The Storj Labs Blog

Hello Everyone! It’s been two months since our last development update from our product team so we have a lot to share with you! The global pandemic has lasted longer than many of us thought and even under these circumstances it’s amazing how much our team has been able to accomplish. We’ve also seen some increases in developer usage from our community. Here are a few ways others are starting to utilize the network; NEM and IoDLT, Speed Up Sync Times for GETH, Private, Multiregion File Transfer with FileZilla.

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:

In this blog post I will share an overview of how I built the native Tardigrade integration for Duplicati. This is also a good introduction on how to build a new back end for Duplicati—although I do not know why there should be the need for another back end next to Tardigrade. 😊 For those who do not know what Duplicati is: it is one of the biggest open-source and free back up utilities out there which has plenty of “back ends” to connect to, which will hold the archived data for you.

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.

Today, we’re pleased to announce that FileZilla users can now use Tardigrade decentralized cloud storage as the storage service for their files. People choose FileZilla because it’s a fast, secure, and reliable file transfer tool, making it a great pairing with Tardigrade. Because Tardigrade is decentralized, all data stored on the service is private by default through end-to-end encryption, ensuring data confidentiality. On top of that, Tardigrade provides multi-region redundancy for each file at no cost and no complicated configuration.
