Of course, our approach to data storage is not the only one.
If your business needs to store large data sets, you can build your own data center, or entrust this case to others and use cloud storage services. Fog storages (storing data on devices of third-party users) are also gaining momentum.
Each of these solutions has its own areas of application and industry–associated limitations.
For example, the construction of a data center is an extremely expensive and long-term project, which requires a lot of high-quality specialists. The work with the cloud is as simple as possible, but the risk of breaches is great, which had happened many times recently.
In practice, it's too early to talk about fog service (Storj, Siacoin, Filecoin) implementation into real business, but ideologically this solution is close to the clouds and is subject to the same risks.
Our solution is designed to combine convenience for the end user, typical for working with clouds, with the security and responsibility inherent in the datacenter.
