HOW DOES IT WORK?
In contrast to how most of the world understands current computing methods, our XCFrontier technology powered by XContent, is based on the concept of “Centralised Computing”. This provides an input medium for the end-user and allows the processing to take place in a datacentre. Decentralised computing is efficient in LAN based environments, where the server is relatively close to the end-user computer but this becomes more of a problem when one starts engaging with cloud-based computing. This is pronounced when you look at PaaS (Platform as a Service), where that specific server is often located many kilometres from the end-user device.
XCFrontier by default requires a scalable and powerful server in the datacentre that will take over the processing side of the smaller end-user computing device. This server will handle all the clients processing requirements and will allow the end-user, no matter where they are situated, the ability to provide input and receive information back. This method of computing provides many benefits. One of these is lower bandwidth utilisation due to the fact that only a small amount of input and output data is passed through to the server and back to
The data displayed is nothing more than an image pixilation change which is more secure since you communicate constantly in a compressed and encrypted 168-bit 3DES DataStream. This does not happen in most decentralized computing processes. Since this DataStream is already compressed and
encrypted, we do not require a VPN tunnel, which in a decentralized computing environment, is critical.
Additional benefits include:
– simpler administration of the end-user environment, where we utilise our own
in-memory desktop sharing solution (similar to applications like TeamViewer)
– centralised storage of documents and other data
– with cloud services such as Azure, we can provide Scale Sets with High Availability and dynamic extreme processing solutions at no extra cost
– decreased PaaS and localised data-centre server costs
Below is a breakdown of our requirements for the technology:
XCFrontier Base Server requirements need the following server specification:
Operating System and back-end (Base System, no Users)

– 4 Cores
– 8 GB Ram
– 256 GB SSD OS drive (no storage)
– 1 TB for Storage (if required)- OneDrive sync, etc.
– Gigabit Network Card
