Decentralized cloud storage is more difficult to attack. On the decentralized Storj network, files are broken apart and spread across hard drives across the world— each hard drive is different hardware, in different geographic locations, and has different owners.
Capability-based security is also more efficient than the ACL model. Data is encrypted client-side – meaning that only you have the keys to your retrieve your data making it almost impossible for a data breach.
Storj DCS is faster and more predictable than competitors due to the way data is encrypted, split, and streamed in parallel. The STORJ network uses Erasure Coding to distribute file pieces over many Nodes located in different physical locations around the world.
Integrating with Storj DCS decentralized cloud storage is as easy as reconfiguring your existing config files, with no new code needed. It literally takes a few minutes.
The economics of decentralized cloud storage is more efficient than competitors. Decentralized infrastructure taps into underutilized, or latent hardware and put it to use in the decentralized cloud swarm. Storj is targeting to be on average 50% cheaper than other leading cloud providers such as Amazon S3.
