Seattle makes the power of Cloud Computing available to everyone. It's free, community driven, open source, and provides access to computers worldwide.

Seattle operates on resources such as laptops, servers, and phones, which are donated by users and institutions. The global distribution of the Seattle network provides the ability to use it in application contexts that include cloud computing, peer-to-peer networking, ubiquitous/mobile computing, and distributed systems.

Seattle is being used to help students learn about networking and distributed systems.
