IPFS is a global, versioned, peer-to-peer filesystem. It combines good ideas from Git, BitTorrent, Kademlia, SFS, and the web. It is like a single bittorrent swarm, exchanging git objects. IPFS provides an interface as simple as the HTTP web, but with permanence built in. You can also mount the world at /ipfs.IPFS could become a new major subsystem of the internet. If built right, it could complement or replace HTTP.
IPFS is also a platform with 9 apps listed on AlternativeTo. Browse all 9 apps for IPFS.
