Learn more about Filebase’s integration with the Sia network.
What is Sia?
Sia is an open source decentralized storage network that leverages blockchain technology to create a secure and redundant cloud storage platform.
Filebase works directly with Sia as a node operator, meaning Filebase manages all storage contracts on behalf of Filebase users. Every object that is uploaded to a Filebase Sia bucket is split into multiple pieces using Reed-Solomon erasure coding that features a 10 out of 30 algorithm. Objects are split into 30 pieces then geographically distributed to Sia host servers all around the world. Only 10 of the 30 pieces need to be available in order to process a download request. That means that 20 pieces of the object can be destroyed, offline, or otherwise unavailable, creating native redundancy and high availability.
