-We'​re ​mainly interested in the scalability of distributed algorithms/​mechanisms and in the design of fault-tolerant protocols. In other words, the CPU speed is not our main concern, but the number of interconnected devices is. Therefore, for our specific use cases a large number of cheap and slow devices ​is preferable to a small number of powerful ones.+We were mainly interested in the scalability of distributed algorithms/​mechanisms and in the design of fault-tolerant protocols.
