Interstacks has large scale deployments streaming data every second of every day from all over the world. The company was spun out of MAYA Design (since acquired by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG)) by Carnegie-Mellon University engineering alumni and is based on over 25 years of research and deployments of distributed computing systems. Interstacks incorporates a comprehensive hardware-software and information architecture for the rapidly approaching world of massive, distributed computing.

Interstacks empowers enterprises of all size to wake their world by quickly getting machines and sensors connected to real-time dashboards, alerts, and analytics. Increase productivity and reduce maintenance costs by using insights gained from real-time data from the physical word. Add smart connectivity to new or existing OEM products. Companies that become agile, real-time organizations will succeed in this winner-take-all world of now.

The founders of MAYA authored the book “Trillions”, a field guide to the imminent world of a trillion connected things. We are rapidly moving into the post-PC world of a trillion connected devices. How can we get all of the things to work together? How can we empower people to help create this post-PC world of computing everywhere, in everything? These are the questions that the Interstacks team is dedicated to answering.

Architecture for Trillions

When most people talk about the “internet of things” they are actually talking about their internet of five or six things, not the post-PC world of a trillion connected devices. Scaling message and control flow beyond trivially small numbers is hard. It is even harder to provide a path to go from easily connecting a few things, to connecting many things in many locations. Interstacks incorporates a comprehensive hardware, software, and information architecture for pervasive computing. We’d love to talk to you more about it. Email us at
