The Storj Labs Blog

Over the past several months, we’ve been working with the Ethereum Classic Labs and its ETC Core development team to build out an experimental decentralized architecture for GETH—the tool used to sync the blockchain for ETC developers. One of the most demanding requirements to support a copy of the blockchain is storage, and scaling that storage is difficult since the blockchain is a continuously growing database. Thus we set out to accomplish two goals:

In this blog post I will share an overview of how I built the native Tardigrade integration for Duplicati. This is also a good introduction on how to build a new back end for Duplicati—although I do not know why there should be the need for another back end next to Tardigrade. 😊 For those who do not know what Duplicati is: it is one of the biggest open-source and free back up utilities out there which has plenty of “back ends” to connect to, which will hold the archived data for you.

We’re excited to announce another native product integration to our community of Storjlings! Duplicati is a popular, easy-to-use, open source GUI that makes it easy to back up your data to the decentralized cloud. Because Duplicati can be used on any Linux, Windows, or macOS device, the Storj Labs community can now easily store encrypted backups of their personal data to Tardigrade and take advantage of the many benefits of decentralization.

Today, we’re pleased to announce that FileZilla users can now use Tardigrade decentralized cloud storage as the storage service for their files. People choose FileZilla because it’s a fast, secure, and reliable file transfer tool, making it a great pairing with Tardigrade. Because Tardigrade is decentralized, all data stored on the service is private by default through end-to-end encryption, ensuring data confidentiality. On top of that, Tardigrade provides multi-region redundancy for each file at no cost and no complicated configuration.

Here at Storj Labs we just migrated our production databases from PostgreSQL to CockroachDB. We want to share why we did this and what our experience was. TL;DR Our experience has convinced us that CockroachDB is the best horizontally scalable database choice in 2020. Why use a horizontally scalable database in the first place? Our top goal at Storj is to run the largest, most secure, decentralized, and distributed cloud storage platform.
