How Decentralized Cloud Storage Works #

When you upload your data to Storj DCS, your data is encrypted, erasure-coded, and spread across a network of statistically uncorrelated peers (Storage Nodes).

  • Satellite Dashboard - The Satellite Dashboard allows you to manage projects and access for your data.
  • Uplink CLI: The command-line interface allows you to upload and download files from the network, manage permissions and sharing.
  • Gateway: A service that provides a compatibility layer between other object storage services such as Amazon S3.
  • Client Libraries: The Storj DCS client libraries allow you to manage your data using your preferred language, including Go, Android, Xamarin (.NET/C#), and C. More language bindings coming soon!
