We are re-envisioning the very concept of cloud. We are building a cloud on top of dozens of independent
hosts' servers. They compete against each other for pricing, uptime, and internet connectivity. The result:
A huge variety of available locations, the lowest costs, and the best incident response times in the industry.
Onboarding customers starting August 2022
We interview prospective hosts to ensure they are reliable and trustworthy. Then, they install our software and set prices.
You'll be able to browse all available servers from and compare historical uptime, hardware specifications, and location to select the one that best suits your needs.
Once you've selected your server, our software will instantly orchestrate your VMs. In our testing scenarios, we've seen deployments as low as 30 seconds. Run your workloads confidently, knowing that you've selected a reliable host.

|GeForce 3060 Ti||$0.17|
|GeForce 3060 / 2080 Ti||$0.15|
No. Hosts need to sign data protection agreements, and given the nature of deployments being virtual machines and not containers, it will be very hard for them to see the actual contents of your virtual machine. We will also eventually add encrypted VM disks, which will make it almost impossible for hosts to look at your data. That being said, if you are concerned about data, grab one of our enterprise-ready Core Cloud servers.
Operating GPU servers for TensorDock can be profitable. A 5 kW full rack with 1 gbps (we can make an
intro) will cost under $1k/month and as low as $700/month depending on the location. That is to
say, operating costs are as low as $0.20/kWh at a data center. A 3090 consumes about 400 watts with the
system factored in, or about $60 per month. A 3090 costs about $1k right now. That means, if it
is rented for just $160/month after marketplace fees, the host will get their initial investment paid
back in just a year!
The math is a bit more complex, but in short, hosting servers for TensorDock can be very profitable, even though ~$200/month 3090s would be a fraction of what you'd pay at other clouds.
We withhold payouts and ban hosts that do not boot back up their machines after a downtime. This is to ensure that hosts will not pull their servers from our marketplace to serve higher-paying workloads that they may find. Given our penalties and the fact that hosts will be banned forever, this is extremely unlikely. Still, this situation would be possible — that's why regularly making backups is so important.
Hosts with good uptime and no data loss will eventually be given "Top Host" badges so that they'll be
featured more prominently. "Top Hosts" will typically have redundant power, a multi-homed network, etc.
As such, it will be extremely unlikely that these hosts go down. If you are concerned about uptime,
select a host that has proven uptime.
When a server does go down, the host will receive a notification, and we'll be in contact. You can also follow up with us directly via our support channels. You will not be charged for the time the server is down, and you'll receive a bit of account credit as compensation as well. Once the server is back up, you'll be back up too :)
As of July 2022
We're led by ex-cloud engineers to build the cloud of the future, and we're going to do it with you.
As companies scale, marginal costs rise. We're here to unite the independent hosts of the world — the ones who have the lowest costs by sourcing hardware locally and being lean — and place them together on a single, intuitive marketplace to provide the compute that rivals the big clouds but at a fraction of the cost.
We're always receptive to feedback, just contact us!
