Demonstrating the Power of Decentralized Compute and Storage
San Francisco, CA /PRNewswire/ - Today, Akash Network, an open-source, decentralized cloud announced they have teamed up with Filebase, the world's first object-based storage platform to deliver multi-cloud, decentralized web (dWeb) storage options for developers and enterprises.
Through this partnership, developers and enterprises now have the ability to pair dWeb applications with the thousands of existing backup tools, application SDKs and frameworks that they already know and love. By offering open-source dWeb compute and petabyte-scale object storage, Akash and Filebase can help to reduce cloud costs by up to 85 percent, compared to traditional cloud services.
"The Filebase API is S3 compatible, which allows developers to seamlessly leverage multiple decentralized storage networks for the first time," said Joshua Noble, CEO and Co-founder of Filebase. "We're excited to pair our S3 compatible access layer to decentralized storage networks, with the power and flexibility of Akash Network. We can't wait to see what our ecosystem builds through the pairing of dWeb compute and multi-cloud storage as one."
"Filebase is solving an onramp problem that's exposing the mainstream developer community to decentralized storage," said Greg Osuri, CEO of Akash Network. "We're more than excited for the Akash community to have vendor-neutral storage options with a frictionless experience."
A core goal of dWeb technology is to help people and organizations regain control of their computing and storage. By pairing Filebase and Akash, data can quickly migrate from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, onto a decentralized network of cloud providers.
"Decentralized, blockchain-based infrastructure services are quickly establishing themselves as foundational elements for the potential next generation of cloud IaaS," said Andrew Smith, Research Manager, Cloud Infrastructure Services at IDC. "These services bring differentiated technology to market which is applicable to real-world use cases like storage and compute cost reduction, data compliance, backup, archive, and long-term cold storage. The partnership between Filebase and Akash highlights the continued evolution and improvements to this emerging market segment."
