What is Filebase?
Filebase is the first S3-compatible object storage platform that allows you to store data in a secure, redundant, and performant manner across multiple decentralized storage networks.
To get started with Filebase, sign-up for a free 5GB account, then check out our Getting Started Guides:
Decentralized storage offers a different way of thinking about how to store and access your information. Data is distributed across nodes geographically distributed and connected through a peer-to-peer network. This is very different than a traditional cloud model which silo's data into regions that are prone to outages.
These nodes store the data using data sharding and erasure-coding. Sharding and erasure coding breaks objects into small pieces called shards, encrypts them, and distributes those shards across these storage nodes.
Each node only has access to a small shard of the stored data at any given time. To retrieve the object these peer-to-peer networks only need a portion of the data’s shards to compose the data for transmission.
Geo-Redundancy is the practice of placing the physical nodes that are part of decentralized networks in a diverse variety of geographic locations. This allows the peer-to-peer networks that connect these nodes to be resilient to catastrophic events such as natural disasters, fires, or infrastructure compromise, ensuring that not all nodes on the network will be destroyed. Data stored on these nodes are stored in shards through erasure-coding. When servers on these networks go offline, missing shards are automatically repaired and uploaded to new nodes, without any interruption to you.
When the data redundancy is 100%, Filebase is able to achieve 3x redundancy for every object.
For a deep dive on Geo-Redundancy, see our documentation here.
Filebase manages all aspects of the data storage layer on your behalf and eliminates the complexities associated with storing data on any of the supported networks. Some of these restrictions include minimum file/sector size problems, retention issues and retrieval delays, and requiring the use of special software or skill sets to use these networks.
Filebase uses a unique and proprietary edge caching technology. If a recently or frequently accessed object is downloaded from our service, there is a high probability that this object will be cached in our edge layer. If data is cached on our edge, you won't be asked to pay for bandwidth consumed.
Since Filebase is S3-compatible, it works out of the box with S3 API compatible tools, SDKs, and frameworks. Check out the following sections to see documentation on a variety of different types of configurations and use-cases:
