Planetr is a decentralized network of computers owned by individuals and companies across the internet. As a cloud consumer you install and run the Planetr gateway node to be part of the network. The gateway exposes various services like compute units to run docker containers, edge proxies and zero footprint functions as a service. The gateway monitors and manages the computing capacity of the network and delegates the computing task to an available node on the network.
