OORT Storage (previously known as OORT Storage) is a decentralized object storage service offering secure data storage and retrieval anytime, anywhere.
"Our aim is to create a world where natural language is the sole tool needed for data interaction," says Max (Chong) Li, the founder and CEO of OORT. "We envision OORT Storage to be adopted by more Web3 projects so they don’t need to rely on legacy data infrastructure to manage their data that is supposed to be decentralized. We also believe Web2 users and businesses can benefit a lot since we offer a price that’s up to 80% cheaper than legacy providers."
With our pricing model, users can enjoy a generous free tier that is always free, as well as pay-as-you-go rates up to 80% cheaper than AWS. Our service supports the management of both hot and cold data, and we're proud to say that after rigorous internal testing, we've achieved enterprise-level availability, durability, and latency.
To enhance and ensure user data privacy, we've implemented more than 27,000 geo-distributed nodes across the globe.
OORT Storage is designed primarily as a decentralized cloud storage platform. It aims to provide an enterprise-grade secure, private, and cost-effective alternative to traditional centralized cloud storage services like Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, or Microsoft Azure Blob Storage.
IPFS is a distributed file system that aims to make the web faster, safer, and more open. It seeks to replace the traditional, centralized model of the internet with a peer-to-peer protocol where each user acts as both a client and a server, sharing and accessing content with others in the network.
Public data & Cold data
1. Rely on erasure coding (Polar code/LDPC code), breaks files into small pieces.
2. Pieces are distributed across the OORT infrastructure nodes, ensuring redundancy and data integrity.
Stores data in MerkleDAGs, a tree-like structure that allows for efficient deduplication and versioning.
IP-based retrieval which collects pieces from multiple nodes simultaneously
Uses content addressing (CID) in which data is retrieved based on its content rather than its location.
