human effort. With billions of IoT devices already online today, it's not hard to imagine how the web could function as an interoperable mesh to power third-party compute jobs. We're proud to say that our nodes will never grant machine access without the consent of their owners.
Salad awakens the world's hardware to its potential, and connects real people to real opportunities. It's our mission to restore a spirit of equitable exchange not seen since the salad days of the web.
We're on a mission to make the Internet what it should be. For every gift we'll receive in pursuit of that endeavor, Salad must honor an equal responsibility to nourish and restore the world we share.
In order to offset the environmental impact of our network, Salad Technologies contributes a portion of our annual profits to 1% for the Planet. Through our annual Growvember donation campaign and similar initiatives, our community has helped us raised thousands more for global environmental organizations. Every human we hire also chooses a cause to feature in our storefront, so that Salad users may choose to join us in making a difference.
Salad users make thousands of individual donations every year using value earned through computesharing. Our community by our side, The Salad Kitchen has aided disaster relief, sponsored wildlife rescue efforts, and provided indispensable funds for global health initiatives—all while offsetting tons of carbon emissions to fight the effects of anthropogenic climate change.
