Data Location

Storj is globally distributed by default and has more consistent performance than a single region on AWS S3 across many geographic locations.

When a download is requested on Storj, the segments located closest to the destination are typically used to satisfy the request as illustrated in the graphic below.

Setting the region

Most S3 compatible tools require setting a region in their configuration. For these tools, the region can be set to global.

const s3Client = new S3.S3Client({ region: 'global' })
const s3Client = new S3.S3Client({ region: 'global' })
