What Is Decentralized Storage
Decentralized Storage Benefits
Decentralized storage is a cost-effective alternative to traditional public cloud services like AWS and Google Cloud. By distributing data storage over a network of computers, decentralized storage eliminates the need for large-scale, centralized infrastructure which reduces costs.
Beyond cost savings, decentralized storage provides additional benefits when compared to conventional cloud including enhanced data resiliency, availability and security; all made possible because of decentralized network architecture.
Filecoin is the world’s largest decentralized storage network. Filecoin consists of thousands of independent storage providers distributed throughout the world that store data.
Today, Filecoin provides cost-effective enterprise-grade cloud storage that’s used by leading universities and research organizations like UC Berkeley, the University of Utah, USC Shoah and CERN.
The future of cloud storage is decentralized.
