The Akash Network and Filebase will be providing multi-Cloud decentralized storage options, according to an update shared with CI.
Today, Akash Network, an open-source, decentralized Cloud revealed that they’ve partnered with Filebase, the world’s “first object-based storage” platform in order to offer multi-Cloud, decentralized web (dWeb) storage options for application 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,” the announcement explained.
By providing 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 release noted.
Joshua Noble, CEO and Co-founder of Filebase, stated:
“The Filebase API is S3 compatible, which allows developers to seamlessly leverage multiple decentralized storage networks for the first time.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.”
Greg Osuri, CEO of Akash Network, remarked:
“Filebase is solving an onramp problem that’s exposing the mainstream developer community to decentralized storage. We’re more than excited for the Akash community to have vendor-neutral storage options with a frictionless experience.”
A core goal of dWeb tech is to assist individuals and organizations with regaining control of their computing and storage, according to the announcement. 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.”
Andrew Smith, Research Manager, Cloud Infrastructure Services at IDC, added:
“Decentralized, blockchain-based infrastructure services are quickly establishing themselves as foundational elements for the potential next generation of cloud IaaS. 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.”
Akash Network claims to be the world’s first “decentralized” and open-source cloud, which aims to accelerate deployment, scale, efficiency and price performance for “high-growth industries like blockchain and machine learning/AI.”
Known as the “Airbnb for Cloud Compute,” Akash Network provides “a fast, efficient and low-cost application deployment solution,” the announcement noted.
Developers leveraging Akash Network can “access cloud computing at up to three times less than the cost of centralized cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Utilizing containerization and open-source technology,”
Akash Network “leverages 85% of underutilized cloud capacity in 8.4 million global data centers, enabling anyone to buy and sell cloud computing.”
As noted in the release, Filebase is “the world’s first object storage platform powered by multiple decentralized storage networks.” Filebase helps customers “save over 90% on their storage costs compared to traditional cloud providers.”
Filebase’s proprietary edge caching technology “helps customers achieve industry-leading performance when fetching data from decentralized networks.”
