What is Storj?
Storj DCS (Decentralized Cloud Storage) is an encrypted, secure, and cost-effective object storage service that enables you to decentralize object data everywhere, using a simple logical instance.
Storj DCS offers affordable and predictable pricing, S3 compatibility, a robust library of open source technical documentation and familiar development tools - along with a vibrant user community - which enables developers to economically and easily learn and leverage decentralized cloud storage technology to take control of their data when building the next great application or service.
Storj DCS is the world’s first open-source, decentralized cloud storage layer that’s private by design and secure by default - enabling developers to build in the best data protection and privacy into their applications as possible. The zero trust architecture, multi-region high availability, default encryption and edge-based access controls minimize risk and give only you, or those you grant permission to, access to your files. The result is that you take back full ownership and control of your data.
Storj DCS' distributed and decentralized object storage is optimized for larger files, especially where those files are accessed regularly from geographically diverse locations. Common ideal use cases are: General backup, database backup, private data, multimedia storage, large file transfer, hybrid cloud, machine learning, VR/AR, IoT data, NFT related digital assets or multimedia streaming. The following video will stream directly from the decentralized cloud and show how it works: https://link.dcs1.storjshare.io/s/jxqy2wdbf5qeaxo4a2eq6yw3gthq/videos/Storj%20Final.mp4
