Backup target tardigard/ - decentralized, encrypted network

Out of the Blockchain-hype there was storj V2 storage-network. a fully encrypted, decentralized storage.

Now, is moving to V3 - a full S3-compatible network. still decentralized and with high encryption.

How it Works

With Tardigrade cloud storage, your files are encrypted and split into pieces client-side before being distributed across our network of high-performance storage nodes.

OSS partners, i.e. nextcloud, minio, restic?,

who integrate the into their sw. they get paid a share on every byte, the enduser store into the storj network!

Tardigrade is the enterprise, production-ready version of the Storj network, complete with guaranteed SLAs.


See how we treat our partners.

Tardigrade, and our open-source parent company Storj Labs are very passionate about supporting, building, and using open source software. It’s this passion that led us to create our Open Source Partner Program. With this program, every time your users store data on Tardigrade, we will share a generous portion of every dollar earned with our open-source partners. Forever. . .

Storagenode Operators:

everybody can run a V3 storj-node, and rent the spare space, one might have. (from RPI upwards).


The V3 Network is in beta, production ready in autumn (supp.).

Why did I post this?

I’m looking for a new backup-prg for my servers/WSs/customers and restic caught my eye. Since I’m a big fan of storj for a couple of years, it would be a big WinWin, melting the two technology-stacks together.

from my experience over the years with storj: very innovative, deliver high quality software, keep there milestones/timettable, good support. definitely worth a look.

Hello @chymian,

Despite your post sounding a lot like a PR, I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt and considering you a fellow sysadmin and not a spammer or PR hack :wink:, so welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

You mention it’s going to become S3-compatible soon, so why not just wait and use it as so? AFAIK, restic is already fully operational with S3.

hello @durval,
thanks for courtesy and the welcome.
despite a S3 interface, the tardigrade network does offer more features, which might be useful.
and It’ would give the developers a possibility to earn money with there software.
