How does the Engine Cloud work?

If you have ever had a chess engine analysing deeply on your notebook, you'll notice you soon hear the cooling fan rushing, the battery is sucked empty as your push the limits of the hardware. The ChessBase Engine Cloud solves this problem: Current chess engines, installed on high-performance hardware — your wish is their command! Use the cloud's computing power without burdening your notebook or upgrading to expensive hardware. Have top-notch processing power already. Then you can become a supplier! The Engine Cloud is also a <i>marketplace</i> where you can rent engines out to others. The latest edition is of course FAT FRITZ ChessBase's own AlphaZero-like AI chess engine running on 8-core CPUs and dual graphics cards.
