IoDLT is a company that secures, records, and monetizes data from a wide array of sources, (including IoT devices). The company and wider NEM ecosystem have had difficulty making their blockchain data easy to access for application developers. By working with IoDLT to build a solution leveraging Tardigrade and MongoDB, we were able to build a decentralized, resilient solution that improves MongoDB sync performance, while decreasing costs vs centralized providers

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:

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.

We’ve got some big news. Storj Labs is partnering with MongoDB! We’re excited to announce the Tardigrade Backup service for MongoDB Ops Manager. MongoDB users can automatically back up their data directly to Tardigrade and enjoy the benefits of enterprise-grade security backed by SLAs. Tardigrade can quickly be configured to store database backups and snapshots from MongoDB Ops Manager in just a few minutes, with literally every file protected by end-to-end encryption.

Today, we would like to announce a tech preview of two powerful developer tools you can now use on Tardigrade. We have now integrated and tested Rclone and Restic on the Tardigrade Object Storage Platform. We would love for the Tardigrade community to test out the integration and give us feedback around the tools, initial use cases, and ways we can improve these integrations. Rclone Rclone, often referred to as rsync for cloud storage, enables developers to directly map files and directories from their filesystem to Tardigrade through a command-line tool.

Connectors bridge the chasm between the applications we use every day and the underlying storage infrastructure on which application data is stored. Our team has worked with our partners to build a series of connectors between Tardigrade, our decentralized cloud storage service, and our partners’ applications. What is a Tardigrade Connector? A Tardigrade connector is an application-level integration that enables the use of decentralized cloud storage in consumer software. Tardigrade connectors enable Satellites to measure the volume of data associated with a bucket and give attribution to them.
