Storj Blog

Storj is a decentralized object storage network where data is encrypted client-side, broken into pieces, erasure coded, and spread across a network of fault-tolerant nodes. The goal for Storj’s V3 network is to provide developers with an object storage solution that is more secure, economical and performant than existing cloud storage options. This is made possible through protocol features like concurrency, parallelism, client-side encryption, and erasure coding (Reed-Solomon). The Storj test network (storj-sim) enables you to run all the components of the Storj platform (Satellite, Uplink client, and storage nodes) and test them on your local machine.

There are only three major cloud storage providers in the world outside of China: Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.

In our town hall earlier this week, our team shared updates on our Open Source Partner Program; farmer payouts; marketing and branding; and our engineering progress on the new V3 network. We also shared a demo of the V3 private alpha, including its 4K video streaming capability! The town hall meeting included about 15 minutes of presentations, a 6-minute demo, and 20 minutes of live questions and answers. If you missed it on Zoom, you can watch the YouTube replay below.
