What is Filebase?
Filebase is the first S3-compatible object storage platform that allows you to store data in a secure, redundant, and performant manner across multiple decentralized storage networks.
Filebase offers a geo-redundant inter-planetary file system (IPFS) pinning service that allows you to pin files to IPFS across multiple diverse geographic locations.
All files uploaded to IPFS through Filebase are automatically pinned to the Filebase infrastructure with 3x replication across the globe.
This ensures that your data is globally available and redundant at all times. Filebase acts as an easy on-ramp to IPFS and decentralized storage by offering a user-friendly web console dashboard, making drag-and-dropping files onto Web3 simple and easy.
Filebase also provides an S3-compatible API for widespread integrations and configurations in current workflows.
What problem does Filebase solve?
A lot of brands use Amazon's simple storage service(S3) to store data.
The problem with doing so is twofold.
First, it can get pretty expensive for large amounts of data. A lot of providers charge ~$150+ for a TB of data.
Second, if AWS goes down, IPFS servers go down, and with them the data that's being stored.
Filebase is not only a far cheaper service where your first TB of data costs only $5.99, but it uses decentralized technology to ensure that even something like AWS going down won't block access to your data.
