Cloud storage prices haven’t changed much in the past 5 years. They’re about to! Today, we’re pleased to announce pricing for our Tardigrade Decentralized Cloud Storage Service. Since our founding, our goal has been to achieve pricing that is half the price of centralized cloud storage providers, or less. And, to do so in a way that is economically sustainable for us, for storage node providers, and for our network of partners.

Developers have been clamoring for a decentralized storage solution for pinning data on IPFS— and the Storj community has answered the call with storjipfs.com. The IPFS protocol is popular with decentralized app developers as a way to address content from its hash output. While it’s merely a way to address files across a DHT (or network of Kademlia nodes), it’s usually deployed with Amazon S3 or local storage on the backend.

Every quarter, we hold a public town hall to give members of our community insights into the progress of the Storj project. There are many different groups that have an interest in Storj: storage node operators, open source contributors, investors, STORJ token holders, employees—and increasingly—developers and partners. We always try to do our best to help all of these different groups gain transparent insight into the progress at Storj Labs.

During our Q2 town hall earlier this month, we received a couple of emails inquiring about pricing for the V3 network. We haven’t announced pricing yet, but we can share some information about the breakdown of the costs, and how pricing works in a decentralized network, along with some important details for partners and app developers in terms of the mechanics of billing and invoicing. Break it down for me Unlike traditional cloud storage, Storj Labs doesn’t operate a bunch of data centers, or even one.

Decentralized platforms stand out from their legacy, centralized counterparts in many ways. They’re generally more secure, private and reliable, but they’re also true ecosystems in every sense of the word, as they connect users and suppliers in fast, programmatic ways. On the Storj network, we have many types of community members. The two main categories are the people who help build the network (including storage node operators and the open source community) and the customers who turn to the network for economical, resilient, and performant storage.

In case you hadn’t heard, Storj Labs is building a decentralized cloud object storage service. Why would we do such a challenging thing? At a basic level, it’s because we believe the internet can be better than it currently is and we see how to improve it. We believe your data is worse off being stored in the centralized data centers of five multinational mega-companies. Solving this grand problem requires us to solve many difficult sub-problems.
