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.

Ever since we launched Tardigrade, the world’s first decentralized cloud storage service, there’s been a lot of talk about the benefits of decentralized cloud storage. For one, due to the nature of a decentralized cloud storage network, they’re highly secure and almost impossible to hack. This means there will be fewer data breaches. Because each file is split into pieces, encrypted end-to-end, and those pieces are all stored on different Nodes, it’s more private than centralized cloud services, like AWS.

Tardigrade is the world’s first enterprise-grade, decentralized cloud storage service. Through decentralization, Tardigrade is more secure, more performant, more affordable, and more private by default than centralized cloud providers. What exactly is decentralized cloud storage? On the user’s end, it operates exactly the same as traditional cloud storage options like Amazon S3. But, instead of your files being stored in a big data center that’s vulnerable to outages and attacks, your information is stored on thousands of distributed Nodes all across the globe.

The VideoCoin Network is decentralized video infrastructure. This infrastructure provides developers with video processing services that are simple-to-use and inexpensive compared to centralized providers. Like Tardigrade, the VideoCoin Network is developer-oriented. The platform makes it easy to transcode files to various video formats, supporting H264 inputs and HLS outputs for files. Users can interact with the network API using standard REST API libraries and can even livestream their videos over RTMP and WebRTC.

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:
