The Storj Network and Tardigrade decentralized cloud object storage were built to ensure the data stored always remains private and secure. But how do we achieve this? First of all, every file uploaded to the network is encrypted before it ever leaves your computer. In fact, end-to-end encryption is standard on every file at no additional cost. Before a file gets uploaded to the network, it is split into 80 pieces, and each piece encrypted.

At Storj Labs we’re distributed system junkies. We enjoy building highly distributed, ridiculously resilient software. The Storj Network is currently spread across over 10,000 uncorrelated endpoints, and that number is growing fast. The global substrate of diverse, uncorrelated endpoints across which the network runs is unmatched by any other cloud provider. Storage Nodes run across a diverse distribution of operating systems, hardware types, geographic locations, and owners. Node Operator software runs on Linux systems like Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, and Fedora, as well as macOS and Windows, with a native MSI installer.

Hello Everyone! It’s been two months since our last development update from our product team so we have a lot to share with you! The global pandemic has lasted longer than many of us thought and even under these circumstances it’s amazing how much our team has been able to accomplish. We’ve also seen some increases in developer usage from our community. Here are a few ways others are starting to utilize the network; NEM and IoDLT, Speed Up Sync Times for GETH, Private, Multiregion File Transfer with FileZilla.

Aside from the development accomplishment shared below, we started designing larger pieces of functionality we will be sharing with you soon.

Hello Everyone! We hope you are enjoying your summer and staying safe. As a company, we typically meet in person every quarter to fully immerse ourselves into a specific topic or goal. Last week we had a virtual all company week where we all participated in an internal hackathon. The theme was, “Drink our own champagne.” Each team was tasked with building an application, connector, script, or anything that used Tardigrade as a storage layer.

We had our quarterly town hall on April 22. If you weren’t able to attend, you can watch the video on YouTube. As with every town hall, we provided some great updates and this one included a live (well, it was live when it was recorded) demo using our Go library bindings for Tardigrade. Beyond the town hall, the dev teams have been incredibly busy in the wake of our production release.
