Cloudless is an event-driven communication framework built on-top of 0MQ to provide fast, reliable, easy-to-use library to address most application needs for communication over in-process, inter-process, or over the wire transports.
Using BSD sockets directly is such a waste of time for any modern application as almost always there will be a need to implement a few communication paradigms on-top of it, and that's where 0MQ solves the problem, but not quite entirely.
0MQ provides the most elegant way to communicate between any two parts of an application by providing a succinct API and utilizing a decentralized asynchronous message queues. Not only that, 0MQ also provides communication patterns where one could easily define the routing construct of messages between any two parts in a system.
Cloudless comes in as a transparent abstraction layer on-top of 0MQ to provide an ever-expanding set of communication devices and ultimately allow for constructing virtual networks with high level routing and abstract node descriptors.
