Nowadays, Data has become a big deal in today’s digital market. With the new invention of technology such as Artificial Intelligence and IOT, information increases to a high rate.
In 2010 approximately 5 billions of users were using smartphones. Now, most of the gadgets were connected to the internet, so you can be sure that the rate of the data increases to a high rate over the year.
Data storage has always been a critical task for us. There is always a problem that how to store a significant amount of data for a long period, in such a way that the data remains secure.
There is an extreme need for a storage system that is secure and can store a massive amount of data.
In the case of traditional cloud storage, it works by allowing users to upload their respective data in the cloud.
Once the data is loaded into the cloud, then service providers will save the information in their respective data centers. Whenever any user wants to access the data, they need to send a request to the data centers.
Furthermore, this is quite a lengthy process that delays in delivery, and sometimes it doesn’t work well.
The massive use of databases comes with their sort of problems. The servers require standard control and constant maintenance.
The technology needs to carry these kinds of tasks in such a way that the data kept secure and refreshed regularly. Furthermore, these large data servers can cause a lot of damage to the environment.
Now lets us deep look into how companies were tackling these kinds of storage problems.
Storage marketplace is the representative in between those who were searching for a storage system to store the data and the providers who are ready to store the data for them.
This work is done by sharing the files across different networks. Firstly, you have to encrypt the record shared by the network. Furthermore, the data gets sent to the individuals.
The data is broken into pieces if you wish to retrieve the data, then you have to extract each’s pieces from different networks to decrypt it.
There are many companies like File Coin, Sia and many more operates as a storage marketplace for
Data storage. They provide flexible, secure and cheaper storage than Google, Amazon and DropBox.
As the demand for data is increasing day-by-day, the need for low-cost storage has become necessary. Google mail provide low-cost storage. but when we forget the password, the Gmail password recovery becomes too tough.
But there is one risk in the marketplace is that the providers those who stored the data permanently, if they lose the network, they will lose the data too.
Storage Infrastructure refers to a set of hardware and software elements that needs to facilitate in the system. Blockchains have a common problem regarding the storage of data.
Arweave have a unique approach, as they store the information on-chain. It’s a new data storage blockchain system that is base on unique access consensus tool.
This mechanism allows a permanent for the first time. It is stable and available at low cost.
Blockweave is a kind of data structure following a blockchain. It provides on-chain storage at low cost.
As the rate of data raises in the network, the quantity of hashing needed for consensus decreases drastically. This diminishes the cost for storing the data.
The customers at Arweave pay only once and store their valuable data for such an extended period.
POA(Proof of Access)
Proof of Access is a new mechanism for storing the data. With large volumes of data being copied, electricity is used while mining will decline over time. Miners provide as much as the reproduction of the Blockweave is possible.
It allows and enables a long-term on-chain storage of data. In case, of miners, they don’t share the whole block. They just broadcast a “shadow” in small size.
But black shadows, allow different links of the network to redesigned the block from scratch. We stored the data on-chain, which uses the unlimited network for storing the large and small amount of data.
It is a self-organized absolute mechanism. Slow and not responsive miners will have a low reputation, while quick and fast data storage that is shared with the miners in a particular network will give a positive reputation.
Finally, I want to say that storage infrastructure is essential for the low and high amount of data. By introducing the unique protocol, Arweave is the prime leader in the industry.
It provides scatter applications with stability and resistant-backend.
