The Storj Labs Blog

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.

With the paint barely dry on our production release of the Tardigrade Platform, one of the areas where we’re seeing the strongest interest from customers and partners building apps is our security model and access control layer. The security and privacy capabilities of the platform are some of the most differentiating features and they give our partners and customers some exciting new tools. Distributed and decentralized cloud storage is a fantastic way to take advantage of underutilized storage and bandwidth, but in order to provide highly available and durable cloud storage, we needed to build in some fairly sophisticated security and privacy controls.

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.

Hello Storjlings! We took a little sabbatical from our normally scheduled bi-weekly development updates, but during that time we did a few small things. We launched Tardigrade into GA production! Ok, it was a BIG thing. What this means is that anyone can start utilizing our decentralized cloud storage network by going to tardigrade.io/satellites and creating an account. We have over 5,000 users with accounts already and we’re hoping to continue to drive growth on our network with the next set of open source, partner connectors we’re building.

Last week, Storj labs announced the production launch of Tardigrade, the industry’s first enterprise-grade, economically sustainable, decentralized storage service. We are really proud of our 99.99999999% durability, 99.95% availability, S3 compatibility, and upload/download speeds that are on par (or better) than the big three cloud providers. We’re proud of the fact that we’re able to price at a fraction of the price of large cloud providers while providing attractive economics to Storage Node Operators and partners, and setting ourselves up for economic sustainability as well.

Good news, we’re just 4-5 weeks away from our production release! Clients, we’re ready for you to push the boundaries of our resilient, reliable distributed storage service. Storage Nodes Operators will definitely see an influx of data flow onto your hardware! Opening the floodgates of our network is something we’re very excited about and we hope you are too. However, there are a few important implications we’ve been researching and working out that we want to share with you.
