Stratos Partners ColdStack to Integrate the First Decentralized Storage Aggregator
Stratos is proud to unveil our latest partnership with ColdStack, a Decentralized Cloud Aggregator to integrate Stratos decentralized storage! As decentralized Cloud ecosystem continues to grow, Stratos is excited to collaborate with ColdStack enabling the easy access to Stratos secure, efficient and scalable decentralized storage solution for more projects and users through this integration.
“We are very excited to work with Stratos on this integration. ColdStack’s goal is to unite the decentralized storage ecosystem to compete against centralized companies like Amazon, and a critical part of this mission is to integrate novel decentralized storages which offer new, specialized approaches to data storage such as Stratos. One of the things that makes ColdStack unique is our ability to quickly integrate newer decentralized storages, and offer the advantages they provide to our customers, so we are very happy to add Stratos to our list of available decentralized storage networks” said Alexander Shishow, CEO and Founder of ColdStack.
“We are glad to partner with Coldstack to provide secure and reliable decentralized storage services. Stratos decentralized storage network is a scalable, reliable, self-balancing elastic acceleration network driven by data traffic. Coldstack provides a unified API for easy data storage and retrieval. Together we provide a solid infrastructure solution for all storage requirements. The services provided by the joint-force will satisfy all applications that want to embrace decentralized technology” said Bin Zhu, Founder of Stratos.
Why Integrate Stratos?
Stratos offers a number of useful services which can help to elevate the ColdStack platform. Their decentralized “Data Mesh” architecture allows for rapidly accessible storage functionality, and the additional immutability provided by the Stratos storage mesh ensures the integrity of data stored with them, and through the ColdStack platform. Stratos uses a Proof-of-Traffic algorithm to incentivize their network, in addition to creating greater efficiency by balancing their network based on regional demand.
In particular, ColdStack is fascinated to learn about the video, media, and content storage features offered by Stratos. Our specialized infrastructure allows for easy and efficient upload and retrieve of media content, effectively creating a decentralized content delivery network (CDN). Such content must typically be rapidly accessible, with little to no delay between a user’s request to play content stored in a media file and the actual playing of this media. This not only allows for traditional media to be easily accessed, but also enables the decentralization of two-way streaming.
Such content can be particularly tricky to store in an efficient manner, however Stratos has created an intricate system which is able to calibrate such delivery by taking into account factors such as system demand and access location.Based on this architecture, the Stratos community can create decentralized iterations of YouTube, Netflix and other streaming applications. It is no secret that streaming giants such as Youtube and Netflix are subject to the same issues centralized storages such as Amazon are known for — they are insecure and often wanton in handling customer privacy and data, and are subject to their own internal policies which results in the removal or censorship of content based on arbitrary, or even malicious decisions. By addressing such issues, Stratos is becoming a much more prominent entity in the decentralized storage ecosystem, and will continue to grow.
Why it Matters
ColdStack believes our AI aggregation will provide the means for decentralized storages such as Stratos to properly compete with centralized giants like Amazon and Google. By making access to Stratos even easier, we are confident that the efficiency offered by Stratos will inevitably drive more traffic to their network as ColdStack begins to scale. ColdStack creates a level playing field in which data is stored based on efficiency, and helps to eliminate the barriers that projects may face when attempting to gain attention in the overall data storage industry.
Offering access to Stratos through ColdStack means we make it even easier for traditional enterprises to store data with their system.
By combining the advantages that Stratos offers with the entire decentralized ecosystem, ColdStack’s all-in-one portal to decentralized storage can become a go-to solution for businesses and individuals alike. As we had mentioned, Stratos is positioned to provide specialized data storage solutions, and their developments regarding content delivery and media storage give them the means to compete with services such as Youtube and Netflix. Stratos will play a major role as ColdStack scales our abilities to store “hot” data, or data that must be frequently accessed. Through the integration of Stratos, we help to show that ColdStack is much more prepared to expand as the overall decentralized storage ecosystem expands as well. As novel decentralized storages such as Stratos become available, ColdStack will prove itself as the most adept platform in regards to the inclusion and integration of these unique DSNs in our protocol, and in turn the benefits they provide.
ColdStack is a Decentralized Cloud Aggregator which allows for the aggregation of Decentralized Cloud Storage Platforms or Decentralized Storage Networks (DSNs) such as Filecoin, SIA, Arweave and Storj. Coldstack enables the easy use of these platforms without significant integration efforts regardless of an individual’s familiarity with DSNs and allows one to access almost any DSN through the S3 protocol, making migration to ColdStack easy.
As the first-to-market Decentralized Cloud Aggregator, ColdStack offers a single-entry point to any DSN, optimizing the final costs for consumers with our proprietary AI-based pipeline. Much like how Uber supplies its clients with convenient and cost-effective rides and deliveries from a huge pool of drivers, or how 1inch sources liquidity from a number of different exchange pools, ColdStack supplies its users with the most convenient way to access the world’s most affordable, secure, and efficient storage space from any decentralized cloud.
