LaCOLLA middleware makes it possible for collaborators to interact using their own resources without depending on centralized regimes. By contributing their own resources, group members can organize and communicate using a federated peer-to-peer model. This lets the group function regardless of whether a member removes resources and despite network or node failures or disconnection. In turn, this capacity for self-organization, together with location transparency, lets application developers create self-sufficient applications for collaborative activity.
