Cosm is a family of open distributed computing software and protocols developed in beginning in 1995 led by Adam Beberg, and currently developed by Mithral Inc. Cosm is a registered trademark of Mithral Inc.
Early work on Cosm lead to the co-founding of distributed.net which cracked multiple cryptographic and mathematical challenges beginning in 1997.
The Cosm Client-Server Software Development Kit (CS-SDK) along with experience in gathering volunteers gained from distributed.net was used as the initial software framework for the Genome@home and Folding@home projects at Stanford University in 1999. They grew to over 400,000 simultaneous machines achieving 8 PFLOPS, aiding in protein folding research. It was also used for the first several years of the eOn project.
