The whole infrastructure is redundant and scalable. Should you need some more storage? Just add a new node with some storage attached. Replication is working out of the box. And you control the accesses for any part of the grid.
Community decentralized storage at hand.
Providing an easy way to build the grid allows people to put their data whever they want. Using a secured, distributed filesystem
ensures the user can manage access rights in a convenient way.
Sure, it uses SSL/TLS, with strong x509 certificates, and this can be cumbersome. But we want to make that easy. Scripts are provided as well as documentation.
Don't fear security for its complexity. Love it for its simplicity!
Using most modern applications and system features, we are able to decentralize storage service. We use XtreemFS. This filesystem allows many things, among them:
- Native replication
- Strong x509 authentication and SSL connections
- Full decentralization
- Multiple entry points
- High scalability
Your data are safe. As the connections.
