By combining the strengths of IPFS, Filecoin, and top service providers, GhostDrive establishes a robust, secure, and fast peer-to-peer network. Users can trust that their data is stored securely across multiple nodes, benefiting from the decentralized architecture and ensuring data availability. The collaboration with trusted providers enhances the overall performance of GhostDrive, enabling users to seamlessly access and share their encrypted files while maintaining the highest level of data security.
Public IPFS (InterPlanetary File System)
Public IPFS is a widely used distributed cloud storage system that utilizes a peer-to-peer network to store and distribute data. IPFS employs content-addressable storage, where files are identified by their cryptographic hash. By breaking files into smaller chunks and storing them across multiple nodes, IPFS ensures redundancy and facilitates efficient content retrieval. Public IPFS allows anyone to participate in the network, offering a decentralized and censorship-resistant storage solution.
Private IPFS networks are similar to public IPFS but restricted to a specific group of participants. In private IPFS, data is shared and stored within a defined network, often within an organization or a closed community. Private IPFS provides the benefits of distributed storage while maintaining control over data accessibility and privacy.
Flash storage, also known as solid-state storage, uses flash memory technology to store data. Flash storage provides high-speed access and low latency, making it suitable for applications requiring fast data retrieval. Distributed flash storage systems distribute data across multiple flash drives, improving data availability and reducing the risk of data loss.
Object storage is a distributed cloud storage model that stores data as objects rather than a file hierarchy. Each object consists of the data, metadata, and a unique identifier. Object storage systems distribute data across multiple nodes, ensuring durability and scalability. This architecture is highly suitable for storing large amounts of unstructured data, such as documents, images, videos, and backups.
