CNM Farms (formerly known as CNM Servers, sometimes referred as CNM Platform; hereinafter, the Farms) is The combination of computing servers and container engines that host CNM Cloud, as well as those parts of CNM Lab Farm that are provisioned to run serverless systems. The Farms provide both Worldopp Middleware and CNM apps with functionality.

Application servers

Currently, every of four existing application servers that support CNM Cloud is build on one droplet of DigitalOcean. Every of these Platform features 2 GB Memory, 50 GB Disk, and Ubuntu 18.04.2 x64.

All of those Platform are for compute. However, some need for one or more testing servers, tentatively called a fellow server, is identified. Some control servers may also be considered.

The development of the Platform can be divided in two parts -- the historical endeavors and further projects.

Historical endeavors

Main wikipage: CNM Cloud Project
Historically, the WorldOpp Fellow Staff has undertaken the endeavors to develop the Platform under the CNM Cloud Project and, as of July of 2019, Romanof has completed the overwhelming majority of that work.

Further projects

Main wikipage: CNM Servers (development)
Further projects are drafted at the CNM Servers (development) wikipage. CNM Servers (development) is the promising cloud service model of CNM Cloud that shall offer services of its ecosystem of servers and cloud OS, which is OpenStack. This infrastructure enables operations of CNM apps.
